KISS Takes Over Times Square For Halloween

Yesterday, iconic rock band KISS celebrated Halloween with a total rock n roll takeover of Times Square in New York City. The epic takeover was in celebration of their recent End Of The Road World Tour announcement – which will be the band’s final tour ever.

The video below showcases the massive takeover of four enormous clusters and 13 huge billboards right in the heart of the Big Apple, as well as an exclusive interview with the band.

“I was a New York City cab driver. I remember driving through Times Square but never could I have imagined that instead of driving the cab, I’d be up on the billboard,” said KISS vocalist / guitarist Paul Stanley.

After an epic and storied 45 year career that launched an era of rock n roll legends, KISS has announced that they will launch their final tour ever in 2019, appropriately named, End Of The Road. Tickets to the general public will go on sale starting Friday, November 2nd at 10 AM, local time at LiveNation.com.

Known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide have said this tour is devoted to the millions of KISS Army fans.

"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," said KISS.
