There’s one last opportunity to catch KISS in concert

The legendary rock band will perform at Coca-Cola Arena as part of their End of the Road World Tour later this year.

It was back in January 1973 that a newly formed band by the name of KISS performed at Popcorn Club in Queens, New York, playing for only a handful of people. Today, over 50 years later, the rock legends are still selling out stadiums and inspiring generations of musicians with their signature blend of hard rock and onstage theatrics. But with the members of KISS hanging up their proverbial (platform) boots after the end of their last tour later this year, news of their pitstop in Dubai is especially bittersweet.

That’s right — All Things Live Middle East has just announced that KISS will perform at Coca-Cola Arena on Friday, 13 October as part of their End of the Road World Tour. This will be the band’s only concert in the Middle East. As tradition dictates for KISS concerts, the arena is expected to be jam-packed with the KISS Army dressed up in true rock ‘n’ roll style. “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,” said the band about their final tour.

Thomas Ovesen, CEO of All Things Live Middle East, said: “We are thrilled to announce the return of KISS to Dubai in October as they embark on their monumental End of the Road world tour. The production-heavy show presents a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the devoted KISS Army and rock enthusiasts alike, and Coca-Cola Arena stands as the ultimate destination to witness the band’s unforgettable farewell performance here in the UAE. With a concert often seen clocking more than two hours of KISS thrills, Middle East fans will get to ‘Rock And Roll All Nite’!”

The band’s line-up includes two original members, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Tommy Thayer. Some of the band’s biggest hits are “I Was Made for Lovin’ You“, “Rock and Roll All Nite“, “Detroit Rock City“, and “Heaven’s on Fire“. KISS last visited Dubai in December 2020, performing a New Year’s Eve concert at Atlantis, The Palm, breaking two Guinness World Records while playing and streaming to a global audience of two million, with over 500,000 live streams recorded.

Registration for the KISS Fan pre-sale is now open and will close on Sunday, 4 June at 8pm. The KISS Fan pre-sale will open Monday, 5 June at 10am ahead of the general sale on Tuesday, 6 June at 10am GST.
