US theatrical rockers Kiss embarked on their farewell tour “End Of The Road” in January of 2019 but was forced to put it on hold last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tour was originally planned to end on July 17, 2021 in New York City but due to the pandemic has been extended to the end of 2022.

Longtime manager of the band Doc McGhee was recently a guest on Talking Metal podcast where he confirmed that the tour will last for the end of 2022 but even he doesn’t know yet when the band will be playing the final show of the tour.

Doc McGhee had the following to say about Kiss‘ plans for the “End Of The Road” tour below:

“We were supposed to end this year — actually, in July — but because of the COVID stopping us from doing the touring, it set us back a year and a half,” McGhee told Talking Metal in a new interview (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “So it looks like the last show of KISS as you know it, with Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley], will be some time at the end of next year. We don’t have a locked in date yet. Because of what’s going on, it’s very difficult for people to hold dates because we don’t even know if we’re gonna be able to play. So we’re trying to hold dates. But it will be next year.

“We wanna get through what we said. The guys wanted to play to everybody. It meant we’ll go to your town, big or small. We’re not the red-carpet band that you have to come out. We’ve always been the people’s band in the sense that the KISS Army that supported us for all these years, we go to all the little towns to play.”
