Still here for the bored...
Not unpopular at all. I'd love Tommy to sing one of his songs. I was thrilled for TAF, even after enjoying it in Vegas -- guess that just because it's my entry point.Dr Like wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 11:06 amUnpopular hot-take here, but I'd rather they let Tommy sing one. He was doing that for a while a few tours ago, and I thought it broke the set up a bit - added something fun to the show. I loved his Outta This World song from Monster. Add that to the set-list for pure perfection.
Also - I don't know how much I loved Tears are Falling. When they played it in Vegas I got nostalgic for it, but by Oakland, I was all "this again?"
I'd love for one of Tommy's songs to be in the set. I was happy back in late 2012 when they added Outta This World into the set and was hoping to hear it live, but by the time KISS played in my area again they were no longer performing it.Dr Like wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 11:06 amUnpopular hot-take here, but I'd rather they let Tommy sing one.

Glad you were able to get better seats and had a great time. I'm not sure if Staples Center always does this, but I saw people getting free upgrades during the 2nd night TOOL show there. Apparently lower level tickets dropped in price to where it was the same as the 300 sections before, so they allowed free upgrades to fill those out.hardrockfan818 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 19, 2020 12:40 pmOkay, I know i'm two weeks late with my review for this show.. but I had a freaking blast!! after having dinner at the LA Live Yardhouse, my mom and I made our way to the Staples Center.. and we had gotten tickets in nosebleed sections of the Staples Center.. But the Staples Center nosebleed sections are designed like a fucking death trap, not even joking or exaggerating.. There's like, one flimsy wall made of fiberglass on the balcony and the staircases to get up there are STEEP.. When we tried going up the stairs, I looked down and I swear to God, it looked like I could fall over the railings with one wrong step, so I was overcome with a panic attack.. So my mom said "You know what, let's go see if we can exchange these tix for closer seats, I don't care if I have to pay a bit more".. So then we went to guest services to exchange them.. and to our luck, they exchanged them for some unsold seats on the lower tiers, free of charge!! That was so cool of the Staples Center to do for us! After we got our new seats, we were able to enjoy the show!! I did have to miss a bit of David Lee Roth's set because of the ticket situation.. but I made it back in time for the last few songs of his set and I thought both bands were fantastic!! Seriously, both bands freaking killed it that night!! The tribute that KISS did to Kobe Bryant during the encore was so damn moving.. If this was indeed the final KISS show for Los Angeles, I was glad to have been there.. If not, here's to more KISS shows in LA someday down the road..
