uDiscover Music previously reported that KISS are to head out on their final ‘End Of The Road’ Tour, but the legendary rockers have now confirmed the initial North American leg of the tour. Tickets for the shows go on sale to the general public on Friday, 2 November, at 10am local time.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will launch their End of the Road Tour on 31 January 2019 in Vancouver, B.C., at Rogers Arena and they go on to play an additional 43 dates throughout North America for their farewell excursion. You can see the full list of dates below.

“This time out is far beyond what we have done before, not just because of technology. It is because the meaning of this tour is so, so great because we have been an indelible part of people’s lives, but guess what — people have been an indelible part of our lives,” KISS guitarist Paul Stanley recently told Billboard. “A thank you is in order, but also one last time to live up to what everybody says we have been and what we are.”

“When we introduce ourselves for 45 years with you, [you] wanted the best, you got the best, the hottest band in the world. The bar is very high, maybe the highest. We’re in competition only with ourselves,” singer Gene Simmons added. “We don’t wish any ill will to anybody else, but we’re too busy being the most fabulous band on planet earth. Look at us. Just one look and you go ‘Wow.’”

The End of the Road Tour will include KISS band members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer for the multi-year run that promises dates until at least 2020. The current North American dates will hit major markets including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Boston, New York and Miami. The final North American date is scheduled for April 13 in Birmingham, Ala.

“One thing for sure is that this is the last tour. What goes beyond that is really hard to say,” Stanley says of what will happen to the band beyond their End of the Road dates. “The tour may go three years, but once we play your city, it is done. That is our big thank you.”

“We’re going to take it nice and slow because we are not like the wonderful bands who wear sneakers and T-shirts and show up with a guitar somewhere,” Simmons says, adding that there is nothing wrong with that. “For us to move anywhere, this is the 600,000-pound gorilla. We can’t move without having tractor trailers up the wazoo. We leave a big imprint and that’s how we like it.”
