It has been a long wait, KISS played for the last time in Holland on june 18th 2010 in Arnhem! And today, exactly 5 years later their back in Holland in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam!
We arrived early at the venue, because we wanted a good spot at the show and we knew there were around 30 fans who had early entry tickets. Lucky enough around 10 fans waited there when we arrived. We talked with fans and before we knew it the doors went open. We had to run like hell to try to got a good spot and we did, front row between Paul & Tommy!
At 9:30 PM it was time with this announcement: "You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best, The Hottest Band In The World...KISS"!!!
With a lot of smoke, pyro and bombs KISS opened their show with Detroit Rock City followed Deuce, Psycho Circus & Creatures Of The Night, 4 show openers at a row and they just got started!
This was show #5 for us (we saw them in Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Berlin & Leipzig) and we still got the goose bumbs! Everytime we see them it is a party all over again and tonight it's no different! Especially when you're front row, it's like you're sucked into the show and nothing beats a KISS show!
Gene spit fire and did his bloody bass solo, flew up to the little platform above the stage to play God Of Thunder. Tommy shooted off rockets, Eric pounded the drums like a Cat and Paul flew over the crowd to the little stage in the middle to perform Love Gun, we almost could touch him went he flew over us!
When Paul announced Hell Or Hallelujah he announced it as a Kliss-classic, he said: "what the hell I'm saying, a Kliss-classic?", lol.
They dropped Parasite and played Cold Gin instead. This was the setlist: Detroit Rock City, Deuce, Psycho Circus, Creatures Of The Night, I Love It Loud, War Machine (Gene spits fire) Do You Love Me, Hell Or Hallelujah with Guitar and Drum Solo, Calling Dr. Love, Lick It Up, Bass Solo (Gene spits blood and flies) God Of Thunder, Cold Gin, Love Gun (Paul flies out to the crowd) Black Diamond. Encore: Shout It Out Loud, I Was Made For Lovin' You & Rock And Roll All Nite.
It was great to see KISS in our home country again! The band was awesome tonight and there's so much to see at a KISS show, it's a adventure! All we can say we had a blast again!
