Gene Simmons: Kiss Have 150 Cities to Play On Farewell Tour, Including “The Coldest Place On Earth”

Kiss have announced a huge bunch of EU dates on their global End Of The Road tour, but Gene Simmons has revealed that is part of an epic 150-city run.

Discussing the return of live shows – we hope – in 2021 on 95.5 KLOS (via Blabbermouth), the KISS man sounds incredibly confident that the band’s confirmed gigs will go ahead next year, explaining:

“We’ve already booked Europe outdoors. Most of the shows have already sold out. We start in summer. The vaccines are gonna be out there for everybody, oh, by January, February, March at the latest, but we’re gonna be out there a few months after that. And we’ve literally got 150 cities booked.”

As well as the amount of venues, Simmons adds that the group have plenty of surprises up their sleeves, too.

“We’ve got another 150 cities to go, and who knows how long, but some of the later ones are gonna be jaw-dropping,” he continues. “You can’t imagine what we’ve got planned – like, beyond… I said, ‘No. We can really do that?’ They said, ‘Yup. Yup.’ The political people said we can play there. And so there’s gonna be stuff that’s just gonna make you go, ‘That’s the coolest.’

“There’s one place that’s the coldest place on earth,” Gene teases. “And if you can imagine us playing there with even larger pyro than you’ve ever seen, ’cause there’s nothing around there. But that’s all I’ll say about it.”

Gene Simmons Is Being Sued For Sexual Assault

Another rockstar is in trouble. This time it is Gene Simmons being sued for sexual assault after a woman claimed he has acted inappropriately towards her during an interview.

TMZ reports that the woman says she interviewed Simmons in November at an opening of a Rock & Brews restaurant in San Bernardino, California.

According to the documents obtained by TMZ, the woman claims that during the interview, Simmons reached over and forcibly placed her hand on his knee.

Simmons then grabbed her hand again, commenting on how soft they were. After the interview, she touched her butt during a group photo.

Gene Simmons is yet to comment on the accusations.
