I just saw Paul Stanley live. Awesome! (set list spoilers)

I just saw Paul Stanley tonight here in Orlando.... wow amazing. I thought it would be ok, but AGHH!! Fantastic!, this has to be in my top 5 concerts of all time. It was the perfect mix of solo material, KISS classics and never before played rare songs that will make a hardcore KISS fan like myself nearly crap your pants when you finally hear them live.

anyone expecting a Greatest Hits KISS show will be disappointed, this one was for the hardcore fans. Pauls voice is still amazing and he's still the best rockstar frontman in the business. KISS fans, Do NOT miss this show if it comes to your town.

SET LIST SPOILERS BELOW...........


The Set list was (to the best of my memory, not the exact order, but close)
- Live To Win (new song)
- Hide Your Heart (one of my all time favorites!!)
- A Million To One (from Lick It Up, never played live before!)
- Got To Choose (yesss! one of my favorite KISS classics!)
- Move On
- Lick It Up
- Bulletproof (new song)
- I Still Love You
- Tonight You Belong To Me
- I Want You
- Every Time I See You Around (new song)
- Strutter
- Magic Touch (from Dynasty, never before played live! I freaked!)
- Do You Love Me
- Wouldn't You Live To Know Me
- Love Gun

encore
- Lift (new song)
- Detroit Rock City
- Goodbye

Is 'Live to Win' the song that was featured in the recent South Park 'World of Warcraft' episode?

Yes.

Nice setlist!

I never understand how people give "spoilers" for a band doing a setlist on any given night. Most bands change their setlists from night to night, so you really aren't ruining anything!

Man I was just looking up his tour dates the other day. I'll be at work when he hits LA.

When I saw that "Magic Touch" was on the list I also freaked. That song and "I Still Love You" from "Creatures" kick all kinds of ass.

I won't be able to catch the L.A. show, unfortunately. I really want to see this tour, but it isn't going to happen.

I did, however, catch Paul's 1989 solo tour and it was fantastic! Eric Singer just KILLED behind the drums, and Bob Kulick was the perfect guy to have on lead guitar.

I'd be interested in hearing the "house band," but I'll have to hope for some clips on youtube - and maybe an official DVD release someday! (It could happen...)

Gene's a dick. I'd rather see this than what passes for kiss these days.

Now now. Just because he likes to get paid for what he does, doesn't mean he's a "dick".

Or did you mean he is a dectective.?

No, no, no, no...

KISS WITH Ace and Peter is just wrong. Wrong notes, wrong tempos, missed beats - KISS WITH them is a mess these days. (That wasn't always the case, but Ace and Peter are pretty darned sloppy musicians these days.)

Now KISS with Eric and Tommy - there's a freaking TANK bulldozing the audience with explosive, fine tuned POWER!!

Closer to the topic, I wonder how high Live To Win will chart.

Naw, Paul is the best thing about KISS. Paul was always ahead of the rest of the band. He probably could've gone solo back in the late 70's after releasing his first solo LP.

Sometimes sloppy and raw is good.

I got several of the 2004 concerts. They play too slow and too tight (or "clean") on many of the shows. LOVE the setlists though. They dug out a lot of the old/rarely played songs for that tour (thanks to Tommy, but he's no Ace).

if KISS had died after Ace left in 80/81, Paul Stanley would have been a huge solo act during the hair metal 80's.

Yeah, I see what you mean to a point but not sloppy the way Ace was playing. I mean I've seen live bands play the odd note or slightly out of tune and it's no big deal. But I caught several shows during the '96 Reunion Tour and I saw Ace really fuck up a few solos. I remember people laughing around me and to be honest, I was embarrased for him.

But hey, at least we knew they were playing live and not pre-recorded.

They played the same songs at slower tempos on the last 3 tours with Peter. Peter couldn't handle playing them faster - he even admitted that himself, he said he was 'pacing' himself so he could finish the shows! Do you really want a drummer like that playing in ANY band?

And Ace even messed up some rhythm guitar parts (his solos were just butchered most of the time in the "reunion" era).

I'd prefer the Revenge era line-up, but I'll take this line up any day over Peter and Ace NOW. (Peter and Ace in 1975? that's a different thing - although I'd take Eric over Peter in any era - just listen to Unplugged to get an idea of how much Eric can play with that 70's vibe when called for.)

As for Paul - he's the real songwriting talent in KISS (although Gene has written several great songs - just not as many as Paul). If they do a new album in 2008 or 2009 I'd like to see Paul really push Gene with his songwriting (like he did on Revenge).

Last night here in Chicago was filmed for a DVD release.

And, I am pretty sure there were 20 songs on our setlist. I know past setlists had 19 but the setlist on the soundboard had 20 songs on it. I don't remember which one isn't on the list posted first on this thread...

The show was spectacular. Only including "Rain" from COS could have made it any better. Or, "Heart Of Chrome" from Revenge.

I saw the 2nd and 3rd shows on that tour (Louisville and St. Louis) and it were embarrassing.

I never thought I'd rue the day they put the makeup back on, but I certainly do...
