Kiss: A Grand Finale or a Sneak Peek Beyond the ‘End of the Road’?”

Kiss: A Grand Finale The band first made their name in the New York rock scene fifty years ago, and since then, they have given the world hits like “Detroit Rock City,” “Crazy Crazy Nights,” and “Beth,” in addition to thrilling live performances that feature bloodshed, fire-spewing, pyrotechnic artistry, and cartoonish stage makeup.


During an interview with music writer Joel Selvin, Linda Ronstadt, a well-known author of books about rock musicians, said of the group, “Their expertise has elevated them to the top completely woven into the literary fabric, her collection boasts gems like ‘The Grateful Dead’ and ‘Sly and the Family Stone,’ rendering it entirely distinct.”

Paul Stanley, the band’s co-founder, rhythm guitarist, and singer, said in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock that it has nothing to do with musicality, dissent, conflict, or personalities. It’s all about being realistic. This is how the band has pragmatically wrapped up fifty years. They recognize that, like turning an hourglass, the hourglass ultimately wins out.

The city has clearly changed in the days preceding this historic event, with pizza boxes, metro cards, and taxis bearing themes. The New York Rangers held a KISS Game Night on Wednesday, complete with Kiss-themed events and “Limited-Edition KISS x Rangers Merchandise.” On Thursday, the band performed at the lighting ceremony of the Empire State Building. Kiss was honored with a performance by the Empire The state is brightly colored, with blue, green, purple, red, and silver lights.

Even with all the celebrations, saying goodbye to Kiss can’t just mean giving him one last kiss. The group had gone on their last “farewell tour” more than two decades prior. They took a short break before starting to tour again in 2003. From then on, live performances and album releases went on.

Members of the band have alluded to possibly continuing it after Saturday’s Madison Square Garden show in interviews. The goal for co-frontman Gene Simmons and Stanley is to continue performing in some capacity within the confines of their individual solo projects.

With the recent comebacks of artists such as Cher, Steve Miller, and The Grateful Dead, rock critic Selvin asserted, “No one ever says goodbye for real.” “This is a show business plan. You give a bow. There is, however, always an encore.”

Selvin points out that musicians frequently make a comeback after retiring because the increased demand from fans allows them to command a high fee. For example, the pop-punk group Blink-182 is reportedly earning four times as much on their current reunion tour as they did on their previous one in 2009, according to Far Out magazine. (The band announced in 2005 that they were taking a “indefinite hiatus,” but they only got back together four years later.)

As Selvin notes, “There comes a time to step back in the sanctuary of personal life.”. For a while, you want to blend into the shadows, but as demand increases, you have to return.”In 1999, Steve Miller broke up with his band. All he was tired of. He also spent six years in prison.

When he reformed his band in 2005, his value abruptly increased and there was increased interest in seeing him.”

Amidst all of this, some musical pursuits never really come to an end. The Rolling Stones, for instance, have another North American tour scheduled for 2024. The group has revealed more tour dates.

Selvin believes Kiss’s story is far from over.

In Selvin’s perspective, “In the farewell tour playbook, bidding adieu to every venue is a must, sometimes necessitating a double farewell.” “Here’s to hoping that updates of Kiss gracing the stage will keep rolling in. Their recent ‘End of the Road’ might have been a conclusive chapter rather than a final goodbye.”

Whether this is the end or not, Kiss’s legacy will surely live on and leave a lasting impression on the rock and roll industry.

It’s all about being realistic. This is how the band has pragmatistically wrapped up fifty years. They recognize that, like turning an hourglass, the hourglass ultimately wins out.
