KISS And Def Leppard Setlist Summer 2014 + Concert Review #Kiss40Tour #DefLeppard

KISS and Def Leppard Setlist Summer 2014

If you are looking for a concert that is basically two for the price of one then check this out. KISS and Def Leppard are on tour for a few more months together this year with both bands doing long sets. Jay and I saw the concert in Charlotte this past weekend have the KISS and Def Leppard setlist for those of you who would like to know what you might expect to hear at a show on this tour. Keep in mind that they might change it up a little between shows, but this should give you a general idea.

KISS And Def Leppard Setlist Summer 2014

Def Leppard went on stage first {after an opening act that none of us were familiar with}. They performed 14 songs and their set list was crammed full of songs that anyone who knows Def Leppard will know. For the most part, they performed them the way that you are used to hearing, so I loved that. You can sing along without worrying about Joe Elliott making too many changes that may or may not ruin it.

KISS went on stage last and performed 14 songs, as well. KISS is my husband’s favorite band and we have seen them in concert once before. My husband loved this concert because he knew all of the songs. However, if you are not a hardcore fan like he is, you might find that you don’t know many of the songs {perhaps less than half}. I found that a little discouraging, as I was hoping they would play songs like “Forever,” “Beth” and “Calling Dr. Love.” They did none of these. So here is the set list for you to judge for yourself as to whether you will like their half of the show.

What are your thoughts on the KISS and Def Leppard Setlist for Summer 2014?
Do you love it just as it is? Is there anything that you would have liked to hear that they aren’t playing this year? Did you see them in a different city where the setlist was different?

Final Thoughts On The KISS And Def Leppard Setlist

All in all, I thought the concert was good. I thought both bands did better {performance-wise} in concerts that I had seen them in previously but I still can’t say that I have ever seen either of them do a bad show. I loved Def Leppard’s setlist. The only song I really would have liked to have heard that was not included is “Torn To Shreds,” but that was not a hit, so I understand it being left out. It’s just a personal fave. However, this was my 4th time seeing Def Leppard in concert and I have always been pleased when I have seen them live.

As far as KISS goes, for a celebration of their 40th anniversary and induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t do more of the hits that helped them reach these milestones. If you only know the really popular songs by KISS, I advise you to bone up on your KISS music knowledge before you see them in concert if you want to sing along. KISS is not all about the music, though. It’s about the entire experience. Having said that, the pyrotechnics are awesome and the band looks crazy cool on stage so it’s still worth paying for.

      Hahahaha! That was mine and my husband’s reaction when we found out they would be touring together and doing a show close enough for us to see.

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I have seen both bands numerous times and I have to say that Kiss puts on one of the best live show that I have ever seen. They are sssooooo good.

  3. We had friends who went to this concert! Sounds like you had a great time!

  9. That sounds like it would be an amazing time! I husband would love to go to one of their concerts!

  10. I used to love Def Leppard, and I did like Kiss. I’d go see this for the nostalgia value. It’s funny how music from our youth can take us back 20 years with just a (music) note.

    I have seen Def Leppard 4 times before and Kiss twice. The show in Toronto last night was pure magic. While I am more of a Def Leppard fan, Kiss put on a very professional show. Wish it was last night again!! Loved it!!

  29. I wish my husband could have gone to this. He would love it!

  30. I remember going to see them…. I was a huge fan. Love Bites and Pour Some Sugar On Me are my favorites of theirs

    • Dawn McAlexander

      Those are definitely some great songs. For me, their songs have stood the test of time. I am not sure that I will ever tire of hearing their music.
