"We have been waiting for this DVD for so Long.
Finally the great "Live To Win" tour is documented live.
As someone who has followed Paul since the 70's both his solo stuff and with his band(you may have heard of them...KISS), I can tell you that this man always delivers Live. Paul has always been one of the greatest fontmen in rock, and this dvd will show it once again.
Having the chance to see Paul live on his 89' solo tour and with Kiss, I look forward to buying this dvd. The director Louis Antonelli has been showing sneak peaks at Kiss expos all around the country and the KISS Army is waiting to get their hands on this dvd.
Here is what is on it.
Live To Win
Hide Your Heart
A Million To One
Got To Choose
Tonight You Belong To Me
Lick It Up
Wouldn't You Like To Know Me
I Still Love You
Everytime I See You Around
Do You Love Me
I Want You
Detroit Rock City
It covers material from his 78" solo LP , His work with KISS and of course his most recent cd "Live To Win".
October 21st cannot get here fast enough."
Great but could've been better.

"Like most KISS and PS fans around the world I was looking forward to this dvd for a long time. The fact that this show was recorded 2 years ago and the news leaked out about an up & coming dvd release back then gave fans something really special to look forward to.
The show itself is great as you would expect although it would be pretty hard to mess up filming a band in a small imtimate venue like that. Not sure what all the useless hype about director Louis Antonelli was all about, a six year old could've filmed this show. Sound is awesome, very live & raw as it should be. I went to 4 Australian shows & what you get on this dvd is 100% what you see live.
My only gripe is that they basically advertised for over a year that a "Live To Dream" doco would be included. Instead all we got was a dull prologue intro with information we all already know about Paul anyway. KISS fans have long memories and are the only ones going to buy this, and from reading some of the other reviews others wanted the extra features too. We saw footage/pictures a of Paul interview from his house, soundcheck, meet & greets etc but it all hit the cutting room floor. Look at the new RUSH dvd coming out next month. 3 discs packed with concert footage and extras for the same price as One Live Kiss."
I Was There!!!!

"Seeing how I was there at the House Of blues in Chicago, I know the dvd is going to blow everyone away because the show sure did me. I've been a Kiss fan for over 30 years. Paul put on such an awesome show. I have been bugging Louis Antonelli for two years now about this coming out, and several times he has told me to be patient, it will be worth it.
Now I can't wait to relive this show again some two years later. Regardless if you're a big kiss fan or not you can really get into this one, and with the CBS "Rock Star Band" backing him only makes it that much more perfect.
What more can I say, just simply, it will be awesome."

"*edited today (10/15/08) as I've now seen the film in its entirety*
I've been trying to find the right way to verbalize my feelings about this film since returning from the Dayton KISS Expo where we were given the honor of viewing this DVD first. As I told Lou Antonelli afterwards - I have no words.
The film production was immaculate from the opening frame to the end credits. Lou really captured the feelings of every single Paul Stanley fan out there. After watching it, I was left speechless - just filled with so much emotion I had no real way to express how I was feeling. When the film was over, I turned to my friend Missy who was sitting next to me and said, "I didn't think I could love him more than I did before, but I do." It was that special and touched me that much.
I thank Louis Antonelli from the bottom of my heart for bringing us this wonderful film about someone who means so much to me, and to so many others.
And, of course, thank you, Paul. You really are special.
I have been waiting patiently for the much anticipated release of this DVD since I learned it was being filmed. Having had the wonderful experience of attending opening night of the tour and the opportunity to see previews of this film on two separate occasions at KISS related events, I can honestly say this DVD will not disappoint. Director Lou Antonelli's vision brings us the true Paul Stanley - magnificent showman, talented songwriter and musician. Whether or not you are a KISS fan, this film is definitely worth the money. Don't pass it up!!
