Now with KISSOLOGY 3 they have again included an incomplete concert or two due to editorial decisions. This is unfortunate, because some of the songs missing are some of the highlights of those particular shows!
The Detroit 1992 show from the Revenge Tour SHOULD have been included in its entirety. Many fans feel that the Revenge era was the high point of the bands' career, and that tour featured some fantastic performances of both classic and more recent material. MIA from that show, inexplicably, are "Hotter Than Hell," "Firehouse," "I Want You," "Strutter," "Forever," and "Shout it out Loud." Even more perplexing is the fact that the bonus disc of the Sao Paulo show from 1994 is (possibly) complete! While that IS a great development (the first bonus disc with just about a complete concert - this one is only missing, if anything, the final encore of "Rock and Roll All Night," and according to sources they may not have even played it at that show), it is also disappointing since they didn't give that treatment to the Detroit '92 show on the main DVD set. (Unfortunately, the version with the Sao Paulo bonus disc will not be available through Amazon...)
Also missing are a handful of songs from the Tiger Stadium show from '96, as well as some great TV appearances that should have been locks to be included (Arsenio Hall 1993 and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 1993 being the two big omissions).Read more ›
It IS the Tiger Stadium show, but unfortunately what you are watching is the footage that was shot and then projected on the video screens behind the band during the concert. So you're watching something that was meant for the people who were actually there at the time, and not for a home viewing audience. There are no wide shots of the stage or shots of the pyro going off, because the people there could already SEE those things in as much clarity as they needed to.
The reason the screen goes black when Paul is talking is because the cameras were off. There was nothing being projected onto the screens during these moments. Only the audio was recorded. This is also why "Beth" is missing from the setlist. Peter Criss performed this song under a lone spotlight at center stage with no video being shown behind him. Rather than give you 3 minutes of a black screen with "Beth" playing, they wisely opted to drop it from the DVD.
Which is precisely what they should've done with the entire SHOW. I can't believe this is the best they could give us from arguably the most important tour in KISS' career, their '96-'97 Reunion Tour. It's a very poor show to watch. You get no sense of the scope of the stage, you see very little pyro going off, and it's a step above bootleg quality at best because of it.Read more ›
Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit MI 1992 (Revenge Tour)- Surely, there were better concerts from this tour, than this concert. There still are intense performances on here. Overall: 7.5/10
Unplugged Behind the Scenes: Nice little treat looking back at the Convention and rehearsals. I love when Gene says "Hiya Pete" and Peter says Geno. I love it when Gene says "Frehley" to Ace. Overall: 8.5/10
MTV Unplugged: Every momment of this is pure magic, I love it. Overall: 10/10
Tiger Stadium, Detroit MI 1996 (Reunion Tour): What can i say, I really don't like this concert. There were way better concerts than this, that's for sure. The sourced video is a screen feed, it was meant for who were there watching it, not a home viewing audience. Overall: 5.5/10
MTV Vma Performance, Brooklyn Bridge NY 1996: Great great performances on this. I love the intensity. Overall: 10/10
Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles CA 1998 Psycho Circus tour)- Great video & sound quality. It's probably one of the better concerts from this tour. Overall: 10/10
Dodger Stadium Part 2: Same review as above
Detroit Rock City premiere party, Los Angeles CA 1999: great little gig hyped for the movie. Overall: 9.5/10
"The Last Kiss" Continental Arena, East Rutherford NJ 2000 (Farewell tour): Outstanding, outstanding video & sound quality, and one of the better concerts from this tour. Overall: 10/10
Coventry, Queens NYC 1973: not the best quality, but a great & historical gig that had to be on here.Read more ›

|Kissology 3 big disappointment...||
I too was a the Tiger Stadium show back in 1996 and can not believe they edited DRC from the DVD. Also, there is no footage of helicopters passing overhead with spotlights, huge air inflated "statues", gigantic KISS ARMY banners on both sides of the stage or shots of outside the stadium...

|Kissology Vol. 3 Bonus disc info. update*||
Thanks for the early info, Mike. If you were only buying one copy, which one would you buy? I'm torn between the Brazil show(Revenge was one of my favorite tours) and the NYC show.

|Now it's a 5 disc set?||
Well, if you include the bonus disc, it's 5 discs.
The bonus disc for the general retail is the Irvine, CA '96 show. The main set is 4 discs, then the bonus = 5 total.
The bonus disc is a limited edition thing. Not sure the # of copies will be made with bonus discs.
Walmart has the Brazil '94... Read More
