To some, if not most, the 1976 multi-platinum album that is ‘Destroyer’ by iconic rock band KISS was the gateway drug into rock ‘n’ roll. To many, this album was more than just an album; it was a bible or monument of hope when many thought of rock music as blasphemy. And today, to mark 30 years since its original release, this historic album has been re-mixed and re-mastered by its original producer, Bob Ezrin, and re-released as ‘Destroyer: Resurrected’. Just the name gives you chills.

Thousands of people at Donington park travel down towards the main stage to watch the headliners of the festival’s first day, Kiss. Known to be a spectacular visual performance throughout the course of their career, those who aren’t too keen on the music will still get entertainment from the legendary rock band.

A large flag with the Kiss logo cloaks the stage, and when ripped away it presents the four band members, with all of the members aside from drummer Eric Singer, being lowered from the top to the bottom on an elevated platform. With pyrotechnics aplenty aswell as confetti being sprayed across the front of the arena like dandruff. Songs like ‘Hotter Than Hell’, and ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’ go down a treat, with a large amount of people uninterested in classic rock becoming bedazzled by the visual delights. Throughout the set various band members show-off their talent on their instrument, which may come across as self-indulgent, but with an act like Kiss they can get away with it. Again the visual prospects are important in this field, with fireworks flying out from Tommy Thayer‘s guitar head during his improvised guitar solo.

After a long set of classic anthems from the legendary group, Kiss bid their farewells after their show of fire and excitement. Whether you like their songs or not, their stage presence and appearance is one not to miss.
