TVD Live Shots: KISS
and The Dead Daisies at Richmond Coliseum, 9/9

They wanted the best, and they got the best… The good people of Richmond, Virginia came in droves to get their KISS fix last Friday at Richmond Coliseum for the band’s “Freedom To Rock” Tour. KISS, the Gods of Thunder, did exactly what they do best—rocked everyone’s faces off.

While some folks have said that rock and roll is dead, they’ve obviously never been to a KISS concert to witness the madness first hand. In true rock and roll form, KISS bought their magnificent stage show to Richmond, yet it’s actually a combination of things that make a KISS show so special. It’s not just the make-up, the lights, the costumes, and the killer stage theatrics. Nor is it the on-stage antics like Gene spitting blood or breathing fire during “War Machine.” What makes KISS such a special band is their attitude, their graciousness, and their legions of uniquely die-hard fans who span generations.

Their sound happens to be as tight as ever and the sheer volume of opener “Detroit Rock City” was certainly enough to blow your hair back. While KISS is as solid as ever musically, the stage show is the life of the party and still full of energy after 40 years on the road. Truly exciting in every sense, for a photographer the band spoils with image ops. It’s a master class in showmanship. (See for yourself…)
