|Another Kiss show
|Concerts by Year
|< Previous Kiss show - Geneva
|Next: Kiss show - Graspop >
June 17 2008 was a very exciting day.
|And anyway, a KISS concert is always a big party and a huge show, so I guess that even when you see KISS once a year, you get really excited when the next concert comes.
Tonight's show was no exception. KISS destroyed, burned and demolished Bercy Arena in Paris.
|I don't even know if there was an opening act.
When I got into the venue I just had the time to drink a beer with Brian Dixon from Cathedral and lights went down...
There was a huge courtain withe the KISS logo covering the stage, the song Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who was airing, and then a voice roared "Alright Paris... You wanted the Best, You Got The Best! The Hottest Band In The World... KIIIIISSS!!!"
How can you stand still when you live a moment like this??
But quite strange, the 17 000 capacity Bercy Arena wasn't sold-out on that night.
This was the first show I saw with Tommy Thayer on guitars.
About Eric Singer... Well, there I really felt a difference.
Peter Criss is the original Cat character, a founding member of KISS. But Eric Singer has a lot more of feeling and an incredible drumming style.
About the show, it was just amazing. Everything you can expect from KISS was there.
As for Paul, well, he's a complete showman. He flew over the crowd to sing Love Gun from a small stage in the middle of Bercy's audience. He broke his guitar into pieces by the end of the show and he kept talking to the people during the whole concert.
In a word, it was a perfect concert.
