            On this particular night, all 4 members of the Concert Blast team were together to start the podcast, but on the concert  review portion of the podcast, James Downing had a Meet & Greet VIP Pass to meet the band members after the show while Mike, Brian, and Tom recorded the concert review.

            This is the best setlist and most energetic performance the guys had seen Train perform, although it wasn’t as energetic as the Pat Monahan Solo Tour.

                                  KISS Concert Review – Alive 35 Tour – Nashville, TN – 10/28/2009 (BLOG)

                                  Be Sociable, Share!

                                    KISS, the hardest working band in the world, hit the stage Wednesday, October 28th, 2009, at the Sommet Center, (the big arena) in Nashville, TN with opening act, Buckcherry, as they continued on their KISS Alive 35 tour across the world.  I first saw KISS as they toured for their first album and have seen them in concert about twelve times.

                                    Buckcherry slowly warmed the crowd as most patrons waited to arrive after their set.  Usually their set is full of profanity, but they kept it fairly tame until their last song of the night.
