“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,” said KISS.

While appearances from original members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley are not mentioned in today’s announcement, both Simmons and Stanley have discussed the possibility of their old band mates being involved in some fashion. Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 2 at 10 a.m. local times.
