KISS Live In Iffezheim!


On saterday july 6th we saw KISS live in Iffezheim, Germany!
After a 4 hours drive by car we arrived around 11:30 AM at the galopprennbahn, were the show would take place. It was a horse racing track and a little bit strange location for a show. Another hot and sunny day and while we spend our time with other fans we were counting down the hours till the doors went open. We notice that a lot of fans decided, kind of last minute, to buy tickets for this show.

The doors went open at 6:30 PM and this time it all went very slowly till we passed the secrurity and finally reached the front of stage area, but lucky enough we managed to get first row and we were so happy.

At 9:10 PM it was time for the Hottest Band In The World...KISS! With a lot of smoke, pyro & bombs KISS came down on their platforms to the stage and started the show with Detroit Rock City! From this moment on it was party time, we had such a great desire in this show and the band sounded awesome. Paul recognized us again and when Tommy saw us he pointed to us and throw us a guitarpick, so cool!



Next up was Deuce, here's our video:

A couple of times we were to see on the big screen, as it was during Heaven's On Fire!

Always a great moment in the show is when Gene spit fire during I Love It Loud. This time we could feel the pyro so intense when they played Lick It Up, it was so close to us and so hot, but we liked it all, lol. Next up was Calling Dr. Love and we feeled some rain drops on us and when I looked up to the sky I saw some dark clouds, but some rain wouldn't not matter to us, we had a rock and roll party going on right now. But with the end of Calling Dr. Love Paul said: "we have to stop the show!" and the band was called of stage by their manager Doc McGee and suddenly it all was over! It was really a abrupt End Of The Road!

We had to clear the field and had to take shelter at the covered seat erea. It started to rain with thunder and lighting. The word was that the show was temporarily interrupted and probely would resumed as soon as this bad weather would be over. But unfortunately only 30 minutes later the show was definitive cancelled! We knew we were part of another page in KISStory today because we never heard that KISS had not finished their show in the past ever! We were feeling numb, it was so unreal to us that this show came to such a end we never ever could have expected.

This was the setlist: Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud, Deuce, Say Yeah, I Love It Loud, Heaven's On Fire, War Machine (Gene breathes fire) Lick It Up & Calling Dr. Love.
Here's a selection of our photo's from this show:


What more can we say about this show? We had such a amazing time with KISS at this show as long as it lasted...

KISS Live In Amsterdam!


On tuesday june 25th we saw KISS live in Amsterdam ! It was a our third show of the End Of The Road World Tour.
It was a very hot day and when we arrived @ the Ziggo Dome we were glad that there was some shadow, so that we could stay out the sun. All we had to do is waiting till the doors went open and we spend the time talking to other fans.

At 6:30 PM the doors went open and as always we hope to get a good spot at this show. As soon we got in we ran as fast we could and we were so happy to be at first row between Paul & Tommy !
This was our first indoor show and this time we'll get the full show with all the effects. Because it was a indoor show there wouldn't be any daylight involved, as it was the case during their outdoor stadion shows like in Essen.

A copple minutes after 9 PM it was time for our favorite band in the world... KISS!
As soon as the curtain came down, Gene, Paul & Tommy came down to the stage on their platforms surrounded with a lot of pyro, bombs and smoke, with Eric behind his drumkit coming down behind them!
From that moment on the place went nuts and it was party time. During I Love It Loud Paul came over to the right side of the stage and as soon as he saw us he waved and pointed to us, that was such a special moment for us we'll never forget!
Next up was Heaven's On Fire, here's our video:

Another special moment for us was that Gene recognized us again during the show! The band had fun to play and sounded great.
Here's our video of Calling Dr. Love:

It was cool to see us on the big screen during 100.000 Years.

Also a great moment was when Gene stood next to a smoke-breathing Sam and to see Gene & Tommy went up on the risers on the stage (they used those only at the end of the show at the outdoor shows)
Always a favorite part of the show is Gene's bloody bass-solo. Right at the moment when he throw up "blood" we couldn't see a thing, they used a lot more smoke as usual, it was thick and hot and we think they had still the smoke diffusers programmed on outdoor shows, lol.
We were lucky enough to catch some guitarpics during the show!


Beth was the first encore and this time the piano with Eric behind it came up from under the stage! So cool to see. Next up was Crazy Crazy Nights with the balloons coming down on the crowd from the ceiling (instead of throwing to the crowd from the front of the stage by the crew) and we were lucky to get our hands on one of them!



They ended their show with of course Rock And Roll All Night with a lot of confetti, bombs, pyro and smoke. Gene & Tommy went up high above the crowd on the arm risers with Paul smashing his guitar. Here's our video:

Than it was all over, we were sweaty, hot, covered by confetti but feeling so excited, what a show, we had a blast at this sold out show!
Will this be the last KISS show ever in The Netherlands? We hope not...

This was the setlist: Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud, Deuce, Say Yeah, I Love It Loud, Heaven's On Fire, War Machine (Gene breathes fire) Lick It Up, Calling Dr. Love, 100,000 Years (with Eric's drum solo) Cold Gin (with Tommy's guitar solo) God Of Thunder (with Gene's bass solo) Psycho Circus, Let Me Go, Rock & Roll (with jam solo) Love Gun (Paul flying to stage) I Was Made For Lovin' You & Black Diamond. Encore: Beth (Eric on piano) Crazy Crazy Nights & Rock And Roll All Nite.
Here's a selection of our photo's from this show:

We witness a great show, we were part of another awesome experience!

Our KISS Meet & Greet Experience @ Graspop!!!


On june 23th we had our KISS Meet & Greet Experience @ Graspop festival in Belgium!!! We're so happy with our awesome photo's!

As soon when the band saw us they recognized us and that's so cool!

We had such a great time with the band backstage!
A special big thank you for the people who made this possible for us, you know who you are...

The Show:

After this awesome experience we got back to the festival field and just 15 minutes after we saw them backstage we heard the famous announcement: You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best, The Hottest Band In The World...KISS!
This time the show started around 11 PM so it was complete dark, then their show in Essen 3 weeks ago when they started at 9, so all the effects and lightshow did better justice to the show.
We were on second row and had such a fabulous time and the band sounded great. Also they used a lot more smoke and pyro, there was pyro in front of the stage and also around the field. It was a very hot day and with all that extra pyro going off it was Hotter Than Hell!
Everytime we see a KISS show we want to see them more, lol. Always a blast to be at a KISS show!

This was the setlist: Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud, Deuce, Say Yeah, I Love It Loud, Heaven's On Fire, War Machine (Gene breathes fire) Lick It Up, Calling Dr. Love, 100,000 Years (with Eric's drum solo) Cold Gin (with Tommy's guitar solo) God Of Thunder (with Gene's bass solo) Psycho Circus, Let Me Go, Rock & Roll (with jam solo) Love Gun (Paul flying to stage) I Was Made For Lovin' You & Black Diamond. Encore: Beth (Eric on piano) Crazy Crazy Nights & Rock and Roll All Nite.

Here's a selection of our photo's from this show:

KISS Live In Essen!!!


We arrived around 11 AM at the Stadion in Essen (Germany) for our first show of the KISS End Of The Road World Tour!
It was Hotter Than Hell that sunday june 2th, so Hot In the Shade, lol. There were about 25 fans waiting and we knew a lot of them, so passing time was no problem, we had a lot to talk about.

Around 5 PM we were let in to the stadion erea and got to the gates were we've to wait untill 6 PM when te big gates went open. We had front of the stage tickets and as soon as we got in we run to the stage but had to show our tickets again and got a wristband before we got into the front block for the stage. But we managed to get front row, and were so happy with this after hours of waiting in the hot sun!


It was so cool that they sell 3 different KISS Mugs with beer, I'm not a beer drinker, but of course we bought those mugs.

At 8 PM it was time for the support act, this time it wasn't no band, but a painter David Garibaldi who has a very cool way of painting. We liked his performance.

A copple of minutes for 9 PM it was time for the Hottest Band In The World...KISS!
As soon the curtain was gone, we saw Gene, Paul & Tommy coming down each 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 Detroit Rock City! Here's our video:

The stage had some new elements, 11 kind of ufo-lights/platforms (less than in the US) a big screen at the back of the stage and Sam The Serpent was back! Those ufo lights/platforms were used during the whole show with special effects and brought a new demension to the show. Even it was a show outside we could the feel the heat of the pyro's and that was so cool.
KISS played tight and sounded great! There was a great vibe amoung the 20.000 fans inside the stadion. During the show we had cool interactions with Gene & Paul that's always special to us!

When it was time for Gene's solo, he stood on the middle ufo platform to do his bloody bass solo and than the whole platform went up above the stage and he performe his signature song God Of Thunder.
Here's our video of it:

Of course all the other elements were in the show, Eric did his drumsolo on the riser, Tommy shooted off rockets during his guitarsolo and letting some ufo platforms exploding and of course Paul flew over the crowd to the little stage to perform Love Gun & I Was Made For Lovin' You!
Here's our little clip of ot:
During Let Me Go, Rock & Roll there was also a little jam between Paul & Tommy and than Gene would show off his jam with Paul & Tommy joining in. Of course there were a lot of pyro's, smoke & flames that makes a show a KISS show.
The first encore was Beth with Eric behind the piano and they ended the show with Rock And Roll All Night with Gene & Tommy not on the big arms risers (they only use them at the indoor shows) but on risers that only went up, with a lot of confetti and pyro going off!
Than it was all over, we were sweaty, hot, covered by confetti but feeling so excited, what a show, we had a blast! We knew this wasn't our final show ever yet, we've a few more ahead of us...

This was the setlist: Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud, Deuce, Say Yeah, I Love It Loud, Heaven's On Fire, War Machine (Gene breathes fire) Lick It Up, Calling Dr. Love, 100,000 Years (with Eric's drum solo) Cold Gin (with Tommy's guitar solo) God Of Thunder (with Gene's bass solo) Psycho Circus, Let Me Go, Rock & Roll (with jam solo) Love Gun (Paul flying to stage) I Was Made For Lovin' You & Black Diamond. Encore: Beth (Eric on piano) Crazy Crazy Nights & Rock and Roll All Nite.

Here's a selection of our photo's from this 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!
