KISS Announces Final Tour: "End Of The Road"

I was at the St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild preseason game at Wells Fargo Arena when I got a text from Bonnie Lucas.  KISS opened Wednesday night's "America's Got Talent."  Bonnie knows my favorite band in the world is KISS and wanted to make sure I didn't miss the performance.

The performance of "Detroit Rock City" is here -  right above the article that breaks the news:  my favorite band is launching a final world tour.

Now understand that KISS is the undisputed world champion of rock 'n' roll marketing -  they ALSO did a farewell tour in 2000! -  but THIS does feel like the end.   Gene Simmons turned 69 years old last month.

And, yes, Paul McCartney was 75 when I saw him earlier this year at Wells Fargo Arena -  but Paul never donned seven-inch heels and agreed to be suspended above the light rigging for a song.  I LOVE the spectacle and unashamed AUDACITY of a KISS show and suspect that the band will never settle for anything less.

So yes, I will see them when they come to Iowa or NEAR Iowa.  And they will forever be my favorite band -  having provided the soundtrack for my life from the first day I heard "Rock And Roll All Nite" in grade school.
