Paul Stanley Says KISS Has An Expiration Date But It Has Nothing To Do With Members Not Liking Each Other
KISS frontman Paul Stanley opened up about the band’s ‘End of the Road’ tour during an interview with The Pit, and apparently, the reason behind the band’s decision to not continue touring is not about the band members not liking each other, it’s about the fact that there must be an end to everything.
As many of you know, the ‘End of the Road World Tour’ is going to be the last tour of KISS which started on January 31, 2019, and is currently continuing, however, most of the shows that were supposed to take place in 2020 were postponed into this year due to the restrictions and precautions against the coronavirus pandemic.
During numerous interviews, band members continuously revealed that the decision to end their touring career was made because of the fact that touring has become harder due to the age factor since all the members are near or over 70 years old now. Furthermore, the band has accomplished numerous successes throughout its career and managed to prove itself with a career that spans over 48 years including 24 studio albums, 35 tours.
KISS frontman once again opened up about the reason why the band preferred to call it quits after the ‘End of the Road’ tour during a recent interview, revealing that it has nothing to do with the band members disliking each other, or being tired of each other.
Furthermore, Paul Stanley stressed the fact that everything has an expiration date, therefore, it’s inevitable for KISS to come to an end someday and the band decided to end their touring career by their own choice.
Here is what Stanley said:
“Look, part of the reason and the vast majority of the reason that we’re calling it quits is that there’s only so long you can carry 40-50 pounds of gear around running around on stage. It has nothing to do with people not liking each other or people being tired of doing this.
The fact is, hey, you can only do this for so long. If you took, I guess, Elvis and crossed him with Superman, maybe that’s what we’re doing, but it does have an expiration date, so to speak.”
