If you have seated tickets for the show, take your seat for the support act, then in between them and Kiss go to the customer services desk tell them you’re having issues with someone say near you not allowing you to stand in your seat and ask if you can move to the floor. They usually hold some back so you should be ok to move.

This gave you a 30 min set and the opportunity for photos and autographs with all 4 where they spent a great deal of time doing this and chatting
You then were asked to "leave" the arena only to get back in, ahead of the masses, to wait around for your "make up" photo where you were passed through the line very quickly and efficiently, so you missed the opportunity to get on the rail, if you had a standing ticket
With the afternoon show, it was well worth the money, but if it is not to be included this time, it's a personal opinion if you want to spend the money on the photo opp only!
Thanks for replying.

Good luck!

Well, after telling myself for months that I wouldn't go with Paul's voice in the state it is, I finally caved and bought tickets.

This band has been my favourite band for 40 years precisely. At this point, I honestly don't really care what the stage show is, what the set list is or who turns up to play the songs. I just feel I should be there or I'd come to regret not being there.

It’s ok. He’s going to lip sync. His voice will be perfect.

It was the lip syncing thing that sold it to me, at least he'll sound half-decent.

I thought about not going because Bill Auction isn’t the manager anymore, One of the gigs is a Sunday, Eric wears a stupid hat in public and Paul’s paintings aren’t as good as he thinks. Then I remembered that Eric is a better drummer than Peter, Peter is too old and both Peter and Ace couldn’t be relied on by any sane person to do a whole world tour. Then I remembered that this has been the case other than for about 4 years since 1979 which is pretty much my entire life as a kiss fan, a band that I consider to be the best of all time, think about every day, collect meaningless shit by despite being 46 years old, have travelled the world to see and will cry over when it is finally over. So I decided to go, multiple times and spend way too much cash in the process. I can’t wait, won’t waste a minute of it looking for faults, enjoy taking my 7 year old daughter and will tell tales of the legendary Kiss until I’m gone. :D

Great post!! It's brilliant that you get to see your daughter enjoy KISS, gives a whole new perspective to a KISS show.

This tour is a celebration of a legendary band. I can't wait for the shows,the meet ups and to say thank you to a band who have been a constant in my life for the last forty plus years.

Totally agree with the above posts. Taking my son too, he's the same age now (11) that I was when I first saw the Alive 2 cover at school (totally changed my life!) back in '78.
I'm kind of glad that they're stopping before the quality of the band wanes beyond the pale (lip synch or not) but at the same time it's been my whole life (we all know that feeling). I mean what are we all going to do? What will there be to look forward to???
Of course, everyone will say that we will all still meet up...but we won't...
Think I'm just having a bit of a sad day today, the penny is dropping that this really is it :cry:

It must be unbearable for poor Ray (board member), he's been going to see them since 1862. Back then they used gas amps apparently.
It's his wife I feel sorry for, she'll actually have to spend time with him now...I've been there & believe me it's not pretty :roll:
