Kiss - the End of the Road

Is this truly "The End of the Road" for Kiss? The American rock giants are currently undertaking their final world tour, with a series of highly-anticipated dates announced across Europe and Scandinavia in summer 2021. The legends are celebrating close to half a century of an enduring musical legacy that began in the early 1970s.

The band was established in 1973 with its original, and most renowned, line-up of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, lead guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss. Kiss quickly became famous for their high-octane concert performances and showmanship, an integral part of which was their custom outfits and elaborate and distinctive black and white facial make-up. Their first shows introduced the extensive pyrotechnics and flying rigs that would become the band's hallmark, earning them the hearts of rock fans from an early stage and ensuring that Kiss tickets would be a hot commodity thereafter.

The band's legend grew as the four members slowly established their own distinctive personalities, taking on alter egos based around their costumes and make-up. While the group would undergo a number of changes in personnel and direction, Simmons and Stanley would remain integral members of each incarnation.

Around a decade into their careers, Frehley and Criss had departed, and this sparked a key change of direction for the group, and a ceremonial "unmasking" and shedding of their trademark make-up. The band enjoyed huge commercial success in the 1980s, thanks to hits such as Crazy, Crazy Nights, which reached the UK top 5, and several successful albums.

In total the band has released over 60 singles as well as 20 studio albums and an equivalent number of live albums and compilations. Intriguingly the band has never enjoyed a number 1 hit, despite their extensive repertoire and worldwide sales totalling some 75 million records. They have also earned an impressive 30 gold-certified records and more than a dozen platinum albums across their expansive career.

A huge revival in the band's fortunes was spurred by the reuniting of the original line-up in 1996. The band's "Alive" world tour was their most successful to date, grossing almost 150 million dollars and featuring not only explosive live performances but a return of the group's iconic original look.

Despite the success, Frehley and Criss once again departed to be replaced by Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. This time however the make-up stayed on and the band continued to perform using its original caricatures. Whichever line-up took to the stage, the band earned rave reviews for their continued brilliance as live performers and showmen, with plaudits by the hundred for their concert experience.

In 2014 the band's original quartet was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a celebrating of four decades of greatness as both artists and touring sensations.

Tickets to Kiss Stockholm

After some 45 years of performances across the globe, the band announced their final worldwide extravanganza, the End of the Road tour, which would commence in 2019. Stanley suggested that this would be the group's biggest ever show, and reviews to date have backed that up.

The group will head to Europe for the final leg in the summer of 2022, with two dates planned for Sweden. On June 18th Kiss descend on Stockholm for a single night at the Tele2 Arena; this will give an opportunity for over 45,000 to buy tickets to Kiss for their only night in the nation's capital. The band return to the country on June 22rd for a single night at Gothenburg's iconic Scandinavium arena. Originally constructed in 1971, the venue has hosted numerous world-class musical and sporting events and this final Kiss date is set to be among the most spectacular of them all.
