    Look at all the people here tonite!! Sorry...wrong band...

    Ok so last nite my daughter and I went to see the hottest band in the world - KISS!!! We actually went to a show instead of just watching YouTube or Facebox videos and then crying about Paul singing to backing tracks or lipsyncing (did I even spell that right? My super expensive phone doesn’t even know...) To answer everyone’s main question...did Paul lipsync to any songs...and I was listening intently just for that reason...maybe. On just one. I Was Made For Loving You sounded too freaking good. Or maybe they just worked really damn hard for my money.

    So I’m so old now that my daughter got her sip on before we left to go to the show. And I swear to God if this shitty page “reloads” again I’m going to start my own site. Cause that worked out so well the last 37 times...But, I digress...

    I’ve seen KISS probably upwards of a dozen times over the years. Allegedly. And who knew you could bring chairs into Blockbuster Pavilion??? The last time I tried that was 29 years ago at a Buffet show and we got turned around at the gate. Oh, and apparently Blockbuster isn’t even a thing anymore and it’s called PNC Pavilion. Regardless...I should have dropped the 27 thousand extra dollars on top of our 39 dollar tickets for VIP Parking. Holy shit we walked like a whole five minutes to the show. And there was like fiddy dudes selling knock off shirts but not one - not ONE - was selling Beerz along the way.

    So we get to the “pavilion” and Jesus Christ Beerz are $13.50!! So I immediately bought two because it’s hot, hot, hotter than hell (see what I did there? Geez I crack myself up..) Anyway, the kid wants a shirt we can both share. Actually I wanted the shirt and that’s my excuse for paying fiddy bucks for it. I didn’t even know what it looked like until we got home because contacts in I can’t see shit up close. Which is an issue when you take in a rescue dog who literally shits like a dinosaur. Getting old sucks. But at least I still look good..

    So I always buy “grass passes” at Blockbuster - I mean PNC Pavilion. 39 bucks ain’t bad to see a band and you actually can see everything from the grass. The only down side is trying to Sober Walk around 10,000 people when you’re half lit. Ah, it takes practice. But...if you have a friend who has tickets close to the stage...problem solved! Tickets are exchanged, Beerz are bought, the only few seats remaining up close are filled and holy shit there’s Paul within a hundred feet of me!! Did you know you can smoke cigarettes AND marijuana here?? I left my smokes in the car and immediately regretted it. Some 97 year old woman is like 10 feet from me smoking.

    So I’ve seen Dave every single time he’s been thru here since 86. No, I’m not cool enough - or old enough - to have driven myself to a “classic Van Halen” show. Fuck you I don’t care. Seeing Dave for the first time flying over my head on a goddamn surfboard was good enough for me. And I’ve seen VH every single time they’ve come thru here, Sammy days included, except the last tour. I’d had enough of Wolfie - what a stupid fucking name. I named my daughter after something cool too - Elise. Not fucking Wolfie. Can you imagine your fucking name is Wolfie?? No wonder he’s fatter than fuck and twice as ugly. Fuck that guy.

    I get distracted easily. Sorry. I was supposed to review the show. I had a girlfriend once who said I was easily distracted by anything “fast, loud, and shiny. And if it’s wearing a short skirt you’re half way out the door”.

    The show was amazing. If you get the chance to go see KISS on this tour..do it. How did Paul sound? Better than me, and that’s saying something. Cause I can sing like a motherfucker. Fuck y’all yes I can. Ok, seriously...even my 19 year old kid leaned over and said “Dave can’t sing like that”. And she’s right. Paul screamed out higher notes that anybody his age shouldn’t be able to hit. I was there and I have the video so fuck you if you think those are piped in. They ain’t. The pyro wasn’t distracting in the least. The only thing distracting from the show was the two guys next to me who were drunk AF and I think one of them thinks we’re a couple now. I can’t be sure but I did drink the beer he bought me. I made sure it was unopened.

    Bottom line - this is the absolute best KISS show you’re ever going to see. If you’ve never seen them, or if you’ve seen them a 100,000 times - go to this show. I know, it’s the End Of The Road tour, lol. Which means you’ll be able to go see them in Vegas three years from now. But check this shit out. And if you want to get up close...I know a guy.

    Look at me IT'S DONNIE P!!

    Glad you are still around.

    The main thing I got out of that was $13.50 for a beer which is fucking insane.

    My KISS fan here pals boycotted the UK tour due to the miming but if you enjoyed yourself then it's all good.

    First of all, it ain’t gay if a chick is involved. I think that’s like some kind of rule or something.

    They'll extend the tour another year in order to return to those cancelled meet and greet markets and get the cash.

    Either that, or they'll wait 6 months after the tour concludes, then "Back...By Popular Demand...KISS 2022!!!!"

    How can I miss KISS if they never go away?

    Even Eddie Trunk is making fun of Kiss these days. He said you know this pandemic is real if Kiss is leaving money on the table. That cracked me up.

    Maybe Chaim didn't want to run the risk of his castle going up in the next wildfire... though from the pictures I've seen, it didn't look all that flammable from the outside. Of course, if the reports of him moving somewhere in the vicinity of Mt Rainier are correct, that's a potential of climate change induced wildfires being an issue there too. Fucking air quality was horrible up here for damn near a month.

    I don't buy his "property tax" argument, because property taxes in California have been kept artificially low by the Prop 13 ballot measure passed in 1978. He will probably be paying more in property tax up here. There's no state income tax in WA so that's always a benefit for a rich guy like him.

    I wonder how much this will cost? It certainly won't be free.

    Buffalo Rock City - Western NY Tribute to KISS was released Dec. 15th.
    http://www.buffalorockcity.com/
    Listen to the songs at bandcamp - link.
    Robby from the Goos does a pretty good scratchy voice version of Hard Luck Woman.
    I got a kick out of the cover....

    The Dubai NYE show is all over YouTube. Soundcheck too.

    Sirius' Classic Rewind played the audio this afternoon. Very strange listening to Stanley's raps without any crowd response.

    Finally got around to watching the KISS 2020 Goodbye concert in Dubai..

    I fired up the ol' VLC Player and see it's 3:15 long - wow, should be quite a show!
    Turns out it wasn't all concert and after a while I started taking notes. Didn't keep
    track of times until a little while in but it doesn't matter I suppose. Here's what I
    got:

    Begins with Concert Promo video - not bad
    "Arrival" segment - US to Dubai airports
    "commercials"
    11:00 - "Production" segment w/engineers, pyro, "smart" COVID wristbands (which
    were actually pretty cool as far as contact tracing goes)
    23:30 - commercials
    26:00 - "Taking Care of Business" - (stage build, pods, pyro)
    38:30 - KISS clip montage of classic TV appearances, commercials, parades, etc.
    Many had (EliteWorks@e-bay) "watermark" on them
    45:00 - Doc interview
    53:30 - interview with 3 fans (they pay VIP to be included in this 5 minute segment?)
    58:00 - show begins with Detroit Rock City
    58:53 - after the line "I feel uptight on a Saturday Night", Paul says something (looks
    like "How you doin'?") - you see it but you can't hear it.
    2:46 - encores begin, but first...
    3:00 - A rep from Guinness World Records comes out and says that the show was trying
    for 3 World Records. The first 2 are still being verified but the final one (some pyro thing)
    was reached and (SURPRISE!) he had a certificate to present to the band. And Eric had
    finished Beth - seeing him next to Gene in his monster heels was kinda amusing.
    Maybe a subliminal depiction of status in the band?...
    3:03 - R&R All Night and fireworks display
    3:12 - God Gave R&R to You plays over the credits (I like their version of this song)


    Other observations not noted above:

    - Too lazy to go back and listen but I swear there is a guitar lick in Heaven's On Fire
    that borrows from Joan Jett's I Hate Myself For Loving You. And "borrows" might be
    being generous... Anyone want to confirm?
    - Some lyrics were changed (for this show or do they do that now in a PC world?). No
    "virgin soul" in God of Thunder - instead we got "mortal coil" or something. And I
    think there was at least one other I neglected to note - maybe in "Cold Gin" (but it wasn't
    the booze reference)
    - Paul's between song stage banter really needs an audience to "work". I'm a longtime
    fan and acknowledge it's on the cheesy side but it was kinda cringe-worthy when even a
    minor "Lemme hear you out there!" is met with a barely audible "yeah".
    - Beth. With all the jump cuts (or whatever you wanna call 'em) throughout the show,
    this one only featured cameras showing him behind the piano. On drums he had an
    overhead camera (which woulda been cooler if they would have left it there for more than
    4 seconds) but here, nope. And I'm guessing the orchestral drums/percussion was a tape.
    - Maybe you guys can tell if the vocals/music was live but except for the 58:53 note
    I mentioned above, eh, who knows...
    - Do You Love Me included in the encores. I always liked this tune and was happy to
    see it included. Considering their catalog I woulda expected it sooner with some other "big"
    song in it's place
    - After watching, I was left with the feeling that this was a "dress rehearsal" for an actual
    show. I've seen them in 1978, '79, '84, '88, '90, and '96 and this show seemed to lack the
    "spontaneity" or live feel of any of those. Or is that how "polished" they have become? Are
    they now a "production" and not a "concert"? I realize that it's tough for any act to fill the
    seats (especially a "classic rock" act) but this one was tough to watch at times. On the other
    hand, at a non-COVID show they might blow my doors off, right?...


    Wrap up:
    My guess is KISS will always have someone who wants to see them live. Their fanbase has
    been exposing their kids to KISS music for years and some of it has probably stuck in their
    heads. Not quite cult-like but it's on the verge. We talk here of the future of VH and what's
    gonna happen (my guess - we never see another Van Halen band perform on stage) but I'm
    really more interested in the future of KISS. I can absolutely see Gene charting the future
    of the band with other members (hell, they're half way there!) - his kid, Paul's kid. I think
    he's looking at the big picture (he always has) and I must admit I would curious to see KISS
    v2.6 or whatever we're at. Maybe not live at a venue but just to see how it plays out.

    That's all.
    [edit - I watched this on the Bay. 7.5G]

    The lyric changes were likely a request (mandate?) from the Muslims.

    I watched some of it on YouTube. Really weird with the usual banter and no audience replies.

    Also forgot to add - production-wise this seemed to be a massive undertaking.
    Pretty impressive that they made it through with no major glitches.
    Yeah, it's KISS but can you see any other band trying to pull off a show like this?

    And yeah, forgot to mention the Rat crew guy with the sleeve tats.
    Nothing against tats or crew guys but he would not be on my list of hires.
    Something about him rubbed me wrong - maybe based on the "Arrival" segment
    when he's walking through the airport with his mask below his nose. Might be the
    best at his job but I'd interview #2 just to be safe.

    Too lazy to see if this video has been posted previously but...

    When Kiss Classic ‘God of Thunder’ Left Paul Stanley ‘Devastated’
    Frontman hoped his track would become his signature song - until
    producer Bob Ezrin gave it to Gene Simmons. - link

    Man, some wild disco high-hat action going on here...
