KISS have announced rescheduled dates for the European leg of their ‘End Of The Road’ tour.
The tour will get under way in Dortmund, Germany on June 01, 2022 and wrap up with a set in Amsterdam on July 21, with an extra set of new dates apparently coming soon. Tickets previously purchased for the postponed 2020 and 2021 shows will be valid for the rescheduled 2022 dates. The dates will coincide with KISS’ slot as Download Festival headliners in 2022.
The legendary rockers have previously spoken about the ‘End Of The Road’ tour, saying: “All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years.
“This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable.”
Paul Stanley recently spoke to Classic Rock magazine about next year’s Download slot, as well as the future of Kiss. “I sent Dave Grohl a photo of the finale of our last Download show [in 2015], and he called those scenes ‘insanity’.
“It looked like World War Three. There’s a lot to uphold, especially as we are at the end. We just can’t continue to do this for much longer. Though once it wasn’t, age is now a factor. Once upon a time it was about will, but now we are running around on stage wearing fifty pounds of gear. However, we will ensure that Download is mind-boggling.”
