KISS Live In Dortmund!!!


After a 2 hours drive by car we arrived at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany on may 12th. Lucky enough there were only 20 fans already waiting, we knew some of them so what's better than to talk about our favorite band?
Around 5 PM the secrurity told us that we would get a green wristband to secure our spot in the inner circle! So that was a nice suprise.
Around 6:30 PM the doors went open, we were first in line at the gates, so as soon we went through them we run like hell to the stage, no one was standing there (yet) so we got the best spot in the house, front row, middle of the stage!
So, now all we could do is waiting till it's time for our favorite band!

Around 9 PM it was time for our band KISS when we heard the announcement: You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best, The Hottest Band In the World...KISS!
As soon the curtain was gone, we saw Gene, Paul & Tommy coming down on a platform to the stage with a lot of smoke and fire with Eric coming down on his drumriser behind them!
They started the show with, always a great opener, Deuce! Here's our video:

The stage was based on the Las Vegas stage from their European tour in 2015, with some new elements like a new riser at the front of the stage and new risers for Gene & Tommy during Rock And Roll All Night!
We had great spots and were so close to the stage that we could see all the sweat, every impression on their faces and we got goose bumps everytime they look straight at us!
During Lick It Up, Paul & Tommy stepped up the riser and went up for their guitar solo.
We could the feel the heat of the pyro's, we were surrounded by the smoke and that was so cool, we loved it and wouldn't chance a thing!
The band played tight and sounded great! There was a great vibe amoung the 12.000 fans at this sold out show and everybody was singing along with the songs.
During the show we had some special moments with Gene & Paul that we'll never forget!

Of course Gene spits fire during Firehouse and here's our video of it:

Also he did his bloody bass solo, flew up to the little platform above the stage to play God Of Thunder (back into the setlist this night) Tommy shooted off rockets during Shock Me and Paul flew over the crowd to the little stage to perform Psycho Circus instead of Love Gun! But Eric didn't do a drumsolo!
During Rock And Roll All Night they had new risers for Gene & Tommy as I've mentioned before. This time they weren't attached on the stage but on the rigs before/above the stage, so with this new set up the risers had a longer range and that looked so awesome!
Tonight it was also Eric's birthday and after Rock And Roll All Night he got a birthdaycake from the band and we all sang happy birthday to him!
They ended the show with Detroit Rock City and than it was all over, we were sweaty, hot, covered by confetti but feeling so excited, what a show, we had a blast!

This was the setlist:
Deuce, Shout It Out Loud, Lick It Up, I Love It Loud, Firehouse (Gene spits fire) Shock Me (Tommy guitarsolo) Flaming Youth, God Of Thunder (Gene spits blood & flies) Crazy Crazy Nights, Warmachine, Say Yeah, Psycho Circus (Paul flies to the little stage) Black Diamond & Rock And Roll All Night. Encores: I Was Made For Lovin' You & Detroit Rock City.
Here's a selection of the photo's we took from tonights show:

Every time we'll see KISS we got the chills and are so excited to see a show again, we cann't get enough of it. Especially on front row, it's like you're sucked into the show and nothing beats a KISS show, it's a experience!
We cann't wait to see them again in Frankfurt & Rotterdam soon...

Mooi verslag van Dortmund concert trouwens, ik verheug mij ook erg op volgende week.
Ik heb jullie met een kennisje van mij twee jaar geleden ontmoet bij Ace in Zoetermeer toen wij er ook erg vroeg waren, jullie waren de eerste twee en wij kwamen kort daarna.
