In our first full concert performance in over a year, KISS played to a packed Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio Saturday night.

This private-ticket KISS show was a special appearance by us for Honda Corporation and with a set lasting over 90 minutes, the crowd loved every minute of it.

We flew into Columbus Friday night for a quick sound-check rehearsal at the arena followed by a night on the town for some dinner and nightlife which we enjoyed.

The Saturday night concert rocked from start to finish opening with "Detroit Rock City" and ending with the confetti-strewn "Rock & Roll All Nite" with many KISS classics in between.

We had a great time and after a year lay-off it felt awesome to get back onstage and do a kick-ass show.

My good buddy, PGA Championship winning golfer Shaun Micheel hung out with us for the weekend in Columbus.

The deal is that I give him guitar lessons and he teaches me to be a better golfer.

Here's Shaun and I backstage before we went on Saturday night.
