Kiss frontman Paul Stanley says that the band will embark on its "biggest tour" ever next year.
Appearing on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Friday, Stanley said; "A major KISS tour, starts at the end of January. It hasn't been announced yet, so don't tell anybody. Breaking news. This will be the biggest tour we've done, the biggest show we've done.”
Rumors of KISS's last hurrah kicked up a few of months ago when it was discovered that the band was attempting to trademark the phrase "The End Of The Road." An application from KISS was filed on February 8 to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, which — should it be accepted — means that the band could use it in connection with "live performances by a musical band." As it stands now, no official farewell tour has been announced.
As most fans remember, Kiss already embarked on a "Farewell Tour" back in 2000. That jaunt, which was the last to feature the original lineup of Stanley, along with guitarist Ace Frehley, drummer Peter Criss, and bassist Gene Simmons, and played 142 shows over five legs, covering North America, Japan, and Australia.
