KISS co-founder and the current fronting member of the band, Paul Stanley, was recently interviewed by Cville’s Erin O’Hare, and he gave away some untold details about their End of The Road World Tour.
As you might read the statements of Paul right below, he indicated that he loves all of his songs but there are other things to do in life and they didn’t want to miss their chances.
Erin O’Hare of Cville asked this:
“This is your last tour. What song will you be happy to never play again?”
Paul Stanley made an honest statement:
“I’m thrilled with every song we play. My point of view is, if you’re tired of playing a song, it’s probably not a good song. Some of these songs come from 45 years ago, or even longer, and they’ve stood the test of time because they’re that good. And for me to not give them the respect that they deserve, would be me being undeserving of those songs.
I’m thrilled to play “Rock & Roll All Nite.” I’m thrilled to play “Love Gun.” I’m thrilled to play “God of Thunder,” “Detroit Rock City,” and on and on and on. So, those songs are rallying cries for us and our audience.”
Also, Paul Stanley called their tour as a victory lap, and he thinks that any band members will regret the choice of their retirement.
Here is the rest of the statement:
“Our connection to our audience is so strong because we never lose sight of wanting to please them. And on this final tour, this is the ultimate KISS show. It’s bombastic. It’s over two hours of all the songs you want to hear. It’s a unique opportunity to know that this is the last time.
Many times in life, we all find ourselves losing someone, or losing something, and saying, “If I had only known, I would have done something different.” Well, instead of going out with a whimper, we’re going out with a bang! And this is a victory lap where we all get together—because it’s like a congregation of everyone cheering for what we’ve accomplished. And by “we,” I mean us and the fans.”
