Kiss will conclude the UK leg of their farewell tour with a final show in Glasgow on Saturday.

The American rock band formed in 1973 and currently consists of members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.

After initially announcing their retirement in 2000, the band set the dates for their final performances in the UK, and they have played in Plymouth, Birmingham, Newcastle, London and Manchester in 2023.

The rock stars will take to a UK stage for the last time at Glasgow’s OVO Hydro on Saturday, July 8.

Shows were originally planned to take place in 2021, however the band was forced to postpone the performances due to Covid.

Kiss returned to the UK music scene last year with a headline set at Download Festival – a five-day rock music event held at Donington Park in Leicestershire.

The band are known for their larger-than-life outfits and dramatic black and white makeup, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014.

As part of the End Of The Road tour, the band will also perform across Europe with shows in the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Brussels, France, Italy, Sweden, Germany, and Norway.

Speaking ahead of the UK dates, Kiss 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.

“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.”
