I have a friend who's there and when I asked her 'How does it look?' she replied with "Looks full".

I haven't told her the set-list at all for 2 reasons;

1) Don't wanna spoil it for her
2) She's not a KISS 'fan' per se

So it was fun to get these two texts off her;

1) "They played Crazy Nights!! Damn!!"
2) "Oh, and I love Shock Me!"

She also stated that KISS are 'failing to win the crowd over' - but then, she thought they were flat at Donington 2008. It's odd getting texts from a KISS show from a non-hardcore fan.

Glad to hear it was a big show though. Excellent news.

Same setlist.

Great show.

Gene flubbed the start of I'm An Animal and Paul had to put his timing right. He'd started too soon.

Caught Gene's stage used pick thrown at the end of I Love It Loud. Still sticky and covered in blood.

Great night.

For the record the crowd seemed great and really into it from where I was. Certainly the buzz afterwards is all positive.

Couldn't tweet throughout as my battery was going. Apologies.

I got a text from my mate who was at B'ham ( as well as Sheffield).

It says: "Arena full. Band doing good"

Descriptive bastard. :lol:
