Jaundice was originally supposed to end on July 17 this year
KISS has confirmed when their current ‘End of the Road’ world tour will end.
The band is currently in the middle of their long tour, which was originally scheduled to end on July 17 this year.
But with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and two of the band members already sick, the tour is likely to take longer to finish.
“I believe by the beginning of 2023 we will be finished,” said Paul Stanley ultimate classic rock, stating that the band would end their tour in New York. “It just feels natural to be in New York. That’s where the band started, and it was really the background for the band to come together and write these songs and play loft parties and clubs starting with an audience of maybe 10 people . Looks like we should go full circle.”
He also said that this would certainly be the band’s last tour to date.
“The fact is, physically, it’s incredibly demanding to do what we do,” Stanley explained. “Look, we played [recently] In Austin, an outdoor show, 100 percent humidity. We’ve been running for two-plus hours, not only with the guitar, but with the 30-plus pounds of gear I have. There’s a point where you go, ‘You know what? This is more of a challenge than I expected. And I only want to do it for as long as I can with a smile. “
He continued: “No idea about really changing our minds. It has nothing to do with personality or tension or differences or musicality in the band. It’s purely practical. You can play to the beat of the clock.” But in the end the clock wins.”
His latest comments come after both him and bassist Gene Simmons tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month, forcing the band to postpone several gigs.
They will continue their tour with a date in LA tonight (October 6).
Meanwhile, the band recently announced the 45th anniversary of the hit album Destroyer. It will release on November 19.
