Back in November, the legendary KISS announced what appeared to be most of their last dates ever on their “End Of The Road” World Tour. I shared that with the readership HERE in case you missed it. Now it’s time to learn about the bands next high seas adventure on “The KISS Kruise”. Read on.
The Press Release:
The most popular Gold Record Award winning American group of all time and iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Famers KISS have once again partnered up with the industry leaders in music festivals at sea, Sixthman to announce the upcoming voyage of The KISS Kruise X.

The Press Release:
YOSHIKI appeared as a surprise guest last week (Dec. 11) during the Tokyo Dome performance of KISS’s “End of the Road World Tour.” He shocked the audience by performing piano and drums for two songs during the encore of KISS’s only Tokyo show on the band’s “Final Tour Ever.” YOSHIKI will also perform with KISS at their Osaka performance at the Kyocera Dome on December 17, 2019.
YOSHIKI – composer, classically trained pianist, rock drummer, and leader of the rock band X JAPAN – was welcomed to the stage by KISS vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley. The two men embraced before YOSHIKI sat at the piano to perform “Beth,” KISS’s highest-charting single in the U.S., prompting screams of excitement from the audience that shook the stadium.

And now for something completely different. As I recently reported….KISS Singer Paul Stanley “The Starchild” has been ill with the flu and is recovering but this found the band cancelling their Australian Tour (discussed HERE). Resultant of this, the chance to experience a very different kind of KISS concert has surfaced…..read on.
The Details: Welcome to “Shark Rock City,” where KISS will perform a live set off the southern coast of Australia to entice sharks, who love the low-frequency sounds of rock and roll. This once-in-a-lifetime ocean concert takes place on November 18, 2019, in Port Lincoln, where you’ll board a boat at 6:30 AM and cruise along the coastline looking for birds, dolphins, and other wildlife. For the main event, you’ll head out to the deep waters of the Indian Ocean—one of the biggest feeding grounds for great whites.
During the recent KISS Kruize, “The Hottest Band In The World” KISS announced the date of their final show ever to the fans who were on the high seas with them. Since no additional information or a press release was available at the time, I waited until now for more scoop to share with the masses and here we go. The End Is Night…..in a little under two years. Read on.

Over the last few days we’ve had a whole lot of tours announced such as Ozzy Osbourne, Alter Bridge, Dance Gavin Dance, UFO, Tool and the Black Crowes. Instead of linking you to each of them directly, I’m going to recommend that you just open up the full Tours and Festivals Category since it will keep you reading for quite a bit of time. Sadly, among the announcements come the occasional cancellation and this was found with the legendary KISS who had to cancel their Australian tour due to Paul Stanley’s illness. Read on down below for the Official Statement and the affected shows.
The Press Release:
Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG Live today announced that the KISS Australian tour, due to commence next Tuesday, has been cancelled due to illness. KISS and both promoters are absolutely gutted by the news and sincerely apologize to fans. Earlier this week it was announced that U.S doctors had advised Paul Stanley to rest due to a bad case of influenza, prompting the rescheduling of the tour’s first show in Perth to the end of the run and the cancellation of New Zealand. It was hoped the extra few days rest would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery so the tour could proceed as planned. However unfortunately this has not occurred. Stanley has an additional infection in his throat requiring complete vocal rest and medication for at least two weeks and possibly longer.
