First of all I want to send my best wishes to Paul...get well soon.
I have been a KISS fan since day 1. There was always an excuse as to why I could never make a live show close to our home in western Canada..I never made it, and never thought I would.
It was a dream come true the day my son told me he absolutely loved the rockband KISS, that was 10 years ago. What great times we have listening to the music, discussing the band and watching the dvd\'s...I told Travis (about 4 years ago), If KISS ever played a show anywhere in western Canada or USA, I would take him. What an amazing day when he went to his favorite website (KISSonline.com) and found announcement for a show in southern California...and it\'s an all ages show! We have to go!
10 am Monday morning the tickets go on sale, I\'m on the phone, he is on the web...WE HAD TO GET TICKETS. We got them 20 rows back right in front of Gene! Now the planning of the trip, the flights the hotels, the 3000 miles! It\'s all set, WERE GOING TO SEE KISS!
Needless to say, we were at the show in Sabobo on Friday night. Travis and I in full face makeup, he as Gene and I was Paul. You can\'t imagine the concern and disapointment when Gene came out and told us of Pauls heart concerns. All this way and no show?
Oh YA! There was a show! Gene, Tommy and Eric put on a show of a lifetime, It ROCKED. Best show of my life, I can only imagine what it would have been like with Paul playing and singing his songs. I just hope Travis and I have the chance to see another KISS show together. What a fabulous thing to share with my son...we will never forget it. Thanks guys. And Paul, get well soon...we look forward to seeing you, and the the rest of the band...soon?
