    Last KISS?: Sonic Temple Festival (KISS, Rob Zombie, & Others) Concert Review

    I went to some of the Saturday portion of Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival 2023 in Columbus, Ohio.
    I only saw Trivium super briefly, which I’m disappointed about because I really wanted to see them.
    I saw some of From Ashes To New and most of Falling In Reverse.
    I only saw video of Puscifer, Maynard James Keenan of Tool/A Perfect Circle other band because I had a decent spot waiting for my favorite band which I will get to shortly.
    Rob Zombie was the co-headliner.
    This was my 4th time seeing him.
    He’s always great and fun.
    But the main event was what made me the most happy. My favorite band KISS!!
    I’ve seen them 11 times in the past 25 years, and I love every album and every lineup this band has had.
    They never let me down.
    I always feel 16 again when I listen to them and see them.
    I love many bands but they make me the most happy.
    Thank you so much to them for everything they have done and made.
    And if this was my last time seeing them (I’ve said that before), then it was a great last time.
