OMG....another even better gig than Sheffield!!! I was sitting about 3 blocks from the stage and the sound was sooooo good....and I had a good view of he stage. The crowd was soo much more into it than in Shefield. Same setlist but Gene stuffed up his lines during I'm an animal.....Tommy had some issues with his guitar (I think during firehouse) but apart from that KISS KICKED ASS yet again!!! This is shaping up to be one of my favourite tours!!!

Ohh yeah....some oldish woman in front of me with big knockers got 2 backstage passes and was asked to come to the door on the side of the stage after the gig.......she had two passes but went on her own!! Was tempted to ask her if I could have one but didn't....am sure she would of told me to piss off.

I am in KISS heaven........bring on Liverpool!!!

One word

WOW

So much better than I expected. Having heard a few recent recordings, I thought Paul Stanley seemed to struggle a bit with the higher notes, but this was absolutely fanfookintastic

Huge thank you to the guys who gave me change of a fiver outside Central Station, meant I could get the metro home and saved me a £20 taxi fare

Amazing how the backstage in Sheffield and Newcastle look exactly the same as The Staples Centre in Los Angeles!! I wonder how many people think they are seeing Kiss walking to the stage once the lights go down every night.....wellI guess they are, just not that stage :lol:

Crowd seemed a lot more up for it in Newcastle (something I expected as gigs like this in the North East are somewhat few and far between!) and the band certainly seemed to feed off that in comparison to last night. A few technical hitches during tonights show, nothing that detracted from the vibe though - video wall on one side of the stage and a lack of confetti aside, night two of the tour was a resounding success - I even had Doc Maghee stood next to me at one point :shock:

Merch sales on this tour are going to be killer - both nights the arena staff have been blown away by how much merch the band can shift so if you are going to any of the other shows, if they haven't got your size when you get there then chances are they will restock it later on - I tried four times in Sheffield and twice in Newcastle before finally getting a crossed guitars shirt in Large, only to discover that I actually needed a medium as these shirts do run big, must be American sizes.....

Looks like it was another great night in Newcastle last night :D
I can't wait for my first gig of the tour on Friday, counting down the days.
By the sounds of things I'll be trying to buy all the shows from the UK tour on CD, the band seem to be tight and on top form these days :D

It was fantastic - I've been going to gigs for 29 years and that was still one of the best. Totally got into it and sang myself
hoarse :D

Fantatsic night- Started of in Trillions and met Starchild Mark, sorry didn't get a chance to chat properly and really hoped you enjoyed the gig.

As soon as I got in bumped into Don (AMF) and stood with Ray (Rsauye) and my geordie mate Bill. First Kiss gig in 28 years where my best mate Mad Mark wasn't with me, looking forward to seeing your antics in Brum and London Mark.

The show built and built, outside of first few rows it was a little subdued until CCN, and then from Love Gun onwards is was pretty mental everywhere. What an enocre, Kiss totally proved they are The Hottest Band In The World.Paul really played upto the Newcastle crowd and must have mentioned "Newcastle" about 50 times. *-) voice was so much better than Islington and all the band seemed to be really enjoying themselves.

The Sheffield reviews were spot on, and Ray said it was a slighlty better show than the previous night. If they carry on like that I can't wait for Wembley on the 13th. I am really looking forward to taking Mrs HKA and Little un so they can at last see what all the fuss is about. The 2 London gigs will be extra special as I think most of the Kissinuk members will be there. I even enjoyed the support band.

I saw Karl down at the front on one of the crowd shots and the camera zoomed in on AMF in the seats. I wonder if anyone saw Phil from Durham who was pictured in all the Islington show reviews?

Lets all hope for a 40th year tour on the same sort of magnitude. Thank you *-) $-) ACE-) 3-)

From the Youtube footage it looks like the place was rockin' a little bit more than Sheffield. Kinda wish I'd gone now...
