Our KISS Meet & Greet Experience in Berlin & Report on Hamburg & Leipzig!


After a 5 hours drive by car we arrived at our hotel in Hamburg on june 2th. After we've checked in we went to the O2 Arena. Lucky enough there were not many fans in line waiting. Talked to fans as we were waiting untill the doors went open and as soon they did we took a sprint to the stage and...yes we did it again, front row on Gene's side!

Around 9:15 PM it was time for our band KISS and as 2 days before @ Rock Im Revier we enjoyed every minute of it.
This time the whole stage was set up and indeed it was the same as we saw in Las Vegas last year, a great stage with big screens on, behind and on the top, great light show and of course many bombs and pyro's, we could feel the heat of them were we stood!
The band played tight and sounded great! They played the same set as Rock Im Revier but it didn't matter to us, we cann't get enough, lol. Still got chills when Gene gives us his demon look! The arena was almost sold out and the vibe was good. KISS played for 100 minutes and before we knew it, show #2 was over. After the show we got a drink with some fellow Dutch fans and had a great time.

Next up was Berlin, we arrived at our hotel around 2 PM, checked in and relaxed a bit, enough time for a relax diner and sightseeing. We had time because it was a special day for us! We celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary with a Meet & Greet with KISS! What can we say about it? It's always awesome to meet the band and we had blast doing it and are so happy with our photo's!!!


When we got back in the venue we decided to take a spot @ the small stage, were Paul will come over during Love Gun. A moment later we saw Shannon walking by and she had a place on the special stage right in front of us. We waved to her and she said hello to us. Before we knew it, it was time for KISS to hit the stage.
With a spot from the middle of the field, we had a different view on the stage we don't see often, lol. Now we could see how the stage and light show looks from here and we must say, it looked awesome and we enjoyed the show even from this spot! Gene didn't fly during God Of Thunder because of technical problems, but Paul flew to us at the small stage during Love Gun and we had a great view at him!
Again the show was great and we had a good time! Here's a video of Parasite...

Next up, show #4, Leipzig. When we arrived at the arena we saw that there were 2 entries, a west and east entry. Which would we choose? We went for the east entry and it was the right choice because fewer people were waiting there. This arena was smaller that the O2's and we hoped for a good spot. Lucky enough we did, front row @ Tommy's side! We saw Doc walking by a few times and Danny aswell who welcomed us to the show.

Before we knew it, much earlier as we expected, @ 8:45 PM it was party time again! And from the start to end there was a awesome vibe, this was the best show we saw so far! Everyone was jumping, singing along with each song, incredible to be there!
We had a blast and loved every minute of it, especially when Paul came over and was right in front of us! He recognized us and pointed to us, this was such a special moment that we'll never forget!
This was the setlist for all 3 shows:
Detroit Rock City, Deuce, Psycho Circus, Creatures of the Night, I Love It Loud, War Machine (Gene spits fire) Do You Love Me, Hell or Hallelujah, Calling Dr. Love, Lick It Up, (Bass Solo, Gene spits blood and flies) God of Thunder, Parasite, Love Gun, Black Diamond. Encore: Shout It Out Loud, I Was Made for Lovin' You & Rock and Roll All Nite.
We had a incredible time at the shows and are in such a KISS mode that we would go to more shows if we could. Can we wait 2 more weeks to see them in Amsterdam again? We have too!
Next up: Ace Frehley in Amsterdam!
Here's a selection of photo's from the 3 shows, enjoy...

Hans said...

Weet iemand wanneer de verkoop voor graspop begint?

Wob said...

@ Hans, begin December, dus elk moment.

Erwin Stanley said...

Is KISS nu op 19 of 20 juni headliner bij graspop? Ik wil een dagkaart kopen........Andere headliner zoals SlipKnot is het ook nog niet duidelijk voor deze datums.

Rockhead said...

@ Erwin; Op KISSonline staat dat KISS de 19 juni op Graspop speelt. Maar Graspop heeft nog geen dagindeling op hun site staan en ik wacht daar ook nog op...

Erwin Stanley said...

@Rockhead, Deze mail kreeg ik vandaag:

Dag Erwin

Bedankt voor je mailtje. We wachten nog op enkele grote(re) namen om de
dagindeling bekend te maken, dus nog even geduld.
Uiteraard proberen we zo snel mogelijk aan jullie te laten weten wie
welke dag speelt.

(maar een hint alvast: http://www.kissonline.com/tour):)

Metalen groeten \m/
GMM Team

Rockhead said...

@ Erwin; Bedankt voor je bericht, dus we kunnen er vanuit gaan dat KISS op de 19e op Graspop speelt...

Erin said...

You guys are so fortunate to be able to indulge in your passion for KISS to the degree that you do, so jealous.

Hans said...

Graspop tickets in de pocket

Erwin Stanley said...

Kaarten inmiddels besteld!! Ik neem aan dat ze de vrijdag afsluiten.

Rockhead said...

@ Erwin; Daar ga ik ook van uit, zal de kaarten binnenkort ook kopen...

Hans said...

Zie jullie op graspop!

Kyle said...

You're lucky, 5 shows, that's bad ass!

Wob said...

Yes, kaarten voor Parijs, Graspop en nu ook voor Barcelona. Dat wordt een druk weekje, maar vast de moeite waard.

Erwin Stanley said...

WTF marilyn manson (main stage 2) sluit de vrijdag af na KISS (main stage 1) op GMM!!?? Dat is toch geen headliner waardige band.

Rockhead said...

Ik dacht dat KISS de vrijdag afsluit?

Judy said...

Another show added. You guys are so fortunate to be able to indulge in your passion for KISS! Wished I could.

Hans said...

Nog een show erbij, ja hoor!

Leo said...

Ik ga naar Parijs, Amsterdam en Graspop en natuurlijk Ace in de boerderij!

Erwin Stanley said...

KISS speelt op stage 1 van 22.30 tot 0.00. Marylin Manson op stage 2 van 0.05 tot 1.30

Rockhead said...

@ Erwin Stanley; Waar heb je die tijden gezien?

Erwin Stanley said...

@Rockhead; de tijden staan op de GMM site.

Rockhead said...

@ Erwin Stanley; Ja ik heb het gezien, je zou toch denken dat KISS de dag zou afsluiten? Maar MM hoeven we niet perse te zien, zijn we lekker op tijd thuis...

Erwin Stanley said...

@ Rockhead; Inderdaad na KISS naar huis!

Peter said...

Zooooo super verslag en mooie foto. Gaaf dat jullie de Meet en Greet hebben gedaan. Gefeliciteerd nog met jullie 5 jarige huwelijk. Hooi Edith

Frans said...

Wow wat een gave meet en greet foto's weer, ik ben zo jaloers op jullie, maar gun het jullie.
Ik hoop ooit een meet en greet met Kiss te doen, wilde het in Amsterdam doen, maar lukte niet.
Daarom wel een meet en greet met Ace in Zoetermeer! Kan niet wachten.

Denise said...

Love reading your report, great pics again! Awesome M&G photo's, love them, beautifull.
You rock!

Johan said...

Mooie meet en greet foto's van jullie, de hoeveelste is het van jullie?

Rockhead said...

@ Edith; Bedankt voor je felicitaties! En ja de Meet & Greet was erg gaaf! we zijn zeer blij met de foto's!

Anonymous said...

Gave meet en greet foto's, ik heb mijn meet en greet donderdag, ben zo nerveus, ik hoop dat mijn foto's niet zo mooi gaan worden als die van jullie, nog tips?

Marc said...

Great pics of you meeting Kiss, fantastic! I imagine you both had a great time with all those Kiss shows in Europe, a copple of months till I see them in Australia!

Ken said...

I've loved reading your review, fantastic meet and greet photo of you and the band, love it. Enjoyed your live pics too!

Peter said...

Die meet en greet foto's zijn echt te gek hoor, mooi man!

Alex said...

Mijn vrienden tipten mij over jullie Kiss blog, man wat kan ik zeggen dan 1 van de beste fan sites die ik ben tegen gekomen op het net! Klasse hoor!
Gave Kiss collectie ook en dan nog die meet en greet van jullie, geweldig!
Top blog en enorme Kiss fans, hulde hulde, hulde!!!

Christian said...

Mir hat es in Leipzig super gefallen. Die Show hatte alles, was ich von einer KISS-Show erwarte. Vorher hatte ich auch Angst, enttäuscht zu werden. Eine neue Bühne, einige neue Finessen eingebaut, was will man mehr?! Und die Jungs geben noch immer alles.

Uwe said...

Ja die show in Berlin und Leipzig waren super. Schade das die Deutschland shows diesem jahr abgesagt sind.
