Classic rock icons, KISS, recently announced their final run as a band back in October, where they shared the first initial dates of the tour (and soon after, the second leg of dates.)

Following KISS’ announcement of their final world tour, the band’s guitarist Tommy Thayer has shared that this run will really be the band’s last.

Thayer recently sat with Russian website Tass.com (via loudersound) where he further explained the band’s decision to do one final run:

“Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and myself, we decided that while the band is still very good and we are doing the best shows in the history of the band, that we wanted to go out when we’re in top form and do a final tour.

He then continued on to say that the final world tour is not a gimmick, as some thought once the news broke:

“It is not a gimmick, it is legitimate. This will be the final tour of Kiss. The shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg will be the last Kiss is going to play there.”

These remarks seemingly echoed what the band said in their initial announcement of the tour:

“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,” shared KISS. “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.”

The band’s End Of The Road tour will begin on Jan. 31 in Vancouver, BC, Canada and it appears to be wrapping up in Oakland, California on Sept. 16 (when the second leg of the North American run will finish.)
