KISS Edmonton Concert 2013:
This past weekend we took a road trip to Edmonton to see a *liitle* rock band called – KISS!
I seen them once before, in 2000 … Wait, does that age me or them?
Doesn’t matter, cause it was seriously the best show on earth! The energy, the fireworks, fire, lights, songs … amazing!
So, I was pretty pumped to go again, which didn’t disappoint in the least. KISS was just as good as I remember, if not better. I was still in awe the entire time.
The Edmonton stop was just one of a lengthy 2 year world tour. The band was supposed to go to Calgary a few days earlier, yet that show was cancelled due to the recent flooding. It was nice that the group mentioned Calgary and paid respects to those who suffered loss from the devastation.
Fun fact: Edmonton, Alberta was the 1st stop on their very first tour outside the US, in 1974!
Still going strong boys, forget all nite – they pretty much rock at life.
I never take a ‘camera’ to concerts, yet sometimes I regret that choice.
While my camera phone took alright photos of the concert, there was a specific time that night when I really kicked myself for not having a DSLR with me …
Canadian born wife of Gene Simmons – Shannon Tweed, sitting with extended family!!
I kept snapping photos of her, hoping one wasn’t entirely blurry, yet this is the best I have. Shannon is very ‘smiley’, played with the kids a lot, and she tosses her hair around more than a haircolor commercial. Seriously. But hey, toss it woman – YOU have every right!
Overall a very memorable trip, I hope to have the chance to see KISS for a third time one day.
What is the best concert you’ve ever gone to?
