KISS kicked off their “End of the Road” farewell tour last night (January 31) in Vancouver with a 20-song setlist that spanned a surprising amount of their catalog.

The set kicked off in epic fashion with “Detroit Rock City” (video below.) Weaved between some of the band’s biggest hits were “Say Yeah” from 2009’s Sonic Boom and “Hide Your Heart” from 1989’s Hot in the Shade.  (Full setlist can be viewed below per Setlist.fm.)

As expected, the theatrics were in full gear, with KISS’ Twitter sharing this video of Paul Stanley flying over the crowd during “Love Gun.”

Of course, KISS closed everything out with “Rock and Roll All Nite,” and from the fan-shot video below, it looks as though the confetti budget on the farewell tour is unlimited. Condolences to the arena crews that will have to clean all of this up every night.
