Gene Simmons: KISS Have 150 Cities To Play On Farewell Tour, Including The Coldest Place On Earth”

KISS will be performing at the coldest place on earth” on their End Of The Road tour, according to Gene Simmons…

KISS have already announced a bunch of huge European dates for their global End Of The Road tour, but Gene Simmons has revealed that is part of an epic 150-city run. 

Discussing the return of live shows – we hope – in 2021 on 95.5 KLOS (via Blabbermouth), the KISS man sounds incredibly confident that the band’s confirmed gigs will go ahead next year, explaining: We’ve already booked Europe outdoors. Most of the shows have already sold out. We start in summer. The vaccines are gonna be out there for everybody, oh, by January, February, March at the latest, but we’re gonna be out there a few months after that. And we’ve literally got 150 cities booked.”

As well as the sheer volume of venues, Gene adds that the group have plenty up their sleeves for the performances, too. 

We’ve got another 150 cities to go, and who knows how long, but some of the later ones are gonna be jaw-dropping,” he continues. You can’t imagine what we’ve got planned – like, beyond… I said, No. We can really do that?’ They said, Yup. Yup.’ The political people said we can play there. And so there’s gonna be stuff that’s just gonna make you go, That’s the coolest.’ 

There’s one place that’s the coldest place on earth,” Gene teases. And if you can imagine us playing there with even larger pyro than you’ve ever seen, cause there’s nothing around there. But that’s all I’ll say about it.”
