KISS ALIVE 35 STOCKHOLM STADION on the 30th of May, was one of the best days of my life.
I took the subway to, Stockholm Stadion (Stadium), which was crowded and packed with Kiss people. As I arrived, I passed Woodstock resembling camps of people everywhere as well as people with the beloved Starchild makeup which set the mood!!!
I decided to speed up my tempo in an attempt to find the line which was a few kilometers long (for real). As I found the end of the line at like 5.10 pm, I got in at 5.25 pm - CREDS to the staff for working efficiently!
The weather was perfect, sunny with a slight breeze and I bought a KISS ALIVE 35 T-SHIRT <3 along with a Fanta though wasn't aloud to keep the cap (LOL?). At around 7 the first preband performed whome
I still feel sorry for; HappyPill who gave their best but didn't get any response from a very picky and tough crowd.
The second preband; Crooked X really blew me away. For some weird reason they reminded me of Metallica's early days and these guys are 14. They woke people up with their thrash/heavy metal sound and gained me as a fan :)
I have come to realise that some bands are just much better live than stuck on records, and seeing that Kiss
are outstanding on record makes their appearance super EPIC and prominent since they were boundless!
I stood in the front of the second fence with some Canadian exchange students in which I fell inlove with their accent. When Kiss came out at last, people started pushing each other and going crazy as Kiss started of with Deuce
followed by Strutter
.It was an incendiary show that can not be described in words.
Highlights of the night: Black Diamond, Parasite, Hotter Than Hell,
I Love It Loud,Love Gun.
They ended with Rock And Roll All Nite
which made people go WILD, rocking, screaming along, tounge-wagging, jumping and raising the devil-horn in the air!
When Kiss took a bow, raised their hands and went of the stage as all of us started screaming 'we want Kiss, we want Kiss' and I was thinking they can not leave without having played Shout It Out Loud
and Detroit Rock City
among other favourites of mine.
A minute later the Starchild, Catman, Demon and Spaceman comes walking out.
You want more, dont you?"
Oh I see, It's not loud enough is it?
TURN IT UP!!! ....
Eric starts rocking a drumsolo as Paul recieves his guitar and they starts rocking Shout It Out Loud and believe me everybody did shout it out loud.
When moving towards the end playing I Love It Loud, Gene screds a kickass solo as Paul flies over us, to this tower controlling the lights behind us causing mania all over, and eventually flies back, as blood pours out of Gene's mouth. This causes a wave of like evil satisfaction xD"Love gun.. Love gun... Love gun" <3
At the final end of Detroit Rock City, Paul makes a gesture that raises the question if 'we' thought he should smash his guitar. - LOUD NOISE that all of Stockholm must have heard indicated a yes!
HE SMASHES his guitar into a million pieces!!No critics from our bullshit propaganda newspapers in Sweden are ever going to take us down! They said Kiss were off track who made a halfcrappy performance (when they themselves were flying around in an AIRBALLOON above us xS).
HAHAHA Off topic but, I'm still stoked over the fact that Kiss and the kiss army blocked and ruined the traffic lol, pissed half of the subdued inhabitants of stockholms off!!! ;)
United, we stand as one! ^^
