KISS |
40th Anniversary Tour |
O2 World Hamburg |
2nd June 2015

 
Hard to believe, I know, but a KISS concert was a first for both Sexy Hubby and I… We were therefore quite curious to see if the band, on their 40th anniversary tour, would live up to its reputation for spectacular shows.

We had bought VIP tickets and arrived about two hours before the concert, as catering was included. Just like with the Scorpions in Berlin in 2010, O2 World did not disappoint. The food was lovely, with plenty to choose from, the wines very good and the service friendly and faultless. The same could sadly not be said about our Bon Jovi Diamond Circle VIP Experience in 2013 in Cologne!

The Dead Daisies opened the festivities at 19:45. We had enjoyed their acoustic set at the Hard Rock Café the day before and it was great to see them live again. They played until 20:30, which we thought was not nearly long enough. Afterwards the band met with their fans and I got their new CD, Revoluciòn, and a poster signed.

It was then time for KISS to hit the stage. Wow is all I can say. The show was very spectacular indeed, with not a moment of dullness. There was always some dazzling special effect happening, members of the band performing on elevated platforms, fire blazing and yes, Gene Simmons still vomits blood!

A fabulous evening and more awesome memories to add to the collection Sexy Hubby and I are building together.

The Dead Daisies |
Acoustic Set |
Hard Rock Café Hamburg |
1st June 2015

 
Last week Sexy Hubby and I made our way to Hamburg to catch KISS on their 40th Anniversary Tour. The Dead Daisies were opening for that mythical band and the day before the concert, they treated fans to an acoustic set at the Hard Rock Café. Needless to say, we attended and had a blast! My only complaint was that it was too short… The Dead Daisies also donated a drumhead and an ESP guitar.

After their performance, the band members mingled with the audience and I had the pleasure to meet Marco Mendoza. Many thanks Marco for your kindness. It was also nice to be recognized the following night at the O2 World, while I was waiting for my CD to be signed! Sexy Hubby was also happy to catch up with Marco, having met him in London two years ago.

The Dead Daisies just released their second album, Revoluciòn. We highly recommend.
