KISS

Allstate Arena

Rosemont, IL

The “End Of The Road” Tour recently flirted with the end of times. Paul Stanley, lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Kiss, was forced to cancel three of the band’s final eight performances. A serious bout of influenza landed him in the hospital and had him wondering if “it was his time.”

The NYC quartet, famous for their immediately recognizable kabuki face paint and explosive (literally) live shows, are nearing the end of what is being dubbed their last tour ever. Of course, a band that is equally renowned for crying wolf certainly has its doubters. But there are enough believers that has resulted in some serious box office along the way.

So, if this is indeed the final bow, the band landed at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena and was greeted by a packed, ravenous house of Kiss Army devotees. And after 50 years of doing it, they’ve learned to give their fans exactly what they want. Specifically, over the top rock songs with sing along choruses that sound otherworldly when being blasted out of a beat up Camaro in a Burger King parking lot with the windows rolled down.

And let us not forget spectacle. Lasers, flash pots, pyro, oversized video screens, fire ball spitting guitars and a fire breathing, blood vomiting bass player in Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley zip lining across the length of the arena. If this was indeed the final curtain for this costumed rock and roll circus, KISS went out with an apocalyptic-sized bang!
