“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 states.

The group has also announced that their 8th Annual KISS Kruise will set sail once again from Miami, October 31st-November 5th, aboard Norwegian Jade with stops in Key West, Florida and Nassau, Bahamas. KISS Kruise VIII will kick off after a sail away toast by the legendary band, sponsored by Elite Beverage International’s Tequila Comisario, to commence the cruise. Tequila Comisario is the official sponsor of this cruise event and the featured tequila in the commemorative and collectible drink cups that honor a different KISS band member each day of the five-day cruise.

Members of the KISS Army-turned-Navy for the event will be treated to a celebration of the formative decades that made KISS the hottest band in the world. From KISS’s electrifying Stardust Theater shows and engaging activities with each member of the band to autograph sessions with artists from the supporting lineup and much more, the eighth adventure promises to be high on entertainment value and nostalgia!

Known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll.
