Wordless Wednesday KISS Style – With Linky! #wordlesswednesday


KISS Gene Simmons

My husband’s favorite band is KISS. In honor of their new album recently coming out {yes, I bought it for him} I thought I would make my Wordless Wednesday post about their concert that we attended in 2010. ๐Ÿ™‚ Check out this extreme closeup of Gene Simmons!

KISS Concert – Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte, NC {2010}

KISS Paul Stanley Tommy Thayer

This was the first KISS concert that my husband, my daughter or I had ever been to. We went with several of our friends and it was the first KISS concert for many of them, as well. As you can see, the stage and the set design was very cool. And it was so hot, in the summer. How they wear those crazy outfits in that heat is beyond me!

KISS dancing

My husband is the master of the air guitar and a legend in his own mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is my husband and my other nephew and their imaginary instruments. They think they are awesome.

My nephew getting ready to rock!

I think this was my nephew’s first concert – or one of the first! He seemed to be having a blast! Music really does unite people of all ages, doesn’t it?

kiss tshirt

This is one of the cool tshirts that we picked up at the venue. We love concert tshirts and try to get them at most concerts that we attend. They can be really expensive. Picking them up after the concert is definitely the way to go. ๐Ÿ™‚

kiss tickets

We got our tickets one day when they were crazy cheap on Live Nation. $10 each at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte, North Carolina! Sweet deal, eh? I recommend getting on their email list if you haven’t already. We also saw Poison for $10 and maybe a couple other bands. They run $10 specials pretty often. ๐Ÿ™‚
