“We couldn’t pass up this opportunity,” Paul Stanley told the crowd in NYC’s Battery Park on Friday night, “Being from New York, we had to open up New York, so this is our way of saying welcome back to everybody.” Paul and the rest of KISS were in Battery Park to perform a short set as part of the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival screening of upcoming A&E documentary Biography: KISStory.
KISS played five songs — “Detroit Rock City,” “Shout It Out Loud,” Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Heaven’s on Fire” and “War Machine” — and while the set was short, they still brought the full KISS experience, with pyrotechnics, lazers, etc. “We don’t have a permit to make a long show,” frontman Stanley told the crowd, “so this is a little short.” He continued that it would be a “sampling before you get your big meal in August,” and you can watch video of KISS’ full Tribeca Film Fest performance below.
As to that full meal, KISS have now added more dates to the rescheduled last leg of their “End of the Road Tour,” which the band say will be their last. “Time marched on but we couldn’t,” say the band. “Now, the boots are on and we’re hauling an extra year’s worth of pyro, lights and spectacle. WE ARE BACK! We’re pumped and can’t wait to celebrate with our biggest, wildest and hottest show ever.” The new dates include shows in Toledo, California shows in Irvine, Mountain View, and Wheatland, plus Sparks, NV, Hidalgo, TX, and Florida shows in West Palm Beach and Tampa. Other rescheduled dates include shows in Atlantic City, Dayton, Milwaukee, Boise, Phoenix, Tulsa and more. All dates are listed below.
Tickets for the newly added dates go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 18 at 10 AM local time, with KISS Army presales starting Tuesday (6/15) at 10 AM local. All rescheduled dates are on sale now.
Biography: KISStory will air on A&E across two nights June 27 & 28. You can watch a trailer for that below.
