Paul Stanley hinted at it, and now Gene Simmons has made it concrete.
Kiss are planning a massive three-year world tour beginning in 2019.
Simmons explained to Sweden’s Expressen newspaper: “It will be a three year long tour, starting in January 2019,” adding: “We will go to all continents, though exactly where I can’t tell you now.”
This may well be the last hurrah for the band, Simmons revealed in 2017 that the band could bring the curtain down on their career with something that, in his words, “rocks the planet.”
Simmons has also said that: “We’re not going to be able to do this into our 70s – and I’m 67 now. But we’ll do it for a few more years, and when we think it’s time to go, we’ll go.
“We’ll do it the right way, with a big party. I’d like to think we’d do something that rocks the planet, something big and worldwide – and maybe free.”
So what happens when the curtain comes down for the last time?
Well, Simmons has his own idea’s when It comes to life after Kiss. He told Expressenthat he would love to write with members of Swedish superstars Abba. Simmons said: “I want to write songs with [Abba pianist] Benny Andersson,” he said. “I am sure that in a few hours at a hotel in Stockholm we could begin to shape something. An hour is all you need to find a feel for a song to begin with. I’d be sitting with a guitar and Benny at a piano.”
