KISS' TOMMY THAYER Sings 'Shock Me' During Melbourne Concert; Video Available

Australia's Herald Sun reports: Melbourne got a rare glimpse of the kings of darkness in broad daylight as KISS rocked the Grand Prix crowd.

About 50,000 people saw the rockers' first outdoor show in Melbourne since playing Waverley Park in 1980.

Many race-goers missed Lewis Hamilton's win to get the best seats for the concert, which started at 7pm.

Local singer Vanessa Amorosi warmed up the crowd.

KISS frontman Paul Stanley said the band chose Melbourne to kick off their 35th anniversary tour because the city had greeted the band with "open arms and open legs."

After a quiet performance on Channel 9's "Footy Show", the volume was well and truly turned up at Albert Park.

The show hasn't changed much since 1980 a few new members and extra kilos but the same feel-good hit-fest.
