    Will it be a sell out? There's still tickets available I think.

    I doubt if it will, I am surprised they are playing the Point, maybe they need a big stage for the show?
    I lived in the USA at the height of Kiss mania, (I even had the comic that was printed with their blood, prob. not such a good idea nowadays lol). I moved to Ireland and nobody I knew had even heard of them.
    Maybe people will go coz they know they put on a good show. But how many Irish people actually own (or have stolen) a Kiss record/cd/Mp3? Not a lot I suspect. Hope it doesnt kill the atmosphere if its half empty!
    I will be there though, although knowing now that Gene Simmons is some old Jewish guy spoils the magic a bit for me!:pac:Here is my pic, look out for me there lol.

    I think you'd be surprised how many Irish own their music, the majority of the attending crowd I'm sure. I bought my first Kiss album in the late 70s.

    I may need to mug a Goth down at the Central Bank to get enough white makeup for my large head!;)

    +1

    I bought Destroyer back in 1980. Many out there will at least have a compilation or one of the Alive Albums.

    Really getting a buzz now: gonna be a great show \m/

    Let's see - just off the top of my head I've 10 albums on vinyl, pretty much the same on cassette and most of the rest of the Kiss albums on CD......been a fan since '79 and I'm definitely not the only fan I know......I don't think this will come close to a sell out but hoping for a good sized crowd......

    I'd be going if I wasn't going away that day. Pity, I'd have loved to have seen them live


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,673 ✭✭✭ RayCon


    Well Ive been waiting to see them live since I first got a copy of Alive II on double Red Vinyl about 1982 when I was 10yrs old ...

    Yip. Got all of them initially on either tape or vinyl, then within the last few years got them all again on CD.

    A few ommissions alright, but looks like a great setlist. I was watching some youtube vids earlier and I can almost smell the pyrotechnics :D

    Roll on Friday in Dublin Rock City :P

    Not at all, There'll be a fair few people there in makeup male and female. just don't go as the drummer because nobody wants to be peter criss, not even peter criss.
