Choose Your Own Kiss Concert


Recommended Posts

So Kiss do pretty much the same thing every time, swapping in and out a few songs mainly from the very early albums.

A few years ago I saw a cover band at a festival and they played The Oath and the crowd went off. And this wasn't a Kiss crowd, there were 4 or 5 cover bands playing but they all went crazy when they started this song.
So I got to thinking what my ideal Kiss concert would be, with them plaing songs they don't (or rarely) play live.
Came up with this set list - what would be yours?


I Stole Your Love


I’m A Legend Tonight

What Makes The World Go 'Round

Hard Luck Woman

Spit - Gene blood

Hard Times

All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose

I Want You - Paul Flies

Is That You

The Oath

Tomorrow And Tonight

King Of Hearts

Unholy - Gene flies

Let’s Put The X In Sex

Every Time I Look At You

I Just Wanna - crowd participation


Hide Your Heart

Take It Off - crowd participation (lifting t-shirts)

Uh! All Night

Can't come up with a specific setlist, but there's definitely a few songs especially from the 80s albums I'd love to hear live (not sure if they could still pull them off and sound good or close to studio version qualitiy but anyway here it is) for example:


from Creatures Of The Night: Keep Me Comin / I Still Love You

Lick It Up: Young And Wasted / Not For The Innocent

Animalize: Get All You Can Take / Thrills In The Night / While The City Sleeps

Asylum: Trial By Fire / Radar For Love / Secretly Cruel

Crazy Crazy Nights: Hell Or High Water / Reason To Live / Good Girl Gone Bad / Turn On The Night / Thief In The Night


Not sure if they played Hard Luck Woman on recent tours but that one would also be nice to hear.

MTV Unplugged opened the band up to a whole new back catalog that they had forgotten about.


Some of the more recent songs they started playing like Strange Ways and Room Service I can live without.

Check out the setlist (probably on-line somewhere) from Paul Stanley's solo tour from a few years back.


Other than being at the first 1996 Reunion show in Tiger Stadium Detroit, Paul's solo gig at a small club here in Portland, OR was the best KISS concert I've ever seen :)


Well, I did see them on Animalize Tour back in February of 1985, and I remember that being an awesome night. We don't normally get much snow here in Portland, but it snowed like crazy that evening, so the Memorial Coliseum was not even half filled... Toward the end of the gig Paul asked everyone to neatly and orderly make their way to the floor and toward the stage. Not the smartest request, but it sure got intimate in a hurry!

    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
