Rock n roll legends KISS kicked off their final and biggest global tour to date with three back-to-back sold out concerts of the END OF THE ROAD WORLD TOUR, starting in Vancouver, Canada on January 31.
KISS delivered a massive event each night thrilling the fans and critics alike. The show was full of the band’s long discography of hits with production second to none and lots of KISS’ trademark pyro.
The KISS Army responded in spades, with Epic Rights, KISS’ concert merchandiser confirming that KISS broke the record for the most merchandise sold at their first three shows by a rock band.
Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer delivered a killer set list featuring all the beloved KISS classics including ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’, ‘I Was Made For Loving You’, ‘Detroit Rock City’, ‘Love Gun’, ‘Shout It Out Loud’ and ‘Lick It Up’ that had fans salivating.
“After being treated to an opening trio of tunes that included Detroit Rock City, Shout It Out Loud and Deuce embellished with as much pyrotechnics as other bands might use for an entire show, the crowd at the opening night of the KISS End of the World Tour was right in the sweet spot that the New York City quartet has always been able to get them into.” Vancouver Sun
“The gluttonous evening of rock n roll excess was everything the Vancouver chapter of the KISS Army could have wanted.” Exclaim!
“They hit all the spectacular highlights. Gene breathed fire and spit blood; Paul ziplined across the audience to play a couple of songs from an airborne platform; Tommy Thayer’s guitar shot sparks; and Eric Singer’s drum set rose into the sky as he soloed.” Consequence Of Sound
“The End Of The Road” tour will continue traveling throughout 40+ North American cities before heading overseas to Europe, returning stateside in the summer and finishing the year here, saying an emotional farewell to devoted KISS Army fans as they go.
The Australian leg begins in Perth on 16 November 2019, moving through Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Supercars Newcastle 500 and Brisbane, finishing in Auckland for their only New Zealand show on 3 December 2019.
You only need to attend one KISS concert to see why their legacy has continued to grow, generation after generation and why KISS has proven for decades that they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll.
