I had the awesome honor of seeing you guys in Sault Ste. Marie.Thank you for an incredible show.It was so amazing.Everyone had such an awesome amount of energy.Every time I get to go to a show the excitement and anticipation grows more and more. I know that I am in for the the tome of my life. I was in the 5th row in Milwaukee a couple of years ago and thought nothing could top that experience but that Michigan show was OUTSTANDING!Thank you so much and I love you guys a ton. KISS is the best band ever!Thank for all the many years of the greatest music ever. With that being said, I was very sad to hear about your recent health problems Paul.Thank you for posting a message about how you are doing.It helps put me at ease a little now.I wish you all of the best and a super speedy recovery.You have a beautiful voice like no other in the world and you are a very special person.You have a huge amount of talent.We had planned to go to see you in Milwaukee for your solo tour and unfortunately it was cancelled.I would have loved to see you in the worst way but your health has got to be number one.I love you(even though I don\'t know you)so much and hope to see you back on stage as soon as you are totally healthy.GET WELL SOON!!!!
MEETS THE PHANTOM OF SOBOBA
Subject: KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF SOBOBA
From: justin on 07/28/2007
There is a certain amount of respect that one earns when called to duty and at last nights Soboba show that goes to Gene, Eric and Tommy. The show was destined to be a great success but with the unfortunate illness that frontman Paul Stanley endured it turned out to be a whole different night. I live in San Jacinto as was more than thrilled that KISS was playing no more than 7 miles from my house. I even upgraded to more expensive seats to ensure that the event was to be memorable, and that it was. It started like any other summer night in this one horse town, hot, stinky and forgetable. Then the circus rolled into town and brought with it a cast of characters that only hollywood could dream up. The arena itself is out in the middle of nothing and the casino that occupies the space is straight out of 1976. The people as well. But the KISS show was going to change all that for San Jacinto, instead it showed us that life happens to all of us and that we can either roll up into a ball and pretend it will go away or we can step up to the plate and give it our all. The show was over an hour late and when it finally looked to be on it\'s way Doc Mcgee came out to announce that the show was not what we came to see. Gene then came out and asked if we wanted to go home or just let the night play out unscripted. I\'m glad it played out unscripted because it let everyone there know that when handed a decision you have choices but the right one you make is the one that matters the most. So of course Gene, Eric and Tommy forged ahead and delivered what was one of the best shows I have seen from KISS. You got all the KISS treatments just minus Paul. And though without him you can see and hear what is missing the three of them still peformed as though he was there. Now last nights show could of really become a Spinal Tap moment and at one point I thought it did. Off to the side was a Paul Stanley look alike and I thought, \" Oh God its just like KISS Meets the Phantom they have a Paul robot standing in the wings but thankfully it didn\'t happen and Gene did all the singing. On a side note everyone now knows what a Gene Simmons solo show would be like. But aside from the horrible traffic, and the hot sticky backdrop of San Jacinto this was a night I\'m glad I was there to witness. And thank you Gene,Eric and Tommy for stepping up and giving us what we payed for, 3/4 of a KISS show that was 100% right on!!

My husband and I saw the KISS performance last night at Soboba Casino in San Jucinto. Gene, Eric and Tommy did a wonderful job of rocking the house . . . but Paul, you were sorely missed by both the band and the fans. Godspeed your recovery!! We\'re pulling for you.

Dear Gene, Eric, and Tommy, and especially Paul, Gene asked for us to write in about our Soboba show thoughts and get-well wishes for you, Paul. I can only think of telling you, my beautiful KISS, about what a significant night it was. To begin with, maybe I should say something, it might explain the reason *why* I write. You see, I have always, always, had to fight to have my KISS, all my life, and the fight has never ever stopped, from a family that found KISS \'satanic\', to jealous boyfriends and co-workers, etc. It culminated in loosing all of my worldly possessions back years ago, which included any KISS stuff I had left. Broke and no money then for higher education, I finally gave up internally on everything just before I met my husband (he is no KISS fan, either) and I attempted to just get anywhere by then. It is relevent to say that KISS and the Starchild never gave up on me through those years, because I saw you all in my dreams, and you helped me that way, believe me, but all of that is another story. Now, just this year, I was able to FINALLY see KISS again live at this Soboba Casino show, and even though they were pricey tickets, I purchased them, vowing to my skeptical husband that KISS would definitely be worth it. Indeed it was a sacrifice, as I was saving money this year for Nursing classes, as I want to become an LVN. Now, I was getting some odd vibes before the show but threw it all off to nerves. And you just didn\'t and didnít come out, while the vibes got odder...then Doc came out, and Gene...Gene, I was the gal in Paul\'s make-up, the oversize airbrush of Paul, and the purple feather boa, so I don\'t think you missed me, even though today I can furnish no photo and I was over on Tommy\'s side. Now, with the crushing news that Paul was hospitalized and with the symptoms and intervention you described...I am sorry, but my first impulse was to weep and really probably scream. However, Paul and you, Gene, Tommy, and Eric, and the audience wanted the show to go on. So of course, like the Generals of the KISS Army you are, you gave us the show. I then realized that, I had to do the show too, do everything I was gonna do at a KISS show, and be a KISS fan, be a Paul fan, because that is my function as a part of KISS, so I went on too. It was so touching Gene, to hear you say, over and over, how KISS is there because were are there. It was so wonderful to hear you call Paul your brother. Please forgive me Gene, I was still reeling emotionally when you were calling for Paul fans to sing...I think all I could have done was wonder up to you, lost, and forget the words under stress. When I was leaving at the end, the people around me told me that I needed to go sing, one fellow calling me \'Paul Stanley\' too, he said I needed to be there. I realized then that, at the Soboba concert, I and all other Paul fans were Paul that night, we all represented Paul there...that is intensely spiritual and meaningful for me, and I will never forget that, not ever. So to conclude my thoughts on the most awesome KISS show of my life, I thank you for going on and playing, and I thank you for letting me see KISS again for the first time in some 20+ years. Now, Paul, you get better! I will send you all the healing energies I can. And KISS, promise me, promise me! You will play me a Southern CA show again in the near future when Paul has fully recovered. I need you, KISS, and you never gave up on me, especially you, Starchild. Let\'s all continue our lives together, and take our places, side by side, against whatever destiny brings us. We are one. Laurette Havranek San Diego CA KISS Army since Ď76-í77

My Heroes, I have been a Kiss fan since the early 70\'s. Seen you about 10 times over the years. Gotta tell you the show at the Cisco conference tonight was one of the best. I thought initially that he abesence of Ace and Peter would be a terrible downer....and I do miss them...however, I saw you perform some songs that you hadn\'t done live since I saw you in the 80\'s. It dawned on me mid-show that since you weren\'t only the original band that all the terrific 80\'s stuff was now available to you. Paul - You are still the best Rock and Roll singer on the planet. I truly would place you as the best there has ever been. Gene - what can I say. You are the Demon my friend. \"God Gave Rock and Roll to you\" was a true highlight as was \"Lick it up.\" Paul - Would you consider ever adding \"Forever\" back into the playlist. This is your song man. This is a Rock Anthem that deserves to be heard in the arena again. We need a reason to raise our lighters in the air and to celebrate true royalty at work on the Mic. Please consider it. Gene - How about \"Christine Sixteen?\" Great song for you my man. Thanks for a wonderful show. Thanks for singing \"Do You love me,\" and don\'t ever stop singing \"Love Gun.\" A truly satisfied and grateful fan.b

KISS in Cadott was phenomenal. It was my seventh KISS show and right up there with the best of them. I really loved the long set list and the impressive song selection, including classics that I\'ve never seen you do before. The poll on KISSonline was a great idea, but you guys didn\'t stop there. You gave us a few other gems as well and I truly thank you for that. I had to let you know that you were exceptionally fresh that night. I can\'t quite explain what it was, but \"fresh\" seems to be the best word that I can think of. I don\'t know if you were in a great mood about something or loving the weather or what, but Gene Simmons was at his best and then some in Cadott. Thank you for coming out and doing a few shows this year. I drove six hours and it was completely worth it. As always, I look forward to what KISS has in store for the future. Thanks for everything, Mike Walsh

Dear Gene, I saw you this weekend in Cadott, Wisconsin for the first time, and I definitely don\'t want that to be the last! Does KISS have any future tours planned, or any stops in the Minnesota area? -Kayla PS: I\'m the weird girl that had you sign her shoes at the hotel and said that we (my friend and I) tried to bring you a muffin, but messed up the room numbers. :)
HELLO FROM CANADA

From: Dean McMcLean on 07/25/2007
Hello from Canada; Today I celebrate the 30th anniversary of my first KISS concert. It was Sunday July 24th, 1977 at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Cheap Trick was the opening act ( I seen Cheap Trick this past January and even they mentioned that gig ). To commemorate this anniversary, I\'ve been listening to ALIVE & ALIVE II all day. Oh... The good times we\'ve had together going back to the 8-track (mid 70\'s) player in the car to surround theatre in the \"now\", KISS has always been a staple in my life. A special thanks to YOU and PAUL for keeping it together for so long. I tip my glass of milk to another 30 years. Sincerely, Dean Nanaimo B.C. Canada

Tommy, it was truly a pleasure meeting you and seeing you rock the house with the god give talent you\'ve been blessed with. You are truly a fan favourite not only because of your talent but the easy approachable personality you have a person. It was great to not only be apart of that but see you take the time with each fan you met along the way.
