Gene Sim­mons has re­vealed that Kiss are plan­ning a world tour that’s ex­pected to run for three years. Though the bassist/vo­cal­ist didn’t state so di­rectly, it’s likely that this new jaunt will mark the band’s swan­song.

Sim­mons told Swe­den’s Ex­pressen news­pa­per: “It will be a three-year-long tour, start­ing in Jan­uary of 2019. We will go to all con­ti­nents, though ex­actly where I can’t tell you now.”

Last year Sim­mons told Glas­gow Live: “When we think it’s time to go, we’ll go. We’ll do it the right way, with a big party. I’d like to think we’d do some­thing that rocks the planet, some­thing big and world­wide – and maybe free.”

While talk­ing to Ex­pressen, Sim­mons voiced a de­sire to col­lab­o­rate with pop giants ABBA. “I want to write songs with [pian­ist] Benny An­der­s­son,” he said.

“I am sure that in a few hours at a ho­tel in Stock­holm we could be­gin to shape some­thing. An hour is all you need to find a feel for a song to be­gin with. I’d be sit­ting with a guitar, and Benny at a pi­ano.” DL

Are Gene and co Kiss-ing goobye?
