Paul Stanley surveys the crowd. “I got a little question for you!” he shouts. “I wanna know how many people here tonight like to take a taste of alcohol!” The crowd, an arena’s worth of people from Detroit, or Cleveland, or Jersey, or Iowa, roar their approval. “I know you know it’s getting so hot outside, you always need something to cool you off,” Stanley adds once the crowd has died down. “There’s got to be some people out there who like to drink tequila!” A smaller–though no less vocal–portion of the crowd cheers. “I was talking to somebody backstage earlier that said that you people like to drink vodka and orange juice!” he shouts, to more screaming. “Well, I’ll tell you something: when you’re down in the dumps, and you need something to bring you up, there’s only one thing that’s going to do it the way you want it. What’s that?” he exhorts. The crowd yells something in unison, garbled by the building’s acoustics. “I can’t hear you!” he prods. The crowd yells again, louder. “Cold gin!” Stanley shouts, and KISS break into the eponymous 1974 hit.
