    After announcing last year that they’d be embarking on one final tour, KISS kicked off their “End of the Road” farewell trek at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada, last night (January 31st), playing a career-spanning set.

    In the days leading up to the tour launch, KISS got some free press and may have sold a few more tickets thanks to some back-and-forth headline-making accusations between singer-bassist Gene Simmons and former guitarist Ace Frehley.

    KISS hit the stage with the 1-2-3 punch of the classics “Detroit Rock City”, “Shout It Out Loud”, and “Deuce”, and played favorites like “Lick It Up”, “Love Gun”, and “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” along the way. The encore included their hit ballad “Beth” and their set-closing signature hit “Rock and Roll All Nite”. All told, the band played a total of 20 songs.

    According to a review by the Vancouver Sun, “Gene Simmons still barfs blood before ‘God of Thunder’ [and] Paul Stanley still has the same intro to ‘Cold Gin’ and prances around like a glam dandy.” The newspaper added that “the group is going out on a high note as this tour appears superior to the [2014] 40th Anniversary [tour].”
