Kiss -- Virginia Beach, VA -- July 21st, 2012

Same sets as Bristow last night.

Scored my ticket off Craigslist at the last minute. 11th row center behind the orchestra section for $50. It rained like hell yesterday so the trek to and inside the venue was a nasty slog. Had to park in a grassy field that had turned completely to muck. Saw a number of cars stuck on the way out. Got there just as the first Motley song started (thanks to 2 accidents, one of which was in the line to park your car).

Don't know how to feel about Crue. Vince sounded horrible, they all looked like douches, the girls and the constant f this, sex that were over-the-top and kinda stupid, some of their music is horrible, yet I was entertained. their stage is pretty cool and a few songs like Shout at the Devil are decent. Tommy's drum solo was musically the worst shit I've ever heard but visually pretty cool. At the end of the day I may think they're idiots but they did entertain me.

Kiss was great as always. Paul sounded much better than in 2010 and I really enjoyed War Machine and God of Thunder. Tommy seemed to really be on it last night. I was pretty impressed with his performance. The pyro at the end of their set was pretty crazy even for them. I was definitely left wanting more, can't wait for their own tour next time.

Here's a rant though. I didn't see The Treatment but I saw them open for Alice Cooper in Germany. They are nothing special at all. They are not bringing people in and they are not a reason someone would buy a ticket. So why are they here? If they weren't on this tour then Motley could start at 7 and play till 8:45 and Kiss could go 9:15 to 11. Or even 7:30 to 9 and 9:30 ton 11. Complete waste of time to have them play, especially since Kiss has had to go past curfew both shows so far (this one ended at about 11:15).

All in all a very fun night, can't beat a 160 dollar ticket for 50.
