For a rock ‘n’ roll fan, a Kiss concert is about as close as you can get to a sure thing in live music. That’s why it was no surprise that the legendary foursome absolutely rocked the house at the Molson Amphitheatre on Friday night with their patented blend of pyrotechnic spectacle and explosive sound.

While Justin Bieber was on stage just a few blocks away for the second of his two all-sizzle, no-steak performances at the ACC, Gene Simmons and co. served up a reminder that you can still have style without sacrificing substance. Yes, Gene took flight on several occasions with the assistance of a harness, and flashy sparks put an exclamation mark the band’s 19-song set. But there was also no shortage of awe-inspiring guitar riffs and even a few sit-up-and-take-notice high notes from the aging rock gods.

“Maawn-tree-aaawl!” howled Paul Stanley in the arena phrasing and pronunciation he coined. “I wanna come out there and be with yew!”

Who knew if he meant it in the Biblical sense, but this was Kiss, so as likely as not. And 8,500 in the Bell Centre were going to feel Paul and the fire and the blood and the flying and the bombs that still herald rock’s Circus Maximus on their regular rotation through the city and country and world’s venues.

First, ladies and gentlemen, rest easy in your beds – the future of Kiss is assured, if we can judge by the truly impressive amount of pre-schoolers face-painted and hauled into the rink by parents who’d been Kissed one too many times but were passing on the torch. Little Demons and Starchildren, little Aces and Catmen, goggle-eyed at what they were about to experience.

Forty-some years, y’all. Psycho Circus opened with the first bombing sally, and Gene in his suit of metal mail, and Tommy Thayer licking out in his Ace gear, and Paul Stanley in his black flamingo-feathers, all descending atop an articulated spider-stage, with screens bathing 17,000 retinae in a kaleidoscope of KISS imagery. Forty-some years of Shout It Out Loud anchoring the early part of the set with the first of a half-dozen ’70s riffs that have outlasted Jann Wenner’s hatred and become post-ironic standards for – what – three generations?

The ever-limber Stanley took many knee-drops through the likes of Hell or Hallelujah, from the band’s solid Monster album. Backwards and in platforms with a Firebird-ish guitar – that’s Paul as Gene blows fire in War Machine and licks his own fretboard. And here’s Thayer, given the mic for Shock Me/Outta This World and a bit of O Canada in the solo to re-energize the show.
