5-Year-Old, 82-Year-Old Attend First Ever KISS Concert At Lakewood

Updated:

None - One look around the parking lot at Aaron's Amphitheater at Lakewood Tuesday night and there was no mistaking who was in town. KISS returned to Atlanta.

"It's a lot like going to a circus," said fan Shane Hill. "There's a lot of fireworks. There's a lot of fire breathing. They look a lot like superheroes up on stage, eight inch platform heels, breathing fire, flying through the air. It's a lot of fun."

Hill has seen KISS a dozen times, but Tuesday marked a first for his family. It was the first time his 5-year-old son accompanied his dad and mom, Maria Hill, to the show.

"We have four boys, but (Nicholas) wanted to go," Maria Hill said. "He wanted to get painted up like his dad."

Five-year-old Nicholas might have been the youngest first-time KISS concert goer at the show Tuesday night. On the opposite end, 82-year-old Bess Lyle might have been the oldest. She attend her first KISS concert Tuesday night with her daughter and 9-year-old grandson Tyler Brooks. One of her granddaughters works for the band.

Lyle said she looked up the band on the Internet and watched them on Jay Leno so she knew what to expect. She even had a star painted on her face.

KISS took the stage around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. A packed house greeted their entrance.
