I'll be there! Trillians in town is doing a Kiss "All-Dayer" if people fancy making a day of it!

I’ll be there! It’ll be my fourth time seeing KISS, and my first in the closest arena to my hometown of Middlesbrough!

Looking forward to it. I’m taking a friend who doesn’t know KISS outside of the two hits they had here (Crazy, Crazy Nights and GGRNR2U). He’s in for a treat.

If the performance is a good as last night, Newcastle should be a phenomenal night. Hope you all have a blast.

Gonna be at arena early to try and get up front with the Mrs, she's nervy as hell around crowds, her first gig of any kind too, offered her seated tickets but she wanted to do it "right" as she puts it, so a long couple hours hanging by Utilita for us, as in her mind, says if she can't see the crowd cos it's all behind her, she'll cope bless her. No doubt a long wait to get out afterwards too but all worth it to finally share our love of Kiss together live. So if anyone else is heading up to the arena around 4ish, be cool to meet a few motherFAQers!

It's been brilliant to hear pretty much every review of the UK leg so far be so positive, it's bittersweet that this will probably be the last time I see them live (not counting out a future tour possibility, under the Terry Funk/Ric Flair retirement rule) but by all accounts, it's gonna go out with a bang! So let's all fucking love it loud one more time!!

I’ll be setting off in a couple of hours, just need to apply the makeup first! Can’t wait. I saw them in Berlin last month outside, so curious to see how it is inside an arena and hopefully it’s still just as bombastic.

Had a nightmare with my train being cancelled last second which has led to me standing for hours on a different one leaving from another city.

Nearly there and looking forward to another spectacular show.

Sat people watching from my hotel directly opposite the arena, seems to be filling up quickly already. Foyer downstrairs was full of KISS fans decked out in tour t-shirts, make ip, and full on costumes.

Tremendous. First night watching the painter, I think he was okay, and I think overall the crowd felt the same. But damn, the show I was right up close and man Gene used every muscle in his face, he kept me entertained throughout. I dont think it tops Manchester tho, that night just seemed a lil more special.

There was 11 pods still, they hid them well 😂

Awesome. :) Glad you had fun. When I saw them in Louisville, I thought the Painter did a nice job. He was just OK, too.

I'd of enjoyed it more if he didn't speak, I don't know something bout a painter getting the audience to compete for loudness is a bit strange. Painting Elton John upside down was impressive tho, and I thought he was painting Glenn hughes but it turned out to be slash 😂.

Just back from the show. Again they delivered in spades!!! The crowds have been some of the best I've witnessed during my time watching Kiss in the uk.
Brilliant to see so many happy faces coming out of the arena at the end.
Glasgow to come and I'm sure the band will get the send off they deserve.

Dave make sure you post your photo mate, was a pleasure catching up with you and your family. See you next year!! 😀

UK show times so far have been approximately 20:45 to 23:00. Would assume Newcastle last night was similar.

:lol: I also counted the pods! And when I got to eleven i counted them twice more as I knew I would post on here about it today! I also laughed to myself at the strangeness of standing at a gig counting pods.

I enjoyed the show whilst wishing I had got to see the band in their prime. Plus the sound in that venue is dire.

Still, Heavens On Fire, Cold Gin, DRC, Deuce and Lick It Up were my highlights.

Don t know why they have to do God of Thunder AND War Machine. Or Say Yeah or I Love It Loud.

I hate that they switch the full lights on the crowd so much. I don't want to see the crowd. I want it to be dark and edgy and escapist.
I really wish I'd seen them in the 80s.

Still it was a fun night. It was great to be able to walk around the town during the day and see so many shirts. Surreal to be in pubs hearing peop!e discussing different eras.
Oh and fair play to Tommy. Does what he says on the tin.

They were great fun, as good as I've ever seen them and they were all in fine form. Lip-sync aside, when Paul was singing, he sounded great, he commanded the stage, he was the Paul we all love

I really enjoyed David Garibaldi. The half hour flew by. There were a couple behind me booing during his performance, which I thought was distasteful, especially as one was dressed up as the Spaceman, and wondered whether or not Tommy was about to get the same.

Same set, same show I saw in Berlin, but oodles more energy and fun. I was worried the show would be scaled down for the arena, but it didn't seem to be, and the best part... unlike Berlin where it was outdoor and daylight, it was inside and the visual spectacular was even more so. This is not the last time I see KISS.

Tommy seemed a lot more relaxed than in Manchester but that might just be because I couldn't see his face expressions on the night. Most importantly, I made suds I saw the flying rocket this time too 😂

What a night!! If that's my last time seeing Kiss blow up a stage live, then I'm a happy man. Got to spend it with the love of my life breaking her Kiss cherry, 3rd row from front on Tommy's side. Enjoyed Garibaldi too, gutted I couldn't get that NUFC painting that got auctioned off! 😂

Great to see so many smiling and enjoying them without trying to pick out faults. At start of the tour I wasn't thrilled about paying to see the lip syncing but after being there last night, the experience of everything in totality was well worth it!
