No malice intended dude, should have used purple text to denote sarcasmActually, if I wanted to play to drunks in bars, I'd play Detroit Rock City. Playing the other stuff was strictly so I DON'T play to drunks in bars....that like Detroit Rock City. So there is that. Nice try though. LOL
See, when you play DRC, it goes over great to the 7 50+ yr. old bikers left in the bar at 11:30 p.m., who sit there and scream "yeah man....kiss rules". At 1:45 a.m., you pack up and arrive home about 3 a.m..
When you play the other shit, you have hot chicks in their 20's and 30's packing the dance floor. You also get $1500 and up gigs to play to set/private/built in crowds, and you are done by 10:30/11:30 pm.. The cool thing is, we still do AC/DC, GnR, Puddle of Mud, Alice Cooper, Ozzy.....a definite method to the madness, there is.
It’s not only the article I linked that has them lip syncing, but several others too. Our singer went to the show in Detroit, he loves them, and could tell....he was in the first 10 rows.
Ok, here you go. WCSX is a local rock station, and there is a video. Pretty obvious. I feel bad for the fans...for me, I find it funny because it’s further proof they are just money whores in clown suits, not musicians, but I feel for the fans who pay good money. https://wcsx.com/2019/02/05/video-kiss-lip-syncing-final-tour/
While I agree with you 100% there are many many pop shows where the main artist lip syncs. Its been going on for decades. Anytime you see someone really dancing and moving singing and the vocals sound perfect ...they are lip syncingI know I bust balls when it comes to Kiss every chance I get, but seriously.....I don't care what the name of the band is, if you can't perform the songs, hang it up. Band name aside, it's disgraceful, and a huge disservice to the fans paying huge amounts of money for tickets. If you have to do it, at least disclose it. My disdain aside, I realize they are a pretty popular act....if I were a fan, I'd be pissed. Nothing like souring your legacy more than you already have. Know when to stop.
You are absolutely right. I don't do pop shows though. The best band with the best "show" I have seen would have to be TSO.....Zero lip sync. When I go to a rock or blues concert, I don't expect or pay to see that.While I agree with you 100% there are many many pop shows where the main artist lip syncs. Its been going on for decades.

I would never see them, but to your point....if I go see an aging act, I don't expect it to sound or look like "back in the day". I expect them to be 1/2 step down tuning, and I expect they may not hit all of the notes even with that. Music isn't about perfection. All of that said, if you cannot put on a reasonably good performance without the aid of computers and backing tracks, then just stop.I went to a puppet show once, and I’m not shitting you by saying that I thought I saw a string or two. As it turns out, they were not issuing refunds.
Paul Stanley is in his 60’s. Did you expect Strutter to sound like the original recording?
