KISS will resume their “End of the Road” farewell tour this August, after being sidelined due to the pandemic. Not only will the rock legends play shows that were rescheduled from last year, they’ve also added a slew of new dates.
The tour kicks off August 18th in Mansfield, Massachusetts, and runs through an October 9th show in Tampa, Florida. Among the 30 shows are eight newly added dates, including three consecutive California gigs in September.
“Time marched on but we couldn’t,” stated KISS in a band statement. “Now, the boots are on and we’re hauling an extra year’s worth of pyro, lights and spectacle. WE ARE BACK! We’re pumped and can’t wait to celebrate with our biggest, wildest and hottest show ever!”
David Lee Roth had been supporting KISS on the tour before it came to a halt in March 2020. The Van Halen singer was initially announced as part of the rescheduled dates, but the latest update didn’t mention his involvement.
KISS recently made a return to the live stage by playing a five-song set this past Friday at New York City’s Battery Park as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. The performance came after a screening of their upcoming A&E documentary Biography: KISStory, which will get a two-night premiere on January 27th and 28th.
See KISS’ updated “End of the Road” U.S. tour itinerary below. Tickets for the rescheduled gigs are already on sale via Ticketmaster, with the new shows going on sale this Friday (June 18th) at 10 a.m. local time.
