KISS will kiss the tour life goodbye with 'Detroit Rock City' stop next year

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2018 at 9:54 AM

After 45-years of makeup and madness, KISS is hanging up their space armor.

After announcing the band's plans for a final tour on NBC's America's Got Talent last month, KISS finally dropped the details for the appropriately named "End of the Road" tour. The tour will kick-off in January and will carry
Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, and Eric Singer through until July. The farewell tour will include a visit to "Detroit Rock City" on March 13 at Little Caesars Arena.

As the latest rockers to head into rock retirement, insatiable sex-maniac Simmon's promised on his Instagram that his final tour will "have the most explosions, the most hits and be the loudest yet!"

"End of the Road" tickets ($29.50+) go on sale Friday, Nov. 2 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at

Just in time for Halloween, watch Gene Simmons give a KISS makeup tutorial on his daughter Sophie below.
