I took my 11 year old son to Sheffield and Liverpool (we're also going to Birmingham and Manchester) and he absolutely loved it!! We went Pick hunting at Sheffield & he found one of Genes and was also given a set list by one of the road crew.
I would definitely recommend the ear plugs - he's worn them at both gigs.
The only downside to all of this is he now wants to learn to play guitar - but it's got to be on a guitar 'like the one Tommy plays'!:shock: Hope you & your daughter enjoy the show!!

We managed to get some earplugs from Boots.
There are some shirts in kids sizes but I think they're the same price as the Adult ones (£22) :(

Son (10) and daughter (8) have been to Newcastle (Full make up) and will be attending Manchester and London. My son's first Kiss show was at Download a few years back.

Ear plugs are a must for little lugs - We got some that spring into the ears on a plasic strap from B&Q for a few quid.

Yep, almost 30 years since my 1st KISS concert as an 11 year old - I'm taking my 12 and 10 year old Daughters to their 1st show in Brum tonite.

Quite emotional about it tbh! :oops:

Tried to get my kids to come. The eleven year old is too interested in miley Cyrus and jls and the six year old is a bit young....however I should really take her after all I named her BETH....

my daughters first gig was girls aloud with the wife,and her ears were ringin,but she thought it was very dull!!!

So this time shes going to rock,with her Paul make up on. Its gonna be a bit strange,having to behave,and not get too pissed up at the gig! ha ha.But very proud.

and ive got a drunken metallica gig next week with mates to make up for the lack of beer!!!!! :wink:

At 19 months old, my daughter's a little bit too young for this tour. Maybe next time, though.......assuming there will be a 'next time'.

MY two Daughters (KISSettes) wanted to go, but at 8 and 6, I thought they were a bit Young. (Cramp my headbanging anyway!!!)

They are both mega KISS fans, and sing along in the car, or when I am blasting KISS out of the stereo.

We are all going to London next week for a few days, but only I have a ticket for the Wednesday gig, so if they are adamant, I may see if we can all get tix for the thurs!!!

Took my 12 year old twin girls to Sheffield.
They both loved it. For one of them it was their first ever gig, the other had seen Whitesnake and Deff Lepp last year.
We all got painted up as Paul.
They're going to see Lady GA Ga in June, ( I opted to give that one a miss and I'm regretting it now) and I'm secretly hoping they come home thinking Kiss was better, but if anyone can give the boys a run for their money it may well be her.
Either way I think they'll be hooked on going to gigs, cant help thinking most will be a let down after these tho'!
