KISS Add 75 More Dates To End Of The Road Tour – Including Final-Ever Show

It looks like KISS have revealed the date for their final-ever performance… and it’s happening in 2021.

Following this weekend’s KISS Kruise, it looks as though the legendary New York rockers have revealed a whopping 75 more End Of The Road tour dates – including their final-ever show.

The band look set to wrap up an incredible career in their hometown on July 17, 2021, with a full year of touring commencing before that. The dates haven’t been 100 per cent confirmed just yet, but reports from those who attended the cruise say that it was announced on video screens.

As well as touring Australia, Asia and North and South America in the run-up to that last 2021 date, KISS will be performing for the final time in the UK at next summer’s Download Festival alongside headliners Iron Maiden and System Of A Down.

“I’ve said it before, Download Festival audiences are the best,” says Gene Simmons. “They are up for whatever is thrown at them. KISS is going to come fully prepared to rock their world in 2020 to say Thank You for always showing up for us.”

“Download will be the culmination of 47 years of unapologetic bombast and spectacle,” continues Paul Stanley. “We will make this a fitting farewell to a country and its people whose music remains the blood in our veins.”
