KISS Announce Rescheduled Australian ‘End of The Road’ Tour Dates

Originally set to take place in late 2019, both illness and a global pandemic have seen KISS’ final Aussie trek pushed back to late 2021.

KISS will kick off their final Australian tour this November.


Just over 15 months on from the initial news that their Australian tour had been cancelled, hard-rock icons KISS have now announced new dates for their final tour of the country.

Having first announced their final world tour – aptly titled the ‘End of The Road’ tour – in late 2018, the veteran outfit began their last global trek in January of 2019, having planned a visit to Australia in November of that year. Unfortunately, the band’s final visit to Australia and New Zealand was unceremoniously cancelled just days before kick-off due to frontman Paul Stanley being stricken with a bad case of influenza.

While the band has assured fans the shows were just being postponed into the future, the advent of COVID-19 saw the band forced to reschedule the vast majority of their upcoming tour dates. Now, almost a year on from the last show they played, KISS are set to resume their tour in early June, with the group set to return to Australia in November.

Announcing rescheduled dates today, KISS are set to begin their last Australian tour on November 14th, performing in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, before wrapping things up with a show in Townsville in early December. While the planned shows remain very close to the band’s original tour dates, these rescheduled dates do feature one less Melbourne show than they did previously, while the band’s slated appearance at the Supercars Newcastle 500 is obviously no more, having been replaced by the Townsville show.

“There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s BLINDING!” Paul Stanley said in a statement accompanying the news. “We are finally coming back. The tour is now official and we will deliver nights that will go beyond all expectations. We are fired up and will count the days.”

“Until we see you stay safe and be ready for us,” added Gene Simmons. “We’re ready for you!”

Tickets to the upcoming dates are on sale to the public from Friday, March 5th, with pre-sales starting from today. Full details are available below.
