PostSubject: KISS coming to the "End of the Road?"   Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:00 pm

Could this be the beginning... of the end?

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/is-it-the-end-of-the-road-for-kiss/

The KISS corporation filed a trademark application to apply the term "End of the Road" to as-yet-unspecified "entertainment services," including "live performances by a musical band."

Needless to say, the KISS fanboys are already going berserk on social media.

"OMG! It's the final FINAL tour! I know a guy who knows a guy who knows Gene's pool boy's cousin, and HE sez he heard that it's gonna be ALL the surviving members on stage, past and present, including Vinnie Vincent and Ace and Peter, and they're gonna play one big show that lasts for seventeen hours and blah blah blah..."

(I exaggerate slightly for humorous effect but that's pretty much what some of the posts sounded like.)

Of course, this could just be the KISS guys staking a claim on that tour name to keep it "on hold" so nobody snipes it till they're ready, but I guess we'll see.

I doubt it's a publicity stunt.

- Gene is 68 years old. Any sort of final tour would take him to 70.
- Paul is 66 years old, has younger kids than Gene, and is into his painting and his soul music band
- If they're trademarking "End Of The Road", they're gonna wrap it up with a huge 2-year world tour, milk the hell out of it, and be gone

It may have been a publicity stunt 20 years ago, when they were all under 50 years old...but not now.

Yeah I think it truly will be the "End Of The Road". Well, they had a hell of a run. We got a lot of good music out of them.

Gene has figured out that a lot of bands are getting old and wants to cash in on it. Unless he gets paid none of them will be allowed to quit! lol!

I remember they actually had a "Farewell Tour" back in 2000, but it was later revealed it was only the last time the original lineup would be touring together.

Regardless, with so many famous performers announcing that this is going to be their farewell tour already in 2018, this may very well be known as "The Year of the Farewell Tour".

Where Kiss is involved I do not believe any of this "last tour" stuff.

I don't doubt the end of the road is near, KISS have had a great run and they may want to hang up their platform boots. But til they make a formal announcement I won't believe a thing.

I cant stand Kiss, Paul and Gene need to fade into obscurity

Ace IMO was the best thing to come out of that band

Well, Gene did say that "rock is dead".

It's only fitting that he lay his own band to rest...

What is the last decent album they released? I'd say Revenge, and that is over 25 years ago. And those two imposters wearing Ace and Peter's makeup is beyond lame. At least Eric Carr and Vinnie Vincent had their own identity/character.

I could see KISS "retiring" the costumes and grand stage shows and just scaling things back to the 4 of them going on stage in smaller venues and maybe playing deeper tracks without all the bells and whistles. Sorta like they've been doing on the cruises and conventions.

I could see them being replaced by lifelike robotic duplicates, ala "Kiss Meets the Phantom."

...unless that's already happened? (looks around nervously...)

During an appearance on "America's Got Talent" season 13 finale earlier tonight (Wednesday, September 19), KISS confirmed that it will embark on its "farewell" tour, dubbed "One Last Kiss: End Of The Road World Tour", in 2019. The news was delivered in trademark larger-than-life KISS style with a blistering performance of "Detroit Rock City", proving why the band is known as one of the most iconic live performances that simply can't be missed.

Said KISS frontman Paul Stanley: "This is gonna be our last tour. It will be the most explosive, biggest show we've ever done. People who love us, come see us. If you've never seen us, this is the time. This will be the show."

KISS added in a statement: "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."

How can it REALLY be the end?

They haven't franchised yet or painted up tribute band guys to play the roles of Gene and Paul, while they sit at home and collect the cash?

I may be a Kiss fan boy but even I have to admit this is way overdue.

Watch for "The Search For Kiss 2.0," a reality series hosted by Eddie Trunk, to premiere shortly after the end of this tour.

Can't they just hire younger band members, paint their faces and keep going forever?

You could have a female band member. And a black guy for diversity.

I don't believe it, just more marketing from the boys.

I'm tending to believe them this time. I think the current incarnation and look of KISS as we know it now will cease after this tour, which is supposedly going to last 3 years, by which time Gene will be well into his 70's. That Demon costume must weigh a ton.

I don't believe they'll go away completely though. They'll continue to perform, either as KISS or solo stuff, but without the costumes and stage effects. It's time to put all that stuff to rest. Until they hire 4 new people to take up the roles and present it as "The Live KISS Experience".

Time for fans to jump ship and support "Vinnie Vincent's KISS featuring Robert Fleishmann and 4 electric songs".
