On may 24th it was time for us to see KISS live in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, our home country! This was for us our 3th and last show of their KISS World Europe 2017 Tour. We arrived around 1 PM at the Ahoy, a little tired because we came home late last night when we came back from their Frankfurt show.
We got settled in front of one of the doors and the waiting began. Because of knowing a lot of fans time flies and before we knew it the doors went open at 6:30. As soon we got through secrurity we run like hell to get, hopefully, a good spot. Once again we did, front row at the Demon's side!
Around 9 PM we heard the famous announcement: You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best. The Hottest Band In The World... KISS!!!
We were cheering, jumping, singing with every song they played. We wanted to make sure that we enjoyed every minute of it! We must say it was pretty cool when we saw Paul playing his Dutch Ibanez flag guitar, looked amazing!
Of course they did all the tricks; Gene spits fire & blood, flies during God Of Thunder, Tommy shoots of rockets and Paul flies to the little stage back in the venue. We loved the new front risers and the long range risers are amazing! The light show is fabulous in combination with the big screens and we still love the heat of the pyro's, especially during Lick It Up & God Of Thunder!
Gene spotted us again and we got his attention more than once. This time we got our hands on his water bottle that we missed at the show in Frankfurt!!! Our collection is complete now with his water bottle added next to his blood and rinsing cups, his towel and guitarpicks, we're so happy!
We had the feeling we were sucked into this show with all that was going on, like seeing them swett, laughing and especially during Rock And Roll All Night that we were covered under confetti! We loved every minute of this show and It always amaze us that they still dominate the stage after all those years! Nothing beats a KISS show! There's so much energy going around, Paul is still jumping, jiggleling, moving like he's 30! Gene is still the demon in every step of the way, his demon looks, waggle his tongue, drooling, spitting, he's almost human! Tommy running on stage with his guitar solo's and Eric's drumbeat kicks ass!
