Iconic American rock band KISS have just announced new UK dates for their ‘End of the Road World Tour’ in 2023.
Known throughout the world for their outlandish makeup and stage outfits, the Hall of Famers were formed in New York City in 1973. They are considered pioneers of their genre and are one of the most influential rock bands of all time.
The ‘Love Gun’ singers are one of the most successful bands of all time, selling over 100 million records worldwide and producing 14 platinum albums, three of which have gone multi-platinum.
The band are ranked as the ‘ninth best heavy metal band of all time’ by MTV and the ‘3rd greatest live metal and hard rock band of all time’ by Loudwire. The four original members of the band Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss were inducted into the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Are KISS releasing any new music?
The last new music release from KISS came in 2012, in the shape of their 20th, and likely final, studio album ‘Monster’.
The album featured 12 tracks, including hits such as ‘Hell or Hallelujah’ and ‘Long Way Down’. On the week of its release, the record debuted at number three in the charts and sold over 120 thousand copies.
When speaking about the album to VH1 Network’s Dave Basner, lead vocalist Paul Stanley stated: “Monster is really the culmination of everything this band has been in the past and where we're going”.
As far as releasing new material is concerned, it seems all but confirmed that KISS will not release any more new music in the future, with frontman Paul Stanley commenting that he's not interested in producing any more music because it will “never compete with the past'' when speaking with NME.
What we know about the ‘End of the Road World Tour’ so far
The ‘End of the Road World Tour’ is going to be the band's final tour, and is one of the biggest and most spectacular string of shows that the music industry has ever seen.
The tour began in 2019, with Paul Stanley stating: “This is gonna be our last tour. It will be the most explosive, biggest show we've ever done” after the band performed on the 2018 finale of America's Got Talent.
The tour is now set to span almost five years, with the band playing over 180 shows across well over 100 cities, including UK dates at Utilita Arena Birmingham, The O2 Arena, AO Arena Manchester and Utilita Arena Newcastle and Download Festival.
With more new dates being added to the tour, the band's final performance will almost certainly be in New York and is not expected to be until 2024 at the earliest.
