I want to give my humble Thanks for ALL the many great Concerts over the last 47 years ago my Life to Paul, Gene, Tomny, Eric, Ace, and Peter!! You guys have truly Rocked like only a very few other Bands could have done over the many Decades and kept the younger generations interested!! I only wish that you ALL weren't going to be calling it "The End of the Road" for Kiss!! YOU GUYS TRULY PUT ON ONE HELL OF A FINAL SHOW.

I have been a fan of KISS since 1975 and a KRAZED KISS fan since 1976. The highlight of my life, for a few reasons but honestly, MOSTLY because the bandI love like NO OTHER band I had only ever been allowed/able to see live beginning in the mid 80s when their show just wasn’t what I grew up dreaming of witnessing. And by that same point, the very band that I’d grown up ‘Kollecting’ EVERY item they slapped their images onto and ‘Kovering’ my bedroom walls with posters of. “KISSisms”. So when they reunited the original four members and put together once again the ‘Klassic’ KISS stage and ‘Kostumes’. In 1996 I saw two shows in two nights in Chicago with one of them including being INVITED backstage and seeing one from upfront and the other from the ‘Sound Table’. I was BLOWN AWAY! The first night I was SO in awe that they were right there, Honest-to-God, in all their late 1970s glory, in front of me!! I was seeing them after all!! I believe I was tearing through the first half of that first show. Now, fast forward past ‘Kountless’ more MAD Successful tours, on which I have seen them now SO MANY TIMES I can only take time to tally up all my tickets and shows when it truly is all over. And despite having seen THIS ‘End of the Road’ tour show in Chicago on March 2, 2019, I will hold out hope STILL that they will come around nearby enough yet again and I will see this MAGNIFICENT SPECTACLE one more time. I will continue to go on their amazing annual KISS Kruises for as long as they will do them. My hope is that they will do no less than a full TEN YEARS of KISS Kruises. They’re very close now. And that this tour continues through to a GLORIOUS Celebration of FIFTY YEARS of KISS. Again, they’re very close. Too close, I believe, to stop short. So, my wife and I were headed to the Chicago show. And although many might think I’m not truthful, the time and days have come where I have gotten to know them and particularly their Manager well enough that I sent him a message while we made our way into the City. I said, “Doc, it’s Brian Kann (& wife, nameless here). We’re on 290 right now headed to the United Center and we this friend of yours - and lifelong KISS loyalist - would love to come see you, catch up, see the guys before the show and talk about some other things (that we had to discuss). He replied right back, and he said, “Obviously the guys are there getting makeup on. I’m in a limo now headed there from the hotel. How about meeting me at the Michael Jordan statue in about 30 minutes. Can you do that?” I replied, “YES, we’ll be there!” And so we were - he called me though, and he said that he now realized that HE wasn’t going to be able to personally meet us there, so he was sending his Head of Security. Leaving some details out. So we met with this great gentleman with a British accent, and were immediately given backstage lanyards and passes. He told us to put them on right away. Of course, we joined him, escorted down to the main floor (our seats were up close to begin with), past some big Security dudes guarding all possible points by which someone could sneak backstage. We were led to Doc, KISS’ Manager who warmly welcomed us, made us (too!) comfortable, and we enjoyed the niceties laid out for them in what is always labeled the ‘Nashville Room’. Code name for HIS Entertaining Suite, where guests of the band, who might be “anyone you’d imagine” all were. I was talking to Doc and he was introducing me to his wife and a couple of other fun people when I noticed that my wife wasn’t there any more for me to turn to to introduce to them. I asked to be excused for a minute, and I looked out into the hallway, looking left (nope) and looking right... WAIT... she was in the arms of Gene Simmons who had JUST exited his own dressing room (at least I think!!?) and he had her lifted up fairly high. Bear in mind, with boots on Gene is 7’ 0” tall and my wife is 5’ 3”. I took out my iPhone and snapped a couple of photos before going over to them. I took some time to talk up “the Demon” and then it seemed we were surrounded by the whole band, Doc, and a couple of others who I believe included Eric’s Drum Tech and either Paul or Tommy’s Guitar Tech. This being at least billed as THE LAST TIME they will play in Chicago, I had each member sign a special tour promo poster. Suddenly, not by any intention or effort, we were caught inside their brief pre-show band huddle where Doc always gives each member their “calls to action” for that night, due for example to whatever special conditions may exist within that night’s arena or maybe simply a pep talk no different than a coach does for an intense sports team; “Guys, Chicago is MY hometown! Go out there and make me obscenely proud!” - Doc McGhee So when someone came running from the stage area with the word that their time remaining was “FIVE MINUTES, GUYS!” Doc said, “Okay, let’s go!” My wife and just walked with them, immediately behind Paul Stanley, whose chains clanged on the back of his boots with every 6” platform step he took. My wife had her iPhone out and was filming them walking in front of us, toward the stage, so I began filming with mine, too. She has a much steadier hand, so my video is fun for us, but might make you vomit. The United Center, of course, is great big, and so the halls are long as well. As we got nearer to the stage, still “hanging onto the ‘we’re with the band’ concept” we could hear louder and louder roars. I shouted out, “Hello Cleveland!” Interestingly, of those near us, only Paul Stanley caught the humor, which is from a classic 1980s Rock and Roll movie called ‘Spinal Tap’, which pokes fun at bands like KISS. And literally, as we approached the final turn in the hallway before the straight “chute” out of the hallway directly to the back of their MASSIVE stage that area of the hall was packed full of fans trying to be right there as the band went from hall to stage. I believe most of those people had to have been able to be there from being members of the paid pre-show ‘Meet and Greet’ (something I’ve otherwise intentionally not bothered writing about here). As KISS (with us in tow) came upon that crowded hallway the intimidation work of the actually very nice Doc McGhee and Security seemed to instantly part that hallway like Moses parted the Red Sea, leading the Israelites through it to the other side. We have to admit that it was fun joining them all the way up to where, behind the veil of darkness and an all-black, top-to-bottom curtain emblazoned with a huge silver KISS logo, they separated from us to each step onto their own hydraulic platform elevator and the deafening sound of 20,000 fans who by now know to join the screaming introduction of, “AAAAALRIGHT CHICAGO, YOU WANTED THE BEST, YOU GOT THE BEST; THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD... KISS!! Of course, by this point we were well situated at our 2nd Row center seats. And after seeing no less than 20 KISS shows over the years, witnessing many different stages, the coming and going, and returning of lineups, NO KISS concert I’ve EVER seen could possibly compare to the stage spectacle that this was. We who are fans would always like to hear “deep cuts” that we haven’t seen them play before. And we all have opinions on what song or songs may not deserve to be in the Setlist, although THEY seem to disagree and probably have studies to sway them heavily in whatever direction - after all, it isn’t the fans who are risking nearly a $1 Billion when they build a production like this and take it around the globe. So I say that I could definitely have put together a better Setlist of their enormous catalog of music. But THIS TIME, I will say that they REALLY, SERIOUSLY nailed the stage show. If you haven’t ever seen KISS before or is you haven’t seen this tour, but have seen others, DON’T miss out on seeing this show LIVE (or Alive!) and in person. Pay to get great seats, because although everything is so big there’s no chance of you not clearly seeing it from everywhere, it’s really more about your placement in front of, away from, or beneath their effects. But you will thank me either way.

Didn't have the punch like other shows I go to. It's a dam shame they went wireless which I think sounds like crap. Nothing like the old Marshall amps or the orange amps pumping out the sound! Band was great. Would of been greater with a better system. It was like listening to a stereo system jacked up.

Incredible show, 8th time I've seen them and I'm always blown away! Took my teenage kids to this one as they both love KISS and the looks on their faces during the show was well worth the cost. Paul still sounds great for his age and Gene sounds practically the same as he did years ago.

The best show I’ve ever seen, in my lifetime. KISS opened their chest cavities and poured the contents of their hearts all over the stage. If this truly is their last tour, they will have done the impossible, satisfied the masses of insanely loyal fans. Watching them do it all, the theatrics, the hits, the macabre lust for entertaining, on wonders... why stop? But I get it, leave while you’re still the best. You owe us nothing, KISS. A hall of fame career, crafted and governed by rock gods. Thank you.
I‘ve never been to a kiss concert before and sadly I’ll never be on a kiss concert in the future. If you look up all are round 70 years old and see them on stage you will not believe it they are still on fire and their songs are still good. With my father I had a crazy crazy night. And for the younger kids who are able to hear their music it’s sad they’re not able to see them on stage again . But their history is awesome the rocked everybody since 1973 and yesterday they did it the last time in Leipzig . Thanks to Kiss I love you. #halloffame
