KISS will bring their End of the Road world tour to Australia in November 2019.

Gene Simmons alerted Australian fans to the tour during his solo tour in August. “All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in….. Unapologetic and Unstoppable,” said KISS.
