KISS – Summer Tour 2010

Very cool news just released yesterday that the legendary rock group KISS will be playing in HiFi’s backyard at The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) on Tuesday, August 17th.

Although a Tuesday night for a rock concert sucks, we here at HiFi prefer Friday’s or Saturday’s for hard rockin’; we will simply have to deal I guess.  I find it funny though that KISS is touring again, I think the last time I saw them at SPAC was for their bogus 2000 “Farewell Tour”; what a crock and I bought in to it too!  Classic Gene Simmon’s working the angle to milking the KISS fans as usual.

I’m sure that this show will be a fun family experience (my past experience at KISS shows rarely was a dissapointment); if you have not had the pleasure of seeing KISS live, do it, it’s a quality show.  The only remaining original members are Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley; I believe that Ace Frehley and Peter Criss are no longer interested in continuing the KISS legacy.  Eric Singer (drums) and Tommy Thayer (guitar) are their replacements since around 2002 and 2004; regardless they do a good job at replacing the original members.

This tour is labeled “The Hottest Show on Earth Tour”; I’m sure they will bring the heat on this tour to a many cities.

I find it humorous that the same night there is The Saratoga Chamber Music Festival taking place around the same time at the little theater on the property…talk about a clash of cultures, yikes!  I hope the classical crowd doesn’t mind hearing “Calling Doctor Love”  or “You Were Made for Lovin’ Me” in the background to their Mozart, Bartok, and Beethoven.

    KISS without Ace Frehely is like Guns N Roses without Slash, Rolling Stones without Keith Richards, Alice in Chains without Jerry Cantrell, etc…
