KISS “Monster Tour”, Japan

20 Oct

I saw KISS in concert yesterday!  I have seen KISS a bunch of times…but this was one of their best shows!

They changed their stage, costumes and set list!  They played a number of songs that I’ve never heard in concert before!

The setlist:

  • Shout It Out Loud
  • Do You Love Me?
  • I Love It Loud
  • Hell Or Hallelujah
  • War Machine   (Gene’s fire breathing)
  • (Sukiyaki)
  • Heaven’s On Fire
  • Calling Dr. Love
  • Say Yeah
  • Shock Me / Outta This World
  • (Tommy’s guitar solo / Eric’s drum solo & bazooka)
  • (Gene spits blood , bass solo and “flies” to rafters)
  • God Of Thunder
  • Lick It Up
  • (Paul “flies” over audience to mini-stage)
  • Love Gun
  • Rock N Roll All Night


  • Detroit Rock City
  • I Was Made For Lovin’ You
  • Black Diamond

Here are some photos that I took:

    I want the KISS tea towel! Or the Gene tongue oven mittens! すごい!!!!

      >I want the KISS tea towel! Or the Gene tongue oven mittens!

      Those aren’t real items, are they? KISS does have their logo on an unbelievable assortment of merchandise…so it actually wouldn’t surprise if they did sell tea towels and oven mittens!

      >しゃしんありがとう! (“Thanks (for) the photos!”)

      どういたしまして! (“You’re welcome!”)


      • hollywoodsam at 8:25 pm #

        No, they’re not real…but I wouldn’t put it past them. I didn’t get any t-shirts. -_- all sold out!!!! Awesome show though.


      • tokyo5 at 8:35 pm #

        You went to tonight’s show at the Budokan?
        Is it over already?

        All of the shirts were sold-out?
        They have one more show in Japan still! What are they gonna do for tomorrow?


      • hollywoodsam at 8:39 pm #

        Went Monday, Osaka-jo. All male shirts sold-out. Perhaps they allocate a number of shirts per show? Disappointed.


      • tokyo5 at 9:39 pm #

        Oh yeah … you’ve told me that you’re on the other side of Japan!

        My friends went to today’s show at the Budokan. I’ll ask them if there were shirts.

        >My friends went to today’s show at the Budokan. I’ll ask them if there were shirts.

        I forgot to get back to this til just now.

        I asked my friends and they confirmed that there were plenty of T-shirts available at the Budokan shows.

    Awesome! Great photos, Kiss doesn’t disappoint! Hey what shirt did you decide on?


    • tokyo5 at 8:56 am #

      I got the black T-shirt and a towel, after all.


      • Metal Odyssey at 9:00 am #

        A KISS tee and towel! NICE!!!

        The older I’ve got… the MORE I buy at a concert! LOL! Then I don’t know what to do with all the merch in my arms! I’m a Rock ‘N Metal nerd. :O \m/


      • tokyo5 at 9:15 am #

        My friend got the tour book. I looked at it after the show … it’s great! The best tour book I’ve ever seen!

        Ironically, I normally get the tour books, but this time I didn’t!

        (edit. I went back and bought a tour book!!)
