KISS bass guitarist Gene Simmons was interviewed by ‘8 News Now Las Vegas’ recently, and he confirmed that they are returning to Sin City for their second residency after the event they participated in seven years ago.
You may know that KISS announced its second farewell tour named ‘End Of The Road’ following the ‘U.S Farewell Tour’ they did from 2000 through 2001. They started touring worldwide in 2018, but all their shows were rescheduled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The band will hit the road again at Xfinity Center, Mansfield, on August 18, 2021.
While the band members are doing rehearsals for their upcoming tour, KISS star Gene Simmons made a public appearance to announce that they will be playing at Zappos, Las Vegas, Nevada starting from late December. According to Gene, they will be there throughout February, before the Latin America leg of the ‘End Of The Road World Tour,’ which will start next year.
This will be KISS’ first ever show in Sin City following the ‘Kiss Rocks Vegas’ event they arranged during the ’40th Anniversary World Tour‘ in 2014. After two years, KISS gave nine live shows at The Theater at Virgin Hotels and released a live album and DVD/Blu-ray Disc of the shows.
Here is what KISS co-founder said in the interview:
“My favorite band is going to be at Zappos in Las Vegas starting December 27. That’s right, even through New Year’s. And we’ll be here through February. But in the middle of the KISS tour that’s going around the world.
To spend as much time as we do in Vegas and to live as close as we do, the idea of doing a residency and leaving our stage setup, as opposed to breaking it down nightly, was really appealing.”
