The KISS set list YOU would like to see...

I ran across these on YouTube and started thinking about how cool it would be to have a tour where they played not just one or two obscure titles, but 9 or 10!




And of course there's this one (that should have been in the set list back in the 70's)...




So what would YOUR ideal/ultimate KISS set list include? (20-24 songs)

For me, I'd love to see them play this set list next time out...

1. Creatures of the Night
2. Deuce
3. I Stole Your Love
4. Tears Are Falling
5. Calling Dr. Love
6. All American Man
7. Unholy
8. Love Her All I Can
9. All the Way
10. Heart of Chrome
11. War Machine
12. 100,000 Years
13. Hell or High Water
14. Firehouse
15. Hotter Than Hell
16. Watchin' You
17. Flaming Youth
18. Jungle
19. Nothin' to Lose
20. Take Me
21. Black Diamond
encore
22. Detroit Rock City
23. King of the Night Time World
24. All Hell's Breaking Loose
25. Heaven's On Fire

OK, that's a bit of a cheat with 25 songs, but that's as much as I'd cut it down. Are you reading this Gene? Paul? Tommy and Eric would love to play this stuff!

I want at least 3 songs off of "Music From the Elder." List to follow when I have time.

A set list without "Christine Sixteen" is no set list I care to hear.

Just sayin'.

Christ, this is a tough one... give me a few days and I'll produce my ideal set list (assuming I have to keep the length somewhat real).

I still think a tour with all living past & present members would be a cool way to go out.

My Ultimate Kiss Setlist...

Thrill's In The Night
God Of Thunder
Nowhere To Run
Tears Are Falling
Reason To Live
Cold Gin
Sure Know Something
Lick It Up
Strutter
Shock Me
Burn Bitch Burn
Crazy Crazy Nights
I Love It Loud
Within
Paralyzed
Uh! All Night
Forever
Exciter
Talk To Me
Get All You Can Take
Unholy

Encore's to a perfect night....

Heaven's On Fire
I Was Made For Lovin' You
All Hell's Breaking Loose

I'm with Darth Maher about having all living members present for a dream concert to go out, with a tribute to Eric and Mark, man to see Vinnie Vincent, Ace, Bruce and Peter with the the present band would be sweet, "Shock Me" and "Talk To Me" which are on my setlist wouldn't sound right unless Ace sang them, NO "Detroit Rock City" or "Rock and Roll All Night" on my setlist, that alone makes it a great night.

I've always been a fool for Goin' Blind, but the reason I love it so is because Gene sounds so young on Hotter Than Hell. For the same reason I love Parasite from that album. http://youtube.com/watch?v=eIyo4kpsEas

I would not want to hear him sing those in 2008.

I don't think I answered the question correctly.

Here's a setlist I'd kinda like to see. There's gonna be some standards in there -- if a KISS show ain't got Black Diamond or Firehouse, it ain't a KISS show to me -- but also some deeper cuts as well.


1. The Oath
2. Exciter
3. Strange Ways
4. Speedin' Back To My Baby
5. I Love It Loud
6. Just A Boy / World Without Heroes (medley)
7. Snowblind
8. I Still Love You
9. Love Her All I Can
10. Firehouse
11. Talk To Me
12. Rock Bottom
13. Plaster Caster
14. Take Me Away (Together As One)
15. C'mon and Love Me
16. Christine Sixteen
17. It's Alright
18. Cold Gin
19. Black Diamond

*encore*

20. God of Thunder (Demo version, faster with original lyrics and Paul singing)
21. Calling Dr. Love
22. Rocket Ride
23. Tomorrow

*exit music to get the jacked-up crowd to leave the auditorium quickly*

24. The entirety of the Peter Criss solo album


So my show would have:

- 3 from "Kiss"
- 1 from "Hotter Than Hell"
- 3 from "Dressed To Kill"
- 1 from "Destroyer" (demo version)
- 1 from "Rock N Roll Over"
- 2 from "Love Gun"
- 1 studio track from "Alive II"
- 2 from "Ace Frehley"
- 2 from "Paul Stanley"
- 2 from "Unmasked"
- 3 songs from "The Elder"
- 2 from "Creatures of the Night"
- 1 from "Lick It Up"

I think it'd be an awesome show. Casual- or barely-KISS fans would be bored outta their butts.

Wow, none of those have Love Gun included eh? That's my all-time favorite Kiss song & album. I don't care how many times they've played it, it'll never be enough. For me, it comes within one song of being their only "perfect" record. I know the popular choice is usually Destroyer, but Love Gun has only 1 gaffe, where as Destroyer has a couple. If only they would've did Jailhouse Rock instead of Then He Kissed Me... Plus, it's their greatest album cover-art.

Damn, this is pretty tough. I started with 50-some songs and narrowed it down somewhat hastily and haphazardly to these 24. And a quick glance just showed me that I didn't include Detroit Rock City - have to fix that! I can't even begin to put them in a 'set list' order.

1. Strutter
2. Cold Gin
3. C'mon And Love Me
4. Rock And Roll All Nite
5. King Of The Night Time World
6. God Of Thunder
7. Shout It Out Loud
8. Do You Love Me
9. I Want You
10. Detroit Rock City
11. Makin' Love
12. I Stole Your Love
13. Christine Sixteen
14. Shock Me
15. Tomorrow And Tonight
16. Love Gun
17. Plaster Caster
18. Rip It Out
19. Lick It Up
20. All Hell's Breakin' Loose
21. Heaven's On Fire
22. Who Wants To Be Lonely
23. Tears Are Falling
24. Forever

24 Songs I'd Like To See KISS perform

It's far too tough to come up with the ultimate KISS set. But if I was going to pick 24 songs, I'd have to narrow it down to songs that I haven't seen yet, or rarely see. It definitely wouldn't include Rock and Roll All Nite. I guess I'd go with (and the first 5 being just in that order....everything else would fall into play where ever).........

1....Coming Home (Opener)
2....Tomorrow & Tonight
3....Getaway
4....C'mon And Love Me
5....Rocket Ride
6....Ladies Room
7....Hard Luck Woman
8....Room Service
9....Strange Ways
10...Flaming Youth
11...Naked City
12...Magic Touch
13...Save Your Love
14...A World Without Heroes
15...All American Man
16...Saint And Sinner
17...Killer
18...War Machine (Performed at every KISS show if I can help it)
19...A Million To One
20...King Of The Mountain
21...Bang Bang You
22...Read My Body

(Encores)
23...Rockin' In The USA
24...I


Speaking of set lists......imagine if Alive 2 had 5 other previously released studio tracks on it.....and imagine if the 5 previously unreleased tracks were on what could have been the album that possibly could have followed sometime in 1978?

Side 1

All American Man
Rockin In The USA
Larger Than Life
Rocket Ride
Anyway You Want It (possibly to be left off the album)

Side 2...(Pick any 5 of your favorite songs from the solo albums)

Radioactive
Tonight You Belong To Me
Rip It Out
Move On
See You Tonight


Or imagine the 4 previously unleased tracks from Killers on the same album with the 5 previously unreleased tracks from Alive 2. That would have been a killer album.

Re: The KISS set list YOU would like to see...

I'm sorry, but that Lick It Up set list is ridiculous. Love Gun should be before Deuce.
