    Full show from the first night of the tour.

    I changed my opinion for the stage set (now that I see more decent footage) - it looks amazing. The big video screen is cool.

    Old but gold, as they say. Seriously, Ace's laugh is infectious. :lol::lol::lol:

    There is dedication ... good job dude .. and kind of sad that he is singing better than the actual Paul while on fire

    Hehe, indeed. Big respect to the crew and the singer didn't miss a beat. As some YT-commenter said, he must have lots of confidence in the crew (I wonder how long it took before he was aware of this though).

    No clue, you would think he would feel the heat .. but I am not going to put on a wig, set it on fire, and test out how long it takes for me to feel it

    There’s a video of Gene’s hair catching on fire and he says that he didn’t realize it until there was a wet towel over his head.

    I guess it's the other heat as well. Lights, excitement etc.

    Destroyer - Kiss

    Detroit Rock City - The classic Detroit rock city kicks off the album, I'm used to the single version so hearing the extended intro and outro is a nice change. I quite enjoy this version even more than the single version. Classic tune and classic Kiss. - 10/10

    King of The Night Time World - Kicking off from the crashing outro of the previous song the second track has a nice groove for the opening riff before being covered up by the vocals, overall this song is solid but not really amazing. That opening riff however is wonderful - 7.5/10

    God Of Thunder - A Heavier groove kicks off Gene's first vocal track of the album, overall another solid track, Gene's vocals on this one don't really live up to Paul's on the previous two but they aren't the worst vocals from a non-lead singer taking lead that I've heard. Lyrics have a nice menacing theme to them and it works really well live.- 7.5/10

    Great Expectations - This song falls flat as well for me. It started off well, but Gene's vocals on this one really aren't good. Song itself could of been really good but it just isn't - 6/10

    Flaming Youth - A fast return to form following the previous track, Paul is back on the vocals, and the track benefits from this. Instrumentation is solid. Overall this song is another solid track. - 8/10

    Sweet Pain - The best vocal performance from Gene, it really suits the song. Instrumentation is really strong on this one, screaming guitars behind the chorus and a nice beat going throughout the track - 8/10

    Shout It Out Loud - Another classic Kiss song, great for crowd energy and overall a super fun song. Arena sized chorus and outright amazing in its simplicity yet effectiveness. - 10/10

    Beth - The piano ballad lets drummer Peter Criss take the vocals and he does a solid job, a heartfelt sentimental ballad which hits its mark really well. 10/10

    Do You Love Me - The final song listed on the original album, a mid paced rocker with some mid ranged vocals from Paul. Overall the song is solid but lacks creativity, which unlike on Shout it Out Loud it doesn't really hold true. - 7.5/10

    Rock and Roll Party - A hidden instrumental track which ultimately serves no purpose for the album and I will not be counting it towards the ratings.

    Overall 83% -> 77%

    I like King of the Night Time World more than you and Great Expectations/Flaming Youth less ... but that is pretty much spot on. Damned good album. The re-release with the original Sweet Pain solo is interesting

    Can't watch with sound at the moment, so is Paul Stanley lip-synching when talking to the reporter? :p
