Kiss is only about one thing – entertainment. Despite Paul Stanley being 61-years old and Gene Simmons being 63, the band attracted all ages. The comic book heroes deliver nothing but a good time. 10-year old kids and their 60-year old grandfathers share the Kiss live experience together.

Lets not overlook some of the greatest pop rock of a number of generations. Kiss have never ranked in the any of the top artist, guitarist, live performance or songwriting lists but in their 60s can still sell-out arena shows around the world. In Melbourne, they are performing two arena shows to 40,000 people.

If you’ve been to a Kiss show you know the story. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are too smart to mess with success. This is a fan driven show generated over decades and based on the songs people want to hear, plus a few new ones. The recent ‘Monster’ album was kept to a two song minimum but both songs blended with the Kiss classics.

The fans came to hear the hits and see the spectacle and Kiss delivered both (as always).

Every Kiss show is larger than life. It has to be. So are they.

The Kiss setlist for Melbourne for March 5, 2013 was:

Detroit Rock City (from Destroyer, 1976)
Shout It Out Loud (from Destroyer, 1976)
Calling Dr Love (from Rock and Roll Over, 1976)
Firehouse (from Kiss, 1974)

Rock and Roll All Nite (from Dressed To Kill, 1975)
