KISS Announces “End Of The Road” World Tour Exclusively On AGT

It was only a short while ago that I posted about the legendary KISS not only performing on the NBC hit show “American’s Got Talent”, but also that they briefed the world about their “The End Of The Road” World Tour”. That posting can be gleaned HERE if you missed it and since the clip of the song is there along with the discourse between Tyra and Paul Stanley, you’ll want to click that link. Now the Official Press has hit the mailbox and since I never mind more KISS content here on PiercingMetal, have culled this together along with a number of the photos they provided. Check it out.

The Press Release:
After an epic and storied 45 year career that launched an era of rock n roll legends, KISS announced exclusively on NBC’s America’s Got Talent tonight that they are hanging up their 9-inch tall touring boots. 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. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide have toured to nearly every city on the planet and played every venue imaginable. Having played for Kings & Queens, for U.S. veterans, and for millions of devoted KISS Army fans, they will play their final shows as part of the multi-year END OF THE ROAD WORLD TOUR. Dates have yet to be announced but KISSonline.com will have all the updates in the weeks to come.

The Press Release:
The Contortionist have announced The Reimagined Tour today, which will feature two dynamic sets, one with a full production, and a second, intimate second set. The whole show will feature over two hours of new, old, and reimagined music spanning the band’s entire catalog. INTERVALS will be supporting.

“The Rediscovered concept was born from a desire to escape and redefine the rules of a show,” says keyboardist Eric Guenther. “We want to include our fans in an experience reflective of The Contortionist’s wide range of dynamics, not only on the scale of heaviness or intensity but in tone and texture.”

“Our goal is to invite the listener closer and show ourselves in a fresh new way for our fans who have evolved with us and embraced our sonic exploration over the years. This is an opportunity to ‘pull out all the stops’ and integrate the crowd into the changing aura of the room as we dig deep, reimagine, and give ever-echoing life to our music.”
