Kiss lead singer Gene Simmons has teased that, as part of their huge 150-stop farewell tour, the band will play ‘in the coldest place in the world.’
The rockers are no stranger to the heat of pyrotechnics, but one of the stops on their next tour should bring the temperature way down.
The band are planning to perform at 150 stops in what they’re billing as a ‘farewell tour’ – it was initially intended to take place last summer but was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
They now intend to start it up again in June and July for a European leg, the first of which is currently planned for June 2 in Antwerp, Belgium.
Appearing on LA radio station 95.5 KLOS to talk about the tour, Gene revealed he has no worry about coronavirus hurting the tour again.
He said ‘The vaccines are gonna be out there for everybody, oh, by January, February, March at the latest, but we’re gonna be out there a few months after that.
‘And we’ve literally got 150 cities booked.’
It appears that the band is planning to play in some strange and unique locations too, as Gene went on to say: ‘You can’t imagine what we’ve got planned — like, beyond … I said, “No. We can really do that?” They said, “Yup. Yup.”
‘The political people said we can play there. And so there’s gonna be stuff that’s just gonna make you go, “That’s the coolest.”‘
That last comment is literal too – the rocker went on to suggest that the band would have to wear thermals for one of their performances.
‘And if you can imagine us playing there with even larger pyro than you’ve ever seen, because there’s nothing around there. But that’s all I’ll say about it.’
While it’s not named, Antarctica is widely considered the coldest place on Earth – it would also line up with the suggestion that ‘there’s nothing around there’.
While the band seems confident, there are concerns about the availability of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines for the entire world.
How and if this will affect the band’s remaining 150 shows remains to be seen.
