Sorry I'm late to this. They announced the tour the day before the KK8! You should have seen all the people at the Holiday Inn scrambling around...for phones...etc..Why on Earth did they do that? Anyway, it seems most people got what they wanted...I have the UK dates, the Vienna, 2 Russian, and 4 Australian....the US seems so passé now...(ha ha) although a lot of people we know will be at MSG...It seems the UK will represent at most Euro shows....and all over the world!! Rock On.
Ziggy played guitar...or was it Ronson?

My first of 3 dates this summer last night at the O2 and I thought it was a stunning show and a cracking way for Kiss to say goodbye. Eddie Trunk and all the other doubters .. go fu*k yourselves and suck up to / free ride Ace in his 500 capacity club. The mixed demographic at last night’s show ensures a great legacy being left and the smiles on all the faces at the end just said it all.

Agreed. On all points.

I saw the Brum and Manchester shows and was very impressed. I took my wife and son to the Manchester show and they were blown away and both said that it was better than the Sonic Boom and 2017 shows that they saw.
After the last tour I was a little apprehensive because of Paul's voice because I thought he wasn't up to it in 2017. Fair play though because this year he held back at times without copping out and pulled it off. The backing vocals were subsequently very good. Hats off to Gene in particular who sang and played as well as ever.
Hard to believe after seeing them 17 times that this is it.

You know. I’m in 2 minds about this given how great the Manchester show was. Do I really want to ruin that memory with a Download show where the elements play a factor in the sound quality??

What a quandary to be stuck in huh?

Pete does have a point regarding an open air/festival show. It would be tragic if (as it will be) someone's only experience (and memory) of a live Kiss show is an open air gig where Mother Nature may have a say on the sound. For me though, the band's lifespan is linked to Paul's voice. If it doesn't deteriorate beyond what it is now, further shows on this tour are well worth seeing. (If only he'd refrain from needless gobbling off between songs his singing might be better for it! Then again, that's him, that's Kiss.....as you were!).
