KISS guitarist and co-lead vocalist Paul Stanley has clarified the band will not disappear after their “End of The Road” tour.
“It’s important to note that this is the end of touring,” Stanley explained in a conversation with C-Ville weekly. “The band isn’t necessarily disappearing into thin air.”
He added, “It’s just reached a time where touring, and doing 100 shows in seven months, which is what we’ve done so far, is just… it’s just too demanding and time-consuming, when there’s other things to do in life.”
In a separate chat with The Daily Progress, Stanley said that he is already making plans for his time after the KISS tour ends.
“I can walk and chew gum at the same time,” he said, and confirmed that he recently completed work on the debut album from his R&B band Soul Station.
KISS commenced the “End Of The Road” tour in January last year in Vancouver. The last concert of the trek is scheduled to take place in New York City on July 17, 2021.
Formed in 1973, by Stanley, Gene Simmons, drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley, KISS now consists of Stanley, Simmons, and later additions Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.
In 2000, the band staged its first “farewell” tour.
The band has accumulated 23 gold and platinum albums so far, the most by any U.S. band.
