Actually Forever reached it as well.

I see your point marker, I guess that means I can be happy that KISS don't have as much popular songs as DL .

Whatever happened to the KISS Farewell Tour from 1998 to "Whenever?" I remember seeing them in 1999 or 2000 on their Farewell tour and I thought "hey, this is it".

Boy was I wrong!! At least I saw them with Peter and Ace back then.

When you look at it that way, that was their Farewell tour. They aren't going to be playing the original lineup ever again.

Yea, the reason why the were doing that hole "farewell" tour thing was because there was conflict between Paul and Gene and Peter and Ace.

Not a bad KISS setlist for someone who has seen them tons of times already. But I can't imagine actually paying real money to see them at this point.

And compared to Def Leppard, they have had few real hit songs. It's the overall image that's so iconic with the music taking a much lesser role so they shouldn't be held by the same constraints as many other bands on the classic rock circuit.

You guys are right about the farewell tour. Paul said in an interview something like " we were doing the farewell tour, and then I realized the only thing I wanted to say farewell to is a couple of members"

Their set with Crue was better.

I only paid for lawn tickets and I'll be going to the show with a ton of friends so that will make it fun.

Mirror Mirror is, was and will always be the best DL song ever. Hard not to laugh at the love for Hide your Heart and the hatred of 2 Steps Behind. One song is awful 80's do, do,do hey hey hey cheese-idiocy and the other is an incredibly constructed song to me. To each his own I guess.

Opening with Let it Go is awesome. Kiss playing Makin' Love and Christine Sixteen is awesome also. I might actually go to this after seeing the setlists...

You're probably right, though they still have some really strong markets, Toronto being one of them. Once can only hope I guess.
