It was a great tour... Let see what the next chapter of the tour will be, looking forward to the next round of anticipation will be for the next North American Tour 2013-2014! :)

Thanks for all who updated the setlist during this round of The Tour!

Fun tour, Motley's presence on the bill made them ramp up the actual show with more pyro 'n junk...however, hopefully with more focus in the upcoming dates on KISS they further ramp up the tour. If they put the show on steroids and add a couple gems to the setlist I might go to the Monster tour.

Was surprised by how empty the lawn was at tonights show was. 106.9 WCCC even announced that everyone under 12 gets in free, but the law seemed at least half empty (if not more)... would have to guess the total attendance at around 7 or 8 thousand, with a total compacity attendance of 19,000+ I think.

Total capacity is 30,000. The Pavillion itself holds 7,500. I didn't get a good look at the lawn personally.

I'll second that indeed. Who'd have thunk we'd be getting excited about common songs used as rotating encores!

Okay, so maybe 10 or 11 thousand then.

I've talked to a few friends that frequent Comcast. They said the lawn was roughly 1/3 full. You yourself agree with your, "but the law seemed at least half empty (if not more)". Which would bring attendance in the 14,000 to 16,000 range.

Capacity is 30,000.

Even half full is a good crowd.

15,000 is a great crowd no matter who's counting. Especially when you consider average ticket price appears to be north of $100 dollars.
