KISS Adds Dates to Farewell Tour

KISS: End of the Road Tour

KISS has added a handful of dates to the final leg of their North American “End of the Road” tour. The farewell run, which was launched in 2019 and put on hold during the pandemic, will be ending the iconic rock band’s career with two final shows at Madison Square Garden in December.

In a new interview with The Sunday Project in Australia (as transcribed by Blabbermouth), Gene Simmons spoke on the group’s decision to call it a day.

“Well, look, at a certain point Mother Nature takes over no matter what your plans are. And at a certain time you’ve gotta have the dignity and pride but also the love and admiration of your fans to know when it’s time to call it quits,” he said. “We’ve all seen boxers that stay in the ring too long, and we’ve all seen bands that stay on the stage too long. So, I’m still looking pretty damn good. But that’s not the point. The point is the physical nature of what we do is gonna limit how long we do it. And we remember, we introduce ourselves with ‘You wanted the best. You got the best. The hottest band in the world.’ I don’t wanna be in one of those bands where the fans just say, ‘Oh, you should have seen them back in 1804 when they were really rocking.’ Right here, right now, either be a champion or get off the stage. So we’re gonna quit while the quitting’s good, while we’re on top. And gratefully, I don’t know how to verbalize what an amazing journey it’s been, and it’s only due to the fans. Without them, I’d be asking the next person in line if they’d like some fries with that. Don’t kid yourself.”

The new dates on the schedule include a stop in Crandon, Wisconsin, on September 1st and shows in Cincinnati and Cleveland on October 19th and 22nd, respectively. See below for a full list of tour dates.
