UPDATE (1/19/22): Kiss’ final tour ever is still going — Wednesday, they announced a new run of U.S. dates on their last-ever trek: The End of the Road Tour. The tour has had its share of bumps in the road, with members of the band catching Covid-19 and their beloved guitar tech dying in the fall of 2021.

The run will include four rescheduled show dates, kicking off this May in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Dayton, Ohio; Hartford, Connecticut; and Raleigh, North Carolina. They’re also playing Daytona Beach, Florida’s Rockville 2022 Festival.

End of the Road Tour

May 11 – Milwaukee, WI @ American Family Insurance Amphitheater
May 12 – Dayton, OH @ Wright State University Nutter Center
May 14 – Hartford, CT @ Xfinity Theatre
May 17 – Raleigh, NC @ Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek
May 19 – Daytona Beach, FL @ Rockville 2022 Festival – Daytona International Speedway


Kiss have announced rescheduled dates for the North American leg of their End of the Road World Tour after postponing five shows due to band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons testing positive for Covid-19 in August.

Following a 10-day quarantine, doctors have advised the tour is safe to resume on September 9th at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California. The new dates will take place in October, however, due to routing and availability, the shows in Hartford, Connecticut, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Raleigh, North Carolina, have been postponed to 2022. The rest of the tour dates remain unchanged.

In late August, Kiss wrote on Twitter that Simmons had tested positive for Covid-19 with “experiencing mild symptoms” and that the band and crew “will remain at home and isolate for the next 10 days.”

Simmons’ positive Covid test came just days after singer Paul Stanley also caught the virus, forcing the band to postpone shows in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia. Kiss said in a statement that their entire band and crew are “fully vaccinated,” and that everyone has “operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows.”

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Simmons urged fans to get vaccinated against Covid-19, saying, “I would highly recommend for everybody to get two Pfizer or Moderna shots, please — for the rest of us. Even if you believe the Earth is flat, it’s not.”
