Kiss. Stadium, Malmo, 6.13

As much as we wanted to see a dignified Sweden rock finale, we never got it from Guns N 'Roses. Less than 24 hours after Axl Rose left his audience with a sense of emptiness in their bodies, many, many people were finally swept into that much-longed-for rock dream when the KISS circus roared in to Malmo Stadium.

The band's intro movie on the big screens already set the bar: a Gene Simmons of Godzilla-size stomping around in a big city is a pretty good metaphor for the band as phenomenon. Subtle they are not, but you can not possibly take your eyes or ears off of them.

Whether it is Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer or Arne Hegerfors and the Dalai Lama who hide behind Catman and Spaceman makeup doesn't interest us -- Kiss is a brand and a lifestyle, where space and content are the same thing. The band delivered a super-choreographed spectacle and it felt as if four superheroes were on the scene.

To be honest, is there anyone who has not fantasized about being Gene Simmons for a day, though for different reasons now than when we were young? As the intro to the beefy "I Love It Loud" played, he lit up in neon green, gurgled blood, the bass roared and he flew up to a platform above the stage. Parents who were smart enough to take their ten year old said that Gene turned him into a lifetime member of the Kiss Army tonight.

BACKSTAGE IN STOCKHOLM
AFTON BLADET
Here's a humorous interview from Swedish television filmed before KISS' Stockholm show last night! The guys have a lot of fun with the interviewer's questions. Pay attention to their answers when asked "Are you writing songs together right now?" and Eric and Tommy's answer to "How are Paul and Gene as 'employees?'" Classic!

GETTING YOUR MONEY'S WORTH
CONNECTICUT POST
By Sean Spillane

Here's an interesting quote the ever-modest Kiss singer-guitarist Paul Stanley gave to Reuters about the Kiss tour:

"The bands that have to worry about the recession are the ones who don't give their money's worth to the audience. If you come to see us, your money will blind you and deafen you and pummel you."
