In a big move, rock band Kiss has sold off their name, logo, and everything that represents them to Pophouse Entertainment, the company known for ABBA’s avatar show. The deal also includes a big chunk of their music catalog and publishing rights, all for a whopping $300 million.

Gene Simmons, the bassist, said this deal means Kiss won’t be touring anymore. Instead, Pophouse Entertainment plans to use fancy technology to create a Kiss avatar show in the U.S., just like what they did with ABBA.

The Kiss avatar show is expected to kick off in 2027, but they haven’t said which city yet. Simmons seems pretty excited about it, saying the technology will make them look like superheroes.

The CEO of Pophouse Entertainment, Per Sundin, says they want to keep the Kiss legacy alive and make it even bigger for newer fans. This deal also gives them control over Kiss’ music rights, both for their recordings and the songs they’ve written.

Fans got a sneak peek of what’s to come during Kiss’ farewell tour. At their last show in December 2023, they projected digital versions of the band on giant screens, performing one of their hits.

As Kiss enters this new chapter with Pophouse Entertainment, it looks like the music scene is in for some big changes. With technology taking center stage, Kiss’ music and image are set to reach even more people, ensuring their place in music history for a long time.
