Go behind the scenes with Kiss on the End Of The Road tour


Later tonight, Kiss will kick off their End Of The Road tour in Vancouver, Canada.The band are preparing to hit the road one last time – with the rock icons calling the tour “the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t.”Announcing the tour in September last year, Paul Stanley said it would be Kiss’ “most explosive, biggest show we’ve ever done.”And to show the scale of what they’re pulling together, Kiss have released a 27-minute video from Vancouver’s Rogers Arena to show just what it takes to put on what promises to be an epic stage production.Kiss have brought along their own 80-strong road crew, who are joined by 120 local crew, to get everything ready for the Vancouver show.The film shows miles of cable, scores of boxes containing vital equipment, the massive lighting rigs, amps and more.We also get a glimpse of the band’s dressing rooms, the catering facilities, the backstage production team, Kiss’ technicians, Eric Singer’s brand new drum kit, a Kiss pinball table… and the band’s very own washing machine.Check out the full video below.A statement from Kiss about the tour said: “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. “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.”Earlier this month, Kiss confirmed that the Kiss Kruise would return – and will take place between October 30 and November 4 this year.Kiss End Of The Road 2019 North American tour datesJan 31: Vancouver Rogers Arena, BCFeb 01: Portland Rose Garden Moda Center, ORFeb 02: Tacoma Dome, WAFeb 04: Spokane Arena, WAFeb 07: San Diego Viejas Arena, CAFeb 08: Fresno Save Mart Center, CAFeb 09: Sacramento Golden 1 Center, CAFeb 12: Anaheim Honda Center, CAFeb 13: Glendale Gila River Arena, AZFeb 15: Las Vegas T-Mobile Arena, NVFeb 16: Los Angeles The Forum, CAFeb 19: Corpus Christi American Bank Center, TXFeb 20: Dallas American Airlines Centre, TXFeb 22: New Orleans Smoothie King Centre, LAFeb 23: Memphis FedEx Forum, TNFeb 26: Oklahoma City Chesapeake Energy Arena, OKFeb 27: Kansas City Sprint Center, MOMar 01: Milwaukee Fiserv Forum, WIMar 02: Chicago United Centre, ILMar 04: Minneapolis Target Center, MNMar 06: Sioux Falls Denny Sanford Premier Center, SDMar 07: Omaha CenturyLink Center, NEMar 09: Grand Rapids Van Andel Arena, MIMar 10: Moline mark Of The Quad Cities, ILMar 12: Louisville KFC Yum!
