  • ****ing brilliant night. What a show. Too knackered to say Anything else.




  • I feel really bad, don't know how it happened but my DSLR found it's way into my wife's bag, and she didn't get searched :rolleyes::rolleyes:

  • Great photos! The close up shots look fantastic.

    On a side note, we got stopped at a check point last night on the way home( I was driving). The looks the Garda gave us staring in the window, with our wigs and make up still on!




  • Great show, pure entertainment from start to finish.
    Like Paul said "some bands want to save the world and tell you how you should live your life" and well, some just want to rock and roll all night and that's what we got! :)
    The bombs, the blood, the smoke, the flames, the confetti, the bazooka, the flying guitar, the flying bass player!!!

    Great gig, great crowd, great band!




  • Went to see this last night with a mate(without makeup Im afraid, much too inhibited and repressed for that type of fun)and it was a great gig. Very low key stuff though, they couldve been a bit more flamboyant:)...........at one stage the drummer pulled out a bazooka and blew a set of lights out of it. I thought Lovegun was the best song of the night.

    The crowd were a bit subdued though. At least from where I was standing. Paul was brilliant and trying his best to get everybody going, which he did. Did anybody else think the crowd were a bit limp?
    I also thought Pauls voice was great, didnt expect he'd be that good a singer live, especially after all these years(and masses of drugs and booze over the years). Him and Gene looked in great shape for a pair of old rockers, obviously theyve been hitting the gym big time.




  • i went crowd surfing for rock n roll all nite

    great gig.

  • Those photos are class! Thanks man! :D

    What a night! Best fun ever, just a perfect gig. Absolutely loved it, the theatrics, the showmanship, the cheesiness, the air guitaring audience... Anyone else got whiplash from hair swinging/ head banging!? Awh, how nice were the band to the audience?! They know how to treat their fans <3 Gene was scary with the green lights and blood, actually did freak me out. So I can see why they were seen as devil music in the 70s!!

    I dressed up and random KISS fans came up looking to get a pic taken with me and my friend (she was Starman)! Good fun! Met a dude dressed as Spaceman - I think we look very convincing :D

  • First time to see them & honestly, it's in my top three gigs I've ever been to. Totally amazing. My ears are still ringing (& I was up toward the middle of the balcony). That was a rock show to compare all other rock shows to.

    Did anyone get the flash drive of MP3s from the show that they wouldn't mind sharing ? I went to get one & my buddy pulled me away so he could chat up some chick & I never ended up getting it.

    Hey i was standing right in front of you by the end of the night when paul went right over our heads onto the mini stage near the seating area!!!

    it was an absolute classic night, got talking to Taking Dawn guitarists afterwards sound lads and they really know their music

    Cheers ! What a great idea, more bands should do that




  • That was incredible, they really know how to put on a show. Probably my second favourite gig i've been to (AC/DC just refuses to shift from the top spot!)

    great gig.

    Ha I think I was right behind you. I only saw one person crowd surfing. I was to the oft of the stage as you look at it.




  • What a gig, just wow. Ended up with Peter Chris Make-up to complete the lot with three friends but just wow. Voice is still gone today.




  • Anyone know who the official photographer was that was just outside the entrance to the main audatorium at the start of the night? We were dressed as the four members and she stopped us and took a couple of shots. Would love to know if she was from one of the papers.

    my boy went for a surf as well but wound up on the floor

    apparently (i don't remember too well) i made it to the front, got escorted out the door and got right back in when i said "listen, i accept i've done wrong... and i'm sorry.... but at the end of the it's kiss, and we're all just tryin to rock n roll all night and party ever day"

  • That was just amazing.
    I LOVE Paul Stanley.

    I think if they were playing again, I'd have gone tonight.

    :) Was awesome.




  • we were pretty much front centre for the whole thing, there were a bunch of scouser lads, musta been in there 40's following the band through all their UK concerts! they are going to manchester next. they were off their t!ts, funny guys

    anyone know if these recordings are DRM'd? Wouldn't be interested if they are




  • very unusual for me, but the more I think of it and remember different parts of the show the harder I'm finding it to put words to it..........

    for me as a KISS fan for 30 years last night was very very special, the whole show was just superb, gotta be the best stage show I've seen, and I've seen a few......they were just awesome, sound, songs, theatrics, pyro everything was top notch, the fun factor was off the charts, had 2 lads with me that knew little or no KISS and I just told them that the show would blow them away and it really did, they couldn't believe it, just superb stuff.......

    already planning on organising my trip to Las Vegas to see KISS when they decide to retire and just do a run of shows there......would love to see them come back to Ireland, the crowd was very decent in my opinion and with a show that good they should do even better next time from word of mouth.....
    I'm just finding I've a silly smile on my face :D




  • :) Was awesome.

    They were the very definition of "awesome"




  • Sorry to mention this but I noticied one little thing, when ever I was looking around me no-one seemed to be singing along.

    Anyone else notice this?




  • What a gig last night. The Fireworks, Stage Expansions,Set list. Really didnt think they would play 5 songs for the encore. God Gave Rock and Roll to you II was brillent and so was I Was Made for Loving You.

    Was in Block E 5 rows up from where the Mini Stage was. Didnt expect to get that close to Paul Stanley.

    It will be hard for any other band to live up to this show in the O2.

    I actually saw people arrive late and leave just before the encore where i was sitting. Nothing more annyoying then people arriving in late blocking your view.




  • Last night was the 3rd time i've seen a full Kiss show, i've been at Festivals where they've headlined but i've not bothered my arse to see them.

    First time was at Donington in '88, without make up, coming onstage at around 6pm, off at 7.30ish, still daylight, just didn't do it for me.

    The second time was in 96 when they co-headlined Donington wit Ozzy, this time they had full make up and closed the show, i watched them for maybe 40 mins and got bored so went for more beer.

    I wasn't gonna bother going last night but a lot of friends back in Wales had seen them in Liverpool and Birmingham in recent weeks, and they all said it was the best show they'd ever been to. One of my mates, Paul, NEVER says things like that lightly and is a hard core death metal fan.

    I picked up a pair of tickets last night for 50Euro, didn't really wanna pay much more, now i'm so fcukin glad i did, and if they were playin here again next week i'd pay 100euro for a ticket.

    As for best gig i've ever been to? Nah, but i put it in the Top 10, which is no mean feat as i've been to hundred's over the years, including some specials (Nirvana at Reading, Metallica at 100 club in 87).

    If anybody wants a copy or 2 of the pics i took in High Res (i compressed them to get on here) just pm me your email




  • WOW

    That is all

    Ha , it was a unreal gig , Good timing aswell since we just arrived to the O2 as they were making the walk to the stage and the fact the people at entrance 3 let us in instead of making us walk around to entrance 1. The only bad thing was that it went way to fast , would def go see them again if they come back and they got a big enough crowd(more then i thought)




  • looked like fun.. but i get the impression a lot of not so hardcore folk turned up to see a big stage production, which is what KISS r all about. n what the O2 was designed for.. i could probs enjoy just about any show there. with earplugs

    its a great idea theyre doing this, but i know family Simmons are very rich as i seen the show on Bio can someone upload a copy per chance?
    but certainly a better memento than a screen stars 100% cotton T. don't suppose they did a proshoot of it too?!
