KISS kicked off its Alive 35 North American tour last night (Friday, September 25) at the Cobo Arena in Detroit, Michigan. The band played its classic album "Alive!" in its entirety, and introduced a new stage set, pyro effects that only the "hottest band in the world" could deliver, and all-new costumes. Fans were treated to a two-and-a-half-hour set of some of rock's greatest hits, including "Rock and Roll All Nite" and "Detroit Rock City", as well "Modern Day Delilah", the first single from the band's new album, "Sonic Boom".
Check out a review from Detroit Free Press. Photos can be found at this location.
