After Kiss embarked on its farewell tour in 2000, guitarist Paul Stanley described the shows as an attempt to "put Kiss out of its misery." The self-imposed retirement didn't stick, which is why—nearly two decades later—the face-painted heavy metal act is once again trying to stop rock 'n' rolling all night on its End of the Road Tour. With the band's two remaining original members (Stanley and figurehead Gene Simmon) in their late 60s, it's probably the right time to stop trotting around stages in heavy costumes and platform boots. It's (probably) your final chance to witness the tongue-wagging, explosions and sing-alongs of a Kiss concert—if you're in to that kinda thing, don't miss out.
