KISS in Melbourne – 40th Anniversary World Tour

KISS back in makeup and on stage with their 40th Anniversary World Tour finally made it to Melbourne at the Rod Laver Arena last Friday night.

Kerrie bought us tickets for our 20th Wedding Anniversary to see KISS and what a great concert it was to see them back in makeup and doing all their classics.

I last saw them on their KISS Alive World tour back in 1997. That tour had all four of the original band members but they were without makeup. To see them back in makeup and full costume and with Gene Simmons in full flight was great as I had not been able to see them back in the 80’s at their peak.

From the opening when the KISS battle cry booms out over the speakers…”You wanted the best, you got the best. The hottest band in the world… KISS!” to the closing with Rock and Roll All Nite this was a concert of high energy, constant explosions and unparalleled entertainment.

Gene’s bass solo and spitting blood to God of Thunder and Paul’s partial acoustic of Shandi before breaking into Shout It Out Loud were just two of many highlights.
