KISS is coming to Dubai

KISS is coming to the Coca-Cola Arena on October 13 as part of their last-ever tour: ‘End Of The Road’. The band’s line-up includes two original members, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Tommy Thayer.

The band last played in Dubai at a huge New Year’s Eve concert in December 2020, where they headlined at Atlantis The Palm. This gig broke two Guinness World Records, as KISS played and streamed to a global audience of two million with more than 500,000 live streams.

According to lead guitarist Paul “Starchild” Stanley in an interview with Esquire, when the band was last in Dubai, they set the swimming pool at Atlantis on fire. “It was a New Year’s Eve show but it was in the midst of Covid. We were literally locked in the hotel, as were the rest of the guests and it was totally surreal.”

The ‘End Of The Road’ tour was actually supposed to begin years ago, but the band hit a snag due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Covid interrupted it all, so we actually should have been done a few years ago, but it’s been fantastic to continue touring and playing live. Although now it’s getting mighty close to the actual end of it—our final ever show in December in New York,” said Stanley.

There’s no other band like KISS. We know it, and even KISS knows it. According to Stanley, “People ask me if there is a ‘modern-day KISS’ and, frankly, the answer is ‘no’. There are some great bands and acts out there doing great things – like the Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift – but there’ll only ever be one KISS.”

This is exactly why you don’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. Stanley says this is the biggest show they’ve ever done, and it’s going to be the best one. “We know what we’re doing, and we’re going out with our fists up in the air. It’s a victory lap at the Olympics,” he said.

The band wrote on their website: “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.”
