KISS has not yet said there they will wrap up their ‘End of the Road’ tour next year, but Gene Simmons would love it to be in Liverpool.
Simmons told internet radio show Planet Rock, "I have dream scenarios in my mind. I don't have the right to say these words -- I'm not qualified to say those words -- it's even semi-sacrilegious, but boy would I love the last time to play (with) very small amps be at The Cavern Club... A tip of my soulful hat to these four guys who came out of Liverpool. The Beatles not only changed my life but gave me a reason...”
He added, "Of course, we can't shine their shoes. We can't. We can't! We're not qualified to walk in their shadows. But ‘homage’ is a good word. My knees would buckle at the thought of playing that very last show, maybe to a group of friends, at The Cavern Club.”
The original Cavern Club is the iconic venue where The Beatles performed nearly 300 times in the early '60s.It was demolished in 1973, but a new Cavern Club opened close by in the early '80s.
Before the pandemic, KISS had announced that they would finish the tour in their hometown of New York City, which could very well still happen.
The legendary band will wrap up the Australian leg of their End of the Road tour Saturday in Gold Coast. The next U.S. part of the tour will begin on September 21st in West Palm Beach, California.
