I have been to many concerts, and I must say that KISS put on the best show of them all. Can't imagine who could top them in their classic outfits, platform shoes, make up, fireworks galore, flames, explosions, smoke machines, Gene with his fire breathing and blood spewing.... It was excellent.

We are on the far right of this picture, probably off the side still, and not too far back. We had an excellent view, plus there were two small screens on either side of the stage and a huge one behind the band. The rain stopped shortly before they took the stage. (The six opening acts had to contend with the rain.) They played for an hour-and-a-half, the classic 70s stuff. I much preferred the 40 minutes-or-so encore -- that's when they did the 80s stuff I like best. They've got a new album coming out in October, and if they happened to come back to Halifax to promote that one I'd be there in an instant. There's a lot more to a KISS concert than the music! (Lots of people had their kids there, but I was glad mine weren't -- the second-hand weed smoke was enough to choke a horse. Glad Hubs didn't have a random drug test for work today, lol! I forgot just how much that stuff stinks, and we were in the great outdoors.)

I knit a hat for Warm Hands Innu Knits on the drive there and started another one on the trip back. Pics to follow shortly.

Happy knitting!

Glad to hear it was all you could hope for and that the rain stopped in time!
