This week, KISS will resume its End of the Road farewell tour with the last leg of North American dates — but a few more have been added to the rock icons‘ schedule, specifically 12 shows at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, starting on Dec. 29-Jan. 1 and resuming with some additional engagements from Jan 9 – Feb. 5, 2022.

The Vegas residency dates:

Dec. 2021: 29 & 31
Jan. 2022: 1, 19, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29
Feb. 2022: 2, 4, 5

Discussing the residency with Rolling Stone in a Q&A accompanying the news, Gene Simmons offered this up when asked how the band will navigate tour dates during the ongoing pandemic:

“I would highly recommend for everybody to get two Pfizer or Moderna shots, please — for the rest of us. Even if you believe the Earth is flat, it’s not. The former president… I knew the man before he ran for office. It was a crime for him to rip the mask off and take that stance and create that negative culture of distrust when he himself was vaccinated. The least he could do is say, “Hey, guys, I’ve been vaccinated because I don’t want to die. You may want to think about doing the same thing.” Nope, never talked about it. I think that’s highly unethical. So what do we do? The entire road crew must be vaccinated twice. Nobody gets backstage or onstage without wearing masks, and everybody stays at a safe distance and you’ve got to wash your hands and do everything else the CDC says. Don’t listen to politicians. They’re not qualified. Listen to scientists.”
