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...
