KISS Live In Mannheim 10-6-2008

KISS Live In Mannheim:

This was my second show I attended of this Euro tour. Together with Marina (who I did the Meet & Greet with in Oberhausen) we saw I awesome show again, we were right in front of the left side of  the stage and had a great view of everything that happened, like that Gene was brushing his hair several times, lol. Paul’s voice sounded great to me and he was smiling all the time, the guys had a great time. They played the same setlist as the nights before. With standing on the left side, very close to the confetti cannons, when they went off, oh man it was as everything was white, this was so cool.  I had a great time and was back in my KISS rush again, caused by this follow up after our Meet & Greet in Oberhausen…

Marina & me had our M&G photo’s with us and we the only reason we did that is because we wanted to get them signed by KISS So, only to figure out how we could get those 2 pics to KISS So the only one who could help me was Doc or Dean, it all depends wich one I would see first, so it was Dean and we had the to go for a Soundcheck at the last moment, but when we talked about it with Dean he said all Soundchecks were now official cancelled. So I had to come up with another plan right now.

So I waited till everyone had their M&G instructions and went to Dean again, simply asked him if he could do anything for us, explained to him that we did a M&G with KISS in Oberhausen on may 9th. He asked us to show him the pics, so we did and to our big suprise he took them with him and said to us that he would do his best for us We had to look for him after the M&G session this night or come over to him next day in Oberhausen (told him that I was there too) So we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. Because of the good spots right before the stage that night in Oberhausen we didn’t leave to find Dean, but I would find him the day after in Oberhausen.

Almost at the end of the show we saw Dean taking pics at the front of the stage, he saw us and waved to us. Later that night he came to us with a envelop containing our pictures, and said to us that KISS did sign them for us So, after the show we looked at the signed pics (see it on my site, as it’s 1 of the headphoto’s) and could not believe how cool they looked now signed by Gene, Paul, Eric & Tommy This was for sure the topping on the cake, we can thank Dean not enough to do this for us!

They played over 2 hours long and the venue was almost sold out. Merchandise was the same. I also picked up my Live CD from the show and recordings are great! So, here are the photo’s, enjoy…

The Starchild in action in Mannheim…

Here’s the Demon:

Here are Eric & Tommy…

KISS Live In Oberhausen 2: 

The day after Mannheim I travelled to Oberhausen, to see them for the third time. It was KISS second date in Oberhausen. This time I had seat ticket right at the right side of the stage with a great view. This emotional show was great again, KISS played over 2 hours and did a real cool version of 100.000 Years. Also Gene almost take a fall on stage! Paul tried to make this "night 2"better as "night 1" with his interacting with the crowd. They where in good spirit again and the crowd was jumping from the start and almost all the sitting people were standing throughout the whole show! The venue was almost sold out. The setlist was the same. Picked up my Live CD and also bought a cool bootleg T-shirt, with on the back all the cities with dates.

12 June 2008 at 15:15 Hoi, ik was gisteren ook in oberhausen. Het was echt te gek. Ik stond naast het b podium waar Paul love gun speelde. Ik vind de band nu echt retestrak spelen en ze hebben er plezier in. Ze speelden vol overgave. Trouwens erg mooie zaal in oberhausen. Ik ben benieuwd wat ze volgend jaar gaan doen als ze terugkomen.
