Kiss’s Three-Year World Tour
Marathon trek could well be the band’s last.
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
