KISS - Montreal, QC - 1996-08-03

Kiss, Molson Centre, Montreal, Quebec, August 3, 1996

This wins "incongruous post of the month" award nestled as it will be between posts dedicated to Jerry Garcia...but that's what my musical interests have always been about: varied, hi, middle and low brow, shameless...

This was the second time we saw Kiss on the Reunion Tour within a 10-day time span (and we haven't seen them since). The drive to Montreal was almost as fun as the show itself with the highlight being the cranking of Rush on the cassette deck as we went through Customs...

There were actually several highlights to this show...Watchin You, Shock Me, 100,000 Years...but we're going with the download below because the band stretched out the jam a little bit...I remember very, very distinctly thinking to myself, "These guys are in their mid-40s doing this ridiculous shit - but it rocks!". Now it's ten years later and I don't think I could watch them do it anymore...
