Paul Stanley Reveals What He Thinks Is The Real Reason Bands Do a Final Tour

In a recent interview with Chicago Tribune, KISS frontman Paul Stanley talked about their farewell tour “End of the Road” and some other topics.

During the conversation, he claimed that ‘most bands do a final tour because they hate each other‘.

Interviewer asked:

“You brought your 98 year-old dad to the show in L.A. a few weeks ago. Do you ever look at him and think, “I could keep going into my 90s”?

Paul responded:

“I didn’t bring him, he insisted on coming (laughs). … If we were a band in tennis shoes and jeans and t-shirts, yeah, we could do this into our 90s.

But we’re not, we’re KISS, and even though we make it look easy, we’re wearing between thirty and forty pounds of gear and running around for two-plus hours, so it’s important for everyone to realize that life is finite, and there is a expiration date for us.

It’s better to stop now than to kind of fizzle out. Making a passive decision is still a decision. If we were to finish a tour and not tour next year, and then the year after that, you’ve basically done the same thing, but that’s not KISS.

The band has never been better, we’ve never had more fun. Most bands do a final tour because they hate each other. For us, it’s the complete opposite.”
