It was the perfect time for a rock concert on Saturday at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park.
Kiss led the party as the band brought their End of the Road tour back to Chicagoland once again. The band’s high energy, huge theatrical performances, colorful makeup and spectacular costumes were in the spotlight in an almost two-hour show featuring all of the band’s musical favorites.
The Kiss Army – avid and longtime fans of the group – came out in force to enjoy the show. Many fans wore costumes of their own making that were similar to their musical heroes and they also painted their faces artfully with bold makeup.
The group, which has been around since the 1970s, now stars original “Demon” members Gene Simmons and “Starchild” Paul Stanley as well as Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.
Stanley mentioned that the Chicago area has been a favorite spot for the band since the mid-1970s, when they played at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom.
Each Kiss concert is a dynamic production with fireworks displays and vibrant, vivid video presentations.
All of the members of Kiss, who are the ultimate showmen, remained energetic throughout the show. Simmons still showcases his bloody deception as Stanley’s segment where he zips through the crowd to the other side of the room remains a visual highlight.
