Kiss have announced plans to hang up their, um, facepaint and tongues, after one final world tour. And this won’t be like their last farewell tour, they really mean it this time. Probably. The band’s Paul Stanley announced plans for the farewell jaunt when they appeared on ‘America’s Got Talent’ this week.

They subsequently put out a statement, saying: “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”.

Kiss Army members last got a chance to see the band perform for the final time in 2001, following a run of shows featuring the original line-up. Stanley and bassist Gene Simmons subsequently decided to keep going, however. Nearly two decades on, it is possible that this really will be their final outing.

No dates have been announced yet. There are no real details at all, to be honest. All we know is that it’s happening. I’m sure they’ll get around to confirming all the important stuff soon. In the meantime, here they are performing ‘Detroit Rock City’ on ‘AGT’:
