BLISTERING 2 HOUR + SHOW!
WOW! What a way to open their Alive 35 European Tour! KISS just destroyed Oberhausen Arena with a blistering 2 hour and 17 minute set that featured the complete ALIVE album and a six song encore! From the opening of 'Deuce' to the ending of 'Detroit Rock City', KISS grabbed the audience by the throat and never let go.
The band's performance was a true team effort and everyone was on top of their game! Paul danced, pranced and belted out vocals like it was 1975. Gene was, to put it simply, the DEMON - menacing on both bass and vocals. Eric pounded the drums, sang lead on 'Nothin' To Lose' & 'Black Diamond' and also sang along with Gene on several other songs. Tommy blazed his way through lead after lead, as well as an awesome solo complete with rocket shooting special effects.
KISS is always powerful and energetic, but tonight they some how turned it up a notch! And to think, this was just the first show..can't wait for Munich!
