The first leg of KISS’ touring finale will include an Atlanta stop, albeit late in the run.
The band’s “End of the Road” world tour kicks off Jan. 31 in Vancouver and will wind its way across the country before an April 7 date at State Farm Arena. The first leg will wrap April 13 in Birmingham, Ala.
Tickets for KISS’ farewell - and we think for real this time! – are $29.50-$250.
KISS “Meet & Greet Experiences” will be available through kissonline.com at 10 a.m. Oct. 30; members of the KISS Army fan club can procure tickets beginning at 10 a.m. Oct. 31, also through kissonline.com.
Citi cardholders can access a pre-sale from noon Oct. 31 through 10 p.m. Nov. 2 through citiprivatepass.com. And finally, tickets to the general public will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 2 at livenation.com.
KISS announced in September during an appearance on “America’s Got Talent” that the band would soon embark on a final tour to put the exclamation point on their 45-year career.
In 2000-01, KISS performed “The Farewell Tour,” which, in fairness, turned out to be the final tour with the original lineup of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. But the band returned in 2003 for a co-headlining tour with Aerosmith and has remained steady road warriors.
The quartet of Stanley, Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer last performed in Atlanta in July 2014 on a double bill with Def Leppard at Lakewood.
In June, singer Stanley visited Atlanta to display and talk about his artwork at Wentworth Gallery at Phipps Plaza.
