Rock legends, icons, and kiss-tory-making music gods KISS are set to perform in Australia one final time this October. 

In a surprise announcement, the band revealed that they would perform their epic and monumental farewell show – THE FINAL CURTAIN – exclusively in Sydney on Saturday October 7th.

The band is currently touring the globe for the final time with their farewell tour The End of the Road, which originally visited in Australia late 2022. 

But after a national petition (which garnered an impressive 60,000 signatures) that passionate KISS fans created, imploring the rockers to play just one more final show in Australia, the band relented, and Australia became the only country to receive an additional last-ever show.

“You have made your voices loud enough that it was impossible for us not to hear you! We are overwhelmed by your petitions and calls for one last KISS so we are now announcing that The End Of The Road will detour one last time to Sydney for a final, bombastic farewell,” KISS frontman Paul Stanley said. 

“As unexpected as this is for us, we will make it unforgettable for all who share the night with us.”

After their first Australian tour in 1980, KISSteria well and truly took over Australia, creating what would become a decades-long connection between the band and their fans down under. 

They toured next in 1995, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2013. 

Their planned 2019 tour was cancelled just days before it was set to kick off due to illness and was rescheduled to 2021. Those dates were then cancelled due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. 

The tour was then rescheduled AGAIN to commence in August 2022.
