Same old faces(wouldnt want to name them in case i missed some out)new faces,same old KISS......i wouldnt want it any other way. :wink:
I honestly thought the band were on fire,Singer and Thayer are incredible, a superb foil for Simmons and Stanley,Cold Gin and Got To choose were the highlights for me but i cant remember a bum note on any songs.I honestly felt like i was watching a DVD and many times wanted to press pause to take in what we were all witnessing.The photos show everything whats good about following this band,visually amazing,musically stunning and finally the bond between KISS fans both on this forum and those who flew in from wherever to not only see the show but sell tickets to some of us!!(Thanks Edward,you game me the chance to witness something very very special)
Roll on May when im sure we will be given some more great memories to stick in the KISS memory bank!

P.S.Will let you know when my feet next touch the floor....
P.P.S.Remember Wrexhamfan(Chris) no more sitting in the corner with a bowl of chips on your own :wink:

Happy times for Kiss fans,thought Pauls voice was good enough as well. :D


I tend to get a bit over excited at KISS gigs and it is general admission, not I'm standing here please stay away! But if I offended you in any way then apologies.

And FYI they aint pony tails they're braids and it's called having some individuality!!!!!!!

As far as the gig goes...it was fun!
ACK!...It's Rock 'n' Roll!!

All i remember of Cold Gin was me and Danny making a b-line for the front, it was mad, and the place was rockin'!

Don, Got to Choose bought back memories of Irving Plazza... Foookin' Sound!
They try to tell us we don't belong, but that's alright, were millions strong......

No good spending years beefing up by selfabuse, if you can't put it to some use. We always knew it was going to get rough!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've knocked up a swift site containing approximately 140 pics I took along with a link to my Rock N Roll All Nite clip on YouTube.

Also managed to record the "full" show on audio but needs some mastering before unleashing as it was done on the phone.

Well what a turn up!

This time last week I was nearly crying I wouldn't be there - now nearly crying cos I was!!

As I posted before, I couldn't get on the guest list so, was going down just for the craic.

Got home on Monday after work to a Facebook msg from a guy with a spare ticket! He'd read my desperate plea on the O2 group and offered me the spare for £75!!! :shock: I gave him his arm back when we met up! :lol:

It was great to catch up with some of the Cobo Posse! Don (AMF) - "that wer KISSTORY!!" Chris (TSTB) - you Legend!!

DTK - glad you all got in - it really shouldn't have been so much hassle for you guys! :roll:

Danny, Gary - pleasure as always!
Dants - great to finally get to speak to ya
Ash - I'm grunge - I'll let you know who I am next time too! :wink:

Tim, Alex (it was mint!), Hutchie, jaymze - nice one lads!

HKA very kindly got me a parking pass - I then got parking ticket for not writing my Reg No. on the bloody thing (Can you believe that? :roll: ) Paul - thanks for helping me out and the fast train back to Ruislip - I'd probably still be on the tube now!

If I've missed anyone - apologies - but, thanks to everyone for making it a night I'll never, ever forget.

I got in just after 3am - totally buzzing!!

I was my 3rd best KISS gig - truely, truely 'kin amazing!

Ask Don - Gene looked straight at me! (and a little bit of wee came out!)

now sports....... :wink:

What a superb night. The atmosphere and the venue size set it up to blow us away, but it needed a band on form and up for it for that to happen and Kiss were seriously up for it. Anyone wondering whether to buy tickets for the tour with doubts read on this site about them looking old/fat/bad voices - i say ignore it all, its all meaningless drivel as soon as that first chord hits you. Kiss are as good as they have ever been and Paul is looking and sounding great.

The set list was perfect for me - 2 news ones and my 2 all time faves of 100,000 Years and LMGRNR meant that the rest of the set could be anything they wanted. Dr Love was an unexpected highlight. I didnt know about the Co2 problem at the time and thought there was only 1 song in the encore to leave us wanting more.

Touted tickets? Pay what you feel something is worth to you but remember that every event has a marketplace. I wouldnt criticise a fan for wanting the market rate for a spare ticket and equally if someone decides that is too much then that is their choice. I paid £175 each for 2 tickets for me and my brother, got them from a guy with a big longstanding reputation on ebay that he wasnt going to risk for the sake of a couple of hundred quid. It was easy and in my opinion the bargain of the century. He also gave me enough personal info about himself if I needed to blag it. Fortunately I didnt cos despite the Liverpool credit card I could never have claimed them as my team and would have faced ejection if that security question had been asked :lol:

Those that reported touts only made life difficult for genuine fans who were prepared to pay a bit more. I hope those complaints made on this site didnt lead to any of the few that got turned away being disappointed. :roll: :roll:

Good to see Father Jack and Frehley75 in the show and to meet Baykiss afterwards ..... the extra 5 pints afterwards did me no good at work yesterday on top of the pregig 5! The kebab after we left you also made matters worse.


What a Kiss year this is going to be!
