KISS premiered their new stage show for the European leg of their Monster tour.  "It's really great," founding member Paul Stanley told VH1 Radio, "You know, for so many years, we've talked about a new stage show and basically what we've been doing has been an extension of the old stage show. This is a completely different stage, it follows a really great theme, the lights are like nothing you've ever seen before."

The stage includes a 70ft tall screen along with fireballs and a giant spider.  Yes, we said spider. "This spider is just beyond anything you've seen," continued Stanley. "It'll be able to be flat and come up and walk almost to the front of the stage. It's the most amazing thing I've ever seen."
