Destroyer at London's Ribfest

Destroyer brought their incredible Kiss tribute show to London's Ribfest, July 30th. Having seen the band play at Kitchener's Rock and Rumble event the prior weekend, it was an easy decision to get on the 401 and head to London.


The longer set called for more songs, which the guys did a fantastic job selecting. Including Michael Moodrey (Spaceman) doing an impressive version of Ace Frehley's 'Shock Me', complete with guitar solo.

Both Ian Kurz (Starchild) and Moe Rotondi (The Demon) were in top form, interacting with the large audience at London's Victoria Park.

Michael Chichkan (Catman) excelled again during 'Black Diamond'. He portrays Peter Criss amazingly well.


The stage included a Kiss logo lighted up behind Chichkan. It added that special touch that was lacking in Kitchener, (due to time restraints).

As they ran through songs from the vast Kiss discography, it was great to hear some of my personal favorites. They were in top form, and the crowd, including many children, loved it.

During, 'Rock & Roll All Nite', they invited some of the audience up to the stage with them. There were kids with Kiss masks as well as a tropical bird on its owner's arm enjoying the spotlight, dancing and singing along with the band.



As they did in Kitchener after their show, they generously waited around and allowed everyone to meet them, shake hands, ask for autographs and pose for photographs. Once again solidifying their spot at the top of the Kiss tributes list.

It was a great show, and we all had an amazing time seeing these guys perform. If you still haven't checked them out, be sure to follow them to find out where and when they are playing next.
