KISS came to Irvine, CA and played at FivePoint Amphitheatre on September 9, 2021 after postponing 4 shows because of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley testing positive for Covid. They were full of energy and electricity as they came out to the stage and played like they never had a day off. You know the dedication and passion KISS has to perform and put on a show for the fans, that’s why they’ve been able to do this for such a long time and why they are such legends in their own right.
Opening the night was this incredible performance painter David Garibaldi. His energy captured the audiences attention as he created 3 different paintings right on stage. The first two paintings he created were music legends Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison. It was magic watching the paintings come to life while Garibaldi danced and showed us his unique process of giving life to these blank canvases. His last piece was of the band KISS themselves and it was amazing watching him create it upside down the entire time until he flipped it when it was finished. Amazing to watch and experience.
Then everyone got what they came for, the best. KISS came down from their elevated individual circular stages while playing the opener Detroit Rock City while everyone went crazy with positive energy singing along with every word. KISS are on a whole other level when it comes to performing for their fans. There’s was no shortage of fire, explosions, confetti, and pure passion for the fans in Irvine. KISS played through their catalog of albums and kept rocking until they were literally shut down due to lightning in the immediate surrounding areas, now that’s how a band brings the electricity.
KISS did all their show stoppers, Gene breathing fire, Paul smashing his guitar, Eric doing an epic drum solo, and Bruce showing his skills with the guitar. This is their End Of The Road Tour, so you know what that means. You need to go out and see KISS because it’ll be the last time that you can. These hall of famers are touring the world one last time to give their fans, old and new, what a rock show experience should be like. Their remaining North American tour dates are listed below. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see rock n roll royalty do what they do best.
