We’ve heard this song before, but it seems genuine that KISS’ upcoming “End of the Road World Tour” will be exactly that.
The band announced the decision to pack up the pyro after a performance on Wednesday’s finale of “America’s Got Talent.”
"All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who've filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who've seen us and a last chance for those who haven't. KISS Army, we're saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we'll go out the same way we came in... Unapologetic and Unstoppable," the band said in a statement.
KISS hasn’t yet announced dates for this final run, but will update fans in the next few weeks on www.kissonline.com.
In 2000-01, KISS embarked on “The Farewell Tour,” which, in fairness, turned out to be the final tour with the original lineup of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. But the band returned in 2003 for a co-headlining tour with Aerosmith and has remained steady road warriors.
The band’s current members are Stanley, Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” is now as old as Kurt Cobain.
The signature hit by the rock ’n’ roll band Nirvana was released on Sept. 10, 1991. It’s the opening track and lead single from the group’s second album, “Nevermind.”
The song’s release 27 years ago heralded the grunge movement, which mixed alternative rock, punk and metal. It was Nirvana’s biggest hit and peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song spent 20 weeks on the Hot 100 chart after its debut on Jan. 11, 1992.
The video of the song, filmed in a dingy gymnasium with cheerleaders and a janitor dancing with his mop, begins with a distinctive guitar lick. It vaulted the Seattle-based band to iconic status, as fans chanted the song’s lyrics, “A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido.”
Cobain, the lead singer of the group, struggled with heroin addiction and depression. He was found dead at his Seattle home on April 8, 1994, and the King County Coroner determined that Cobain died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his head.
Cobain was 27.
Six more women are accusing CBS CEO Leslie Moonves of sexual harassment or assaults that occurred over the last 30 years, The New Yorker reported Sunday.Members of the board of the CBS Corporation have been negotiating with Moonves about his departure from the company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Update 7:31 p.m. EDT Sept. 9: Moonves has stepped down from his role at CBS, ending his 20 years with the network, CNN reported.
As part of the deal, Moonves will donate $20 million to organizations helping women’s equality.
Original story: The CBS board of directors is likely to announce the deal and Moonves may step down by Monday morning, several media outlets reported. CNN cited two executives with direct knowledge of the matter.
The new allegations include claims that Moonves forced the women to perform oral sex on him, that he exposed himself to the women without their consent and that he used intimidation and physical violence against them, The New Yorker reported.
In a statement to the magazine, Moonves responded to the new allegations, saying that three of the new accusers were participating in consensual sexual actions, The Hollywood Reporter said.
“The appalling accusations in this article are untrue," Moonves said in his statement. "What is true is that I had consensual relations with three of the women some 25 years ago before I came to CBS. And I have never used my position to hinder the advancement or careers of women."
One of the new accusers, television executive Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb, told The New Yorker that she filed a criminal complaint last year with Los Angeles police. However, police said that even though her accusations were credible, the alleged incidents occurred during the 1980s so the statute of limitations had run out.
The new accusations come six weeks after The New Yorker’s original article about accusations against Moonves, which was published on July 27.
come about six weeks after Farrow published his first New Yorker expose on Moonves on July 27.
