KISS / The Academy Is / The Envy / Airiel Down
Walnut Creek Amphitheater in Raleigh, NC
The Hottest Band in the land came to Raleigh and they invited the whole family. That’s right, what seems to be an effort to continue their legacy by introducing the next generation of music fans to one of the greatest shows on earth, KISS allowed children under 14 free with ticketed adults. Judging by the family section of the lawn it seems like hundreds of families took advantage of the offer.
Raleigh bands opened tonight’s show. Long running local band Jam Pain Society played at the gates and Airiel Down opened the main stage. They won a contest for the spot on eventful.com and did a good job warming up the crowd. A pair of touring openers where next The Envy and The Academy Is both were younger editions to the line up who brought their own energy to the evening.
KISS worked in a few new songs from last years SONIC BOOM amongst the list of classics. There were a few set list surprises including 100,000 Years, Crazy Nights and an acoustic version of Beth. The show was every bit of the spectacle you’d expect!! The Demon breathed fire, Star Man went on a rocket ride, Spaceman’s guitar went flying away into the night! Not to mention the fire, smoke and light show that is second to none! Truly the show of all shows!
