KISS -- West Valley, UT -- June 23rd, 2014

Source: setlist.fm

First thing I want to say is that I did NOT go to this show, I'm just posting this for everyone to see what the sets are gonna be looking like for this tour. Apparently the opening band doesn't go on until 7, which is freaking stupid. If you're gonna have an opening band but them on at about 6:30 at the latest, but they really shouldn't have an opening band for this tour. If it was just KISS or just DL, then by all means, have a small opening act, but not for this. Anyway, here are the sets (hour and fifteen minutes each):

Def Leppard:
We Won't Get Fooled Again (The Who song)
1.Let It Go
2.Rocket
3.Animal
4.Foolin'
5.Love Bites
6.Let's Get Rocked
7.Two Steps Behind
8.Bringin' On The Heartbreak (acoustic)
9.Switch 625
10.Hysteria
11.Armageddon It
12.Pour Some Sugar On Me
Encore:
13.Rock Of Ages
14.Photograph

Gotta say, disappointed, but pretty much what I was expecting. No Stagefright , but at least they are doing 14 songs instead of 12 (like I was expecting) and opening with Let It Go. Photograph also is good to see as a closer instead of Rock Of Ages, but still not as good as Let's Get Rocked. And one more thing, THROW OUT TWO STEPS BEHIND!

Kiss:
1.King Of The Night Time World ()
2.Cold Gin
3.War Machine
4.Hide Your Heart ()
5.Christine Sixteen ()
6.Shout It Out Loud
7.I Love It Loud
8.Makin' Love ()
9.Psycho Circus ()
10.Let Me Go, Rock N' Roll ()
11.Black Diamond
Encore:
12.Detroit Rock City
13.Rock And Roll All Nite

Now there we go! That's how you do a set! 7 songs I haven't seen live before and three complete surprises! My jaw dropped for a full minute (no seriously, not joking) when I saw Hide Your Heart. That alone is worth the price of admission if they keep it in the set. Setlist wise, they put DL to shame. I heard an interview with Joe Elliot saying that they and KISS were going to perform their "ultimate sets full of nothing but hits" and that they weren't going to be performing songs like Die Hard The Hunter because "nobody probably has ever heard them". Well if they don't know them, freaking play it anyway and make them know it by the end of the night. I see three "hits" in that KISS set, Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud, and RARAN. Yea Joe, you are the only one who thinks you have to play every single one of your hits and nothing else. Gotta say I'm kinda bummed that there is no Love Gun, Crazy Crazy Nights, or God Gave Rock & Roll To You II though. Not sure if they are planning on rotating songs, but if they are PLEASE DON'T GET RID OF HIDE YOUR HEART!

Opening with Let It Go is cool, and I agree pull Two Steps Behind, it blows.

The Kiss set is much different than I thought so that's cool. People will complain God Of Thunder isn't there, but at least they changed it up much more than usual. Glad they finally pulled Lick It Up, and no Love Gun is weird. Also glad Crazy, Crazy nights wasn't in there.

I'm super excited KISS will be opening with King of the Night Time World. This will be my 3rd time seeing KISS under the current line up in a few weeks and I'm at least happy every time I see them I get a slightly different set with at least a few things I haven't seen before (Christine Sixteen!) no Love Gun is kinda a bummer but I'll live. As far as the Def Leppard set goes I'm cool with it as I have never seen them before all though I would like Rock Rock (Till You Drop).

I would be totally fine with either set, considering I've yet to see either band.

There are a ton of songs I'd rather hear, but Two Steps Behind is considerably better than Let's Get Rocked. The latter is one of the worst things to ever happen to Def Leppard.

That KISS set is pretty surprising, by the way. Not amazing by any stretch, but not at all what I thought it'd be. Awesome to see Makin' Love, Psycho Circus, and especially Hide Your Heart in there.

Unfortunately, there's no way Paul's voice is ever getting better, so this is too little, too late.

Def Leppard is the worst band of all time at picking a setlist. They always they the same garbage every single tour. I never wanna hear those Hysteria songs again.

They're definitely contenders, and it's all because of Joe. His attitude towards audiences being unresponsive to older, and perhaps more obscure material is unnerving, to say the least.

I will say, though, when they opened for themselves (as Dead Flatbird) at the Las Vegas shows, they pulled out some pretty cool stuff.

I have seen them 4 or 5 times, and I have seen a few gems...but not many. Mirror Mirror and Another Hit and Run back in 07 was great. That's all I can really say, well that and God's of War.

That KISS setlist is boring apart from Psycho Circus. I hope by the time they come back to Europe, which will probably be next year, they've changed it.
