Lip Synching. Yay or Nay?

So it's quite clear that Paul (Maybe Gene??) Isn't singing live for a good portion of this tour.

Does this bother you?

Yes, it totally does. They've bleated on for years about it just being them live on stage, now they are doing this and not even admitting it. It stinks. They are quickly destroying their legacy.

OK - Let's face it, Paul is 67 years of age, has been singing for over 50'ish years & has known throat problems

If he needs to use some "limited" support to help him with high ranges, the ones that he so easily hit over 40 years, or so, ago then I am cool with that

How can we expect the performance to be the same as it was, during their peak, of 1977? Does your car still perform as well as it did when you first purchased it each year that it ages and grows old?

I think that is quite common for some of the bigger, mature performers to use pre recorded tapes to help them through a show - I have just seen Def Leppard & Cheap Trick in Dec 2018 & both had this helping them produce the show that we all want to see

I'll hold a fuller, informed judgement until July this year, but I'll also, hopefully, have my sensible head on?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Because of their previous opinion of it I think. I
For me it's sad they have to but hey ho. Last tour. You want great performances for folks to remember you by I guess. I guess we wait until July to formulate proper opinions.

I do think it must be killing Paul inside to have to go this route.

Yes it does because it means they have gone on too long. Other shitty 70s and 80s bands doing it is one thing but not Kiss. I’ll be there & I’ll enjoy every show I attend but it is one tour too long.

I thoroughly enjoyed WASP the last time I saw them... and that was pretty much watching Blackie mime along with the CDs.

Paul cannot sing anymore, it's that simple. So, at this point, it's either significant vocal 'assistance' or nothing.

I'll take the former, for one last time.
