Gene Simmons & Vince Neil at MN State Fair/Image by Joe Bielawa

The Minnesota State Fair Grandstand played host to pyro-technic spectacle and good old classic rock and roll last night (8/29/12) as the Motley Crüe - KISS double bill lit up the crowd and the warm Twin Cities' air.

Pamela Muldoon, a social media marketing wizard and a friend of The LOON's for over 20 years, was in the crowd. She's a Super-Fan of both bands and has a passion for great music, so we asked her to give us an account of the fun.

Below, you'll find links to both of her show reviews AND seriously stunning photo galleries shot by our photographer Joe Bielawa.
