KISS revealed that their final gig will be on July 17, 2021 in New York City. The specific venue hasn’t been announced yet. The announcement was made on stage during the band’s last indoor concert at the KISS Kruise. According to Paul Stanley, “We’ve been on the End of the Road tour, and people have said, ‘When is the last show?’So, we’re here to tell you that the end of the road comes to an end on July 17, 2021 in New York City.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the tour, Stanley said: “We can’t be running around for that much longer in 40 pounds of gear. There’s nothing maudlin about it. It’s a celebration with our fans around the world. We wanted to raise the bar again as to what a band can do live.
“That’s really what we’ve always done: we’ve always wanted to be the band we never saw. There are a lot of shows out there that have KISS DNA in them because they really weren’t shows of any magnitude before us.”
In a separate interview with Shawn Quinn from Florida radio station 95.7 The Hog back in June, Stanley was also asked about the possibility of a new album. To which he replied, “I can’t really see it at this point, but then again, I never thought I’d write a book, let alone two books. I don’t see it, but who knows?”
