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