Kiss Have Announced Their “Final” World Tour

Kiss no longer want to rock all night and party eve-ry day.

The legendary rockers performed their 1976 hit -- “Detroit Rock City” -- on America’s Got Talent before they shared the sad news.

“This is going to be our last tour,” they told the crowd.

“It will be the most explosive, biggest show we’ve ever done. People who love us, come to see us. If you’ve never seen us, this is the time. This will be the show.”

It’s not the first time KISS have announced they’re hanging up their boots and putting away the face paint -- so some fans are a little suspicious about this “final” world tour.

In 2000, Gene Simmons said “there just aren’t any more mountains to climb” when it came to touring their iconic back catalogue of hits.

“We want to go out in style with the people that put us here, the fans,” Simmons added.


Sure enough, just two years later, guitarist Paul Stanley was explaining why the members of Kiss were embarking on another tour.

"People change their minds, and in this case that goes along with being a living, thinking person,” he said.

“What one says one day with total commitment may at another time turn out not to be so. Am I doing this for the money or the fans? Both, and let's not forget I'm doing this for me."

At the end of the day, fans don't really seem to mind a little deception --especially if it means more opportunities to catch their favourite artists live.

After all, everyone from John Farnham to Cher to Elton John has announced more than one "farewell" tour.

Kiss will announce official dates for their 'End Of The World' tour on their website in the next few weeks.
