Demon, Starchild, Spaceman and Catman are not about Marvel's newest superhero, but Rockstars – namely with the probably best-known makeup of music history. fire fountains, Donnerschläge, Laser, Stroboskopblitze, Fake blood and confetti: If Kiss occur, everything ascended, what the entertainment fundus hergibt. So it was on the anniversary show last Wednesday, the 10. June and the masked band performed their delightfully anachronistic show at Zurich's Hallenstadion on.

I again see Kiss, I would have left me not even dream until recently. Once in a lifetime you should have seen Kiss, Beginning just because of the great show and the 2010 The reason, I then attended a meeting of the Men. KISS, I knew even from an early age, but actually these were yet always Only the Poster and patches of the other, I myself, I thought it with Black Sabbath, Jimy Hendrix, AC / DC and punk rock. Those were the days, where you had to decide between bands, between musical genres, between life settings and Image. KISS, These were the men painted in Leggings, these were the Poser and if I Ehrlich thousand, I've never been much further advanced into this band as up to „Detroit Rock City“, „I was made for loving you“ and „Lick It Up“. But now you have brought me into the Hallenstadion back and forwards really and truly are Kiss, a voice announces the Best Ager in their Comic-Masquerades as the hot popular band in the world at.

A concert of Kiss is always a parade of fans. Some of Hallenstadion had on Wednesday the letter K, I, S and S painted on the naked torso. other, the most recent of which was estimated age of five, wore the same faces as their idols. Dozens Space Mans and Catman stood around there and when loving couples, it could even happen, that Starchild Demon kissed intimately. But it was also a time in the over forty year career of Kiss, in which the four characters of the band wanted to be no great rock'n'roll beings more. It was the time of the nineties, when they got rid of their make-up masks, a „MTV Unplugged“-Played concert and briefly betrayed with this unmasking all, which made her band for global brand.

When the black curtain with the four-letter Band Logo falls, breaks on Wednesday night all hell breaks loose. Laser flashes grab twitching through the hall. Flamethrower züngeln heatedly in clock. Firecrackers explode and glistening fireworks sizzle on stage. You can not see the band members behind all the make-up showing their age. Gene Simmons is 66 Years old, Paul Stanley 63, the other two are in their fifties. In mock youthful exuberance the experienced musicians stalk across the stage. You hear indeed, as they vocally do something difficult in some pieces, especially Paul Stanley. He notice the signs of age not only vocally to, on stage helps a teleprompter for possible text hangers. But no matter. The atmosphere does not diminish and the bombastic right from the start! In this exuberant Feuerzauber the four musicians stand with their black and white painted horror-Clownsfratzen, in schwarzledernen, studded fantasy costumes including dangerously high platform boots and banging around the 7000 Visitors their song „Detroit Rock City“ around the ears.

Nothing is comprehensible, as to dress in crazy costumes, if you want to stand up already on a stage in front of a few thousand people, covet fun. Kiss govern the hall, it is, as if their super costumes give them super powers and with great respect one sees them in their work on. Periodically, if he knows his projection on giant screens, Gene Simmons goes the famous tongue, which seems to have lost none of its length and elasticity, rolls his eyes, licking under impressive salivation the strings of his guitar from, can be at a location, the classic, martial flow never understood and never declared fake blood from the well distended jaws and while he again is in this way that indestructible black and white monster from the seventies, so he is always a gentleman winking in the prime of life, of the world are, which obviously requires the world: Rock music, wants to be the party music and must therefore primarily be nonsense. Wonderfully anachronistic entertainment to quite very dull Hard Rock. But it's like this: KISS, This also means a year 2015 Entertainment, which encounters the holy seriousness and authenticity of the holy popular rock hero with Liner.

Kiss is a cult. Kiss's Party. Kiss make a half hours for boisterous amazement. „Deuce“ Play and „Psycho Circus“. The sound is well, the volume enormously, the use of pyrotechnic wasteful degree. The impressive stage with their razor-sharp LED video walls, Headlamp Batteries and hydraulic platforms takes up the whole width of the hall. During the wonderful self-deprecating band Schlagers „Do You Love Me“ is told in the video wall, the history of rock'n'roll institution in the picture fast forward: The beginnings in New York, the golden years together with the pioneering Pyroshows, the groupies and the private with the Kiss logo and after the unvarnished years fortunately the way back to the great masquerade of classical band past. Kiss make out the rock stage a funfair ghost train together and Kuriositätenkabinett. Together they produce a rock'n'roll revue, has spared no expense in the. Oh well, a little maybe in Music. The presence of US legends provides powerful food for the eyes and the pyrotechnician is strictly speaking the fifth band member.

Compared to some colleagues Kiss have a great advantage. Kiss songs are really pop songs, They stand – said pointedly – Abba closer than Led Zeppelin. clear, it's a little harder to the crunchy riff songs, but the crafty calculated effect is quite similar. And Kiss have the, what they do, completely under control, the fans at the Hallenstadion were certainly satisfied. For his bass solo before „God of Thunder“ hangs Simmons, the man with the longest tongue of Rock'n'Roll, an instrument in the form of an order Schlächterbeils. He pounds short and crisp in the strings. He looks grim in his Kabuki-comic face into the distance. And spits in bright green spotlight, all have been waiting, with fake blood around. Little gross, but always comes back to good – as well as the Arschwackler and dance steps of his accomplice Paul Stanley. At „I Love It Loud“ chanted everything and eventually floats Paul Stanley at „Love Gun“ in fact over the heads of the audience towards Halle center, where he simply passed the ball on a pedestal. little bit „Rocky Horror Show“ with monsters to cuddle and a movement-intensive music, which comes familiar in its classic simplicity and catchy.

Kiss offer and our beautiful a, senseless evening and let it not just flash and mists, but also arrhythmic firecrackers on stage, they still drive along with their instruments on absurd lifts into the air, to make music there continue, Funk grandeur shoot them from the guitar necks, Confetti flutters in white swirls on people down, Bursts of hot air at the same time achieve a, as you can see high shoot the firing bursts on stage, beer mugs trembles of the basses, Charmer Paul Stanley on guitar throws every second plectrum in the amount. So good is the mood, spread the Kiss, that one is not even his own pre-embossed lower educational problem. Always you can easily join in the songs and something with Party, Rock'n'Roll and Love rausgrölen. A great evening, to which one will remember for a long time like. clear, Zurich has „the best fans“ or at least „the loudest“, and of course the show rolling machine Kiss as well oiled as experienced from, but extremely entertaining that is still. The mother of all Poser rock bands has been one 40 Years the most popular live bands in the world and that with good reason, because Kiss set everything in motion, to the most loyal fan bases of show business „The Kiss Army“, which keeps them on the ups and downs today faithfulness, that to offer, what they verrdienen: „You wanted the best, You got the best. The hottest band in the world!“
