KISS promised that their End of the Road farewell tour would last more than a year, and they’ve kept their word with the announcement of two dates in 2020.
Bakersfield KISS fans, this is good news for you. The dates are close by -- March 4th in Los Angeles at the Staples Center, and March 6th in Oakland at the Oracle Arena.
These shows were originally scheduled for next week but were pushed back due to “unforeseen scheduling issues."
This second leg of their North American tour is in Houston tonight and will now end on Saturday in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The tour will resume in two months on November 16th in Perth, Australia, and will have them out until December 19th in Nagoya, Japan.
