When I was in primary school, the other class in our year were obsessed by KISS. The walls of their classroom were literally covered in pictures of the band drawn by the kids, some of whom were really good.
I suspect their teacher, Miss Syme who was really cool, must have been a fan. Our teachers, Mrs Shirlaw and Miss Curry, lovely as they were, were much more likely to be into Vera Lynn!
As a ten year old, I must admit they scared me a little, and I’m not sure I’d have listened to them even if I could have looked them up on spotify without being burnt at the stake for witchcraft.
But their iconic look has stuck with me, and though I’ve never been a massive fan of metal or theatrical rock, I did enjoy their music once I finally got a chance to listen to them, and I reckon they would put on an incredible show.
If you’re a massive fan, you’ve probably already got your tickets. Otherwise if you’re thinking of going to see them, do it – It’s now or never – this is their final tour!
Here are the details:
After an epic and well documented 45-year career that launched an era of rock n roll legends, KISS announced that they will launch their final tour ever in 2019, appropriately named END OF THE ROAD. Tickets go on sale on 02 November at 10am at LiveNation.co.uk.
KISS are offering VIP experiences. Visit www.kissonline.com for more information.
Known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, have said this tour is devoted to the millions of KISS Army fans.
“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable,” said KISS.
