Nearly three years after Kiss announced the final leg of what was supposed to be their final trek, the band has plotted the final final string of dates on their End of the Road Tour.

Trumpeted as “the absolute final shows of their final tour,” the farewell leg kicks off Oct. 29 in Austin, Texas and hits arenas across the U.S. and Canada before the makeup comes off — for good? — with a two-night stand at Kiss’ hometown Madison Square Garden in New York.

“Kiss was born in New York City. On 23rd Street. Half a century ago. It will be a privilege and honor to finish touring at Madison Square Garden, 10 blocks and 50 years from where we first started,” the band said of the final two gigs, Dec. 1 and 2, at the World’s Most Famous Arena.

Kiss’ never-ending End of the Road Tour has long-planned on concluding in the Big Apple, with a “final concert” originally scheduled for July 17, 2021 in New York City. “We’ve been on the End of the Road tour, and people have said, ‘When is the last show?’” Paul Stanley told the audience aboard the Kiss Kruise in 2019. “So, we’re here to tell you that the end of the road comes to an end on July 17, 2021 in New York City.” However, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the band to postpone much of their “farewell” tour as well as that final show.

“We can’t be running around for that much longer in 40 pounds of gear,” Stanley previously told Rolling Stone of the farewell tour. “There’s nothing maudlin about it. It’s a celebration with our fans around the world. We wanted to raise the bar again as to what a band can do live. That’s really what we’ve always done: We’ve always wanted to be the band we never saw. There are a lot of shows out there that have Kiss DNA in them because they really weren’t shows of any magnitude before us.”
