Knights In Satan’s Service

A friend texted me late Saturday morning with two extra tickets to the KISS show at the FedEx Forum. Uh … yes, please!

Way back in 1977, 8-year-old me wanted to see them at the Midsouth Coliseum (on December 9, to be exact), but my mom waited too late to get tickets. The only seats left were behind the stage. *sad trombone*

My next shot was at The Pyramid on April 25, 2000, with Ace and Peter returning from exile for the band’s first farewell tour. A friend told me not to worry, he knew somebody who could get us free tickets. Predictably, no tickets – free or otherwise – were forthcoming, and the show sold out. *sad trombone*

Anyway, this show was a lot of fun! Here’s the set list.

Detroit Rock City
Shout It Out Loud
Deuce
Say Yeah
Heaven’s on Fire
War Machine
Lick It Up (with “Won’t Get Fooled Again” snippet)

  1. 1977 Monkeystador is super impressed with you and wants to talk about Kiss Alive II as the greatest album of all time ever.

    2019 Monkeystador is a cynical dullard who is glad he missed fog machines, Ticketmaster convenience fees, and all those loud decibels.
