The visuals are pretty fucking cool.
The setlist gives me a certain feeling of déjà vu.

Yep, it wasn't the crime against humanity it was made out to be by some.

"Samurai Son" sounds real from the clip and better than the night before.

Doesn't sound like canned vocals.

If he's going to use a vocal track he should prerecord a "live" vocal. Not outright play the song off the album.

that sounds awesome! I think Paul was likely embarrassed by the reaction to the canned vocal, and it sounds like he spent a good amount of time in the past couple of days practicing, he sounds good singing it for real!

Absolutely. I think he understands it was a faux-pas and he's corrected it. Let's all breathe a sigh of relief and move on. :P

Not bad at all. The song has played with attitude and Paul sounds rather ok, he tries to sing it with attitude, simply rocks. Also backing vocals work well.

Actually listening to that again, I'd say it's one of the best DRC performances I've heard - the guitar tone especially sounds great, really dirty and rock 'n roll.

That was actually really enjoyable. For all the stuff from KISS HQ and some fans about it being a pc-created tune with many levels and wotnot, this actually sounded a better version for the CD.

Excellent job, KISS. Excellent.

If the entire set was delivered with the same intent as DRC then Osaka will be a superb concert. They really sounded on fire in that clip. Hope it continues.

Man it's cool to see a new Kiss song played live. Awesome. Maybe this song will be to Japanese Kiss fans as DRC is to Detroit fans.

Sounds good. Very powerful intro visuals, but I wish they'd have had some sort of new version of either the rising or decending intro.. That is very effective and makes them seem larger than life when they take the stage from a slow rise or descent

Other than than, looked powerful and impressive.

I love the opening with Detroit Rock City, they even added streamers that reach the first few rows
