Kiss Army Invades Toronto
Sept 10, 2010 suddenly looked and felt a lot like Sept 10, 1975 (the release date of the first Kiss live album Kiss Alive) and 35 years to the day, an extraordinary army of painted faces, spandex and aluminum foil outfits marched upon the Molson Amphitheatre to see their Rock N Roll Messiahs orchestrate a concert spectacle that no other band can match.
Supporting their latest album of 2009 Sonic Boom, that “can only be purchased at Walmart” as Paul Stanley cheekily incited the crowd to repeat, Kiss with original founders Stanley and Gene Simmons accompanied by Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer delivered nothing less than what the loyal Kiss Army expected. With a catalogue spanning close to 4 decades, there was no shortage of material for the 2+ hour set.
“This is real Rock n Roll, there’s no musicians below, no hidden microphones, no lip-synching” proclaimed the Star Child Stanley, who at 58 years young, was in top form. Serving as ring master to the circus, he engaged the crowd throughout the night and fans licked it all up singing along to classics including Deuce, Calling Doctor Love and Love Gun.
