Has Kiss Just Unveiled Their New ‘End of the Road’ Tour Costumes?
In a message sent to SiriusXM subscribers promoting their upcoming appearance on the satellite network's Town Hall interview series, Kiss is pictured in all-new outfits.
As you can see from the photo above, the "hottest band in the land" seem to have traded in their most recent stage wear - which revisited their 1982 Creatures of the Night tour look - in favor of sleeker, more ornately decorated combinations of leather, studs and rhinestones. The chest plate of guitarist Tommy Thayer's latest take on the Spaceman outfit has a distinctly Transformers feel to it.
The new photo once again seemingly confirms that the current lineup of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Thayer - which has been in place since 2004 - will be the one featured on the tour, despite persistent rumors about the possible return of founding lead guitarist Ace Frehley.
“This will be a celebration of Kiss and not any individual lineup or any individual members," said Stanley when asked about the possible return or guest appearances by former members such as Frehley, Vinnie Vincent or Bruce Kulick. "I wouldn’t rule anything out, but it’s not the crux of what we’re doing.”
Kiss has yet to announce dates or venues for the End of the Road tour. The group is scheduled to make a series of media appearances on Monday, Oct. 30, including a Q&A session with iHeartRadio and a performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
