Paul Stanley says the KISS farewell tour will wrap up late in 2022, and then that’s it.

“The fact is that, physically, it’s incredibly demanding to do what we do . . . We’re running around for two-plus hours, not only with guitars, but I’ve got 30-plus pounds of gear on. There’s a point where you go, ‘You know what?  This is more challenge than I want.’  And I only want to do it as long as I can do it smiling.”


He adds, quote, “You can play beat the clock, but ultimately the clock wins.”

But both Paul and GENE SIMMONS have said KISS could continue without them.  And Paul hasn’t changed his mind.  Quote, “Kiss has a life of its own.  I couldn’t stop Kiss if I wanted to.  The band is so much more than music.”
