"This will be the ultimate celebration".
KISS have confirmed that they will embark on one final tour, before hanging up their iconic costumes.
As they appeared on America’s Got Talent yesterday evening, the rock titans performed ‘Detroit Rock City’ and addressed speculation over their future.
“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t”, the band confirmed.
“KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable.”
The band are yet to announce farewell dates, but they’ll reportedly have updates in the coming weeks.
The farewell jaunt was first touted earlier this year, after the band tried to trademark the phrase ‘The End Of The Road’, to be used in connection with “live performances by a musical band”.
Speaking to Swedish newspaper Expressen, Gene Simmons confirmed that the glam metal veterans would return in the new year with the “most spectacular tour ever”. He added that it would also take in “all continents”.
He later added: “Let me put it bluntly: One day we are going to stop and do the last show. I don’t know when that is… I still look stunning in real life.”
