Two years ago we sat down with Kiss’ lead guitarist Tommy Thayer in the lead up to the legendary rockers mammoth End Of The Road World Tour, with Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer slated to perform an iconic run of shows across Australia and New Zealand in 2019.

In what would have been the ultimate celebration for all the band have conquered over the past four decades, their intentions for a 2019 send-off tour were scuppered after guitarist Paul Stanley came down sick just days out from kick-off, breaking the hearts of their loyal Kiss Army.

Now, KISS have finally unveiled a run of rescheduled dates for their hotly anticipated End Of The Road tour this year. The ’70s rock icons are set to embark on their final tour down under this November, with the tour beginning in Perth on Sunday, November 14 and trekking over east to play Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane before finishing up in Townsville on Saturday, December 4.

The ‘End Of The Road’ tour, which began in January 2019, is undoubtedly the biggest and best KISS show ever (and that’s saying something), receiving incredible reviews from both diehard KISS fans and the media at sell-out shows across the globe. Supporting the band at various stops along the way will be a myriad of Australian rock groups, including OG grunge lords Tumbleweed, The Superjesus, Wolfmother and Dallas Crane.

“There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s BLINDING! We are finally coming back,” Paul Stanley expressed in a statement.

“The tour is now official and we will deliver nights that will go beyond all expectations. We are fired up and will count the days.”

KISS will perform two shows at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21. Tickets go on sale from 12pm local time this Friday (March 5) via Ticketek.
