Kiss Reveals Final Concert Will Be Broadcast Live: How to Watch

We’ve got good news for members (and non-members, too) of the Kiss Army because fans can watch the band’s last concert. Kiss is going to broadcast their December 2 concert from the famed Madison Square Garden on a pay-per-view basis.

So, here are the details. This concert will air on PPV.com, plus it will be available through cable and satellite providers in a pay-per-view format. You will be able to see it in this form in the United States and Canada. It will cost $39.99 in those nations and $14.99 beyond North America. Also, there is no subscription required. Indemand, which is the parent company of PPV.com, also will have the concert available across its cable, satellite, and telco providers. These include Xfinity, Spectrum, Contour, Optimum, Fios, DirecTV, and many more.

The End of the Road Tour has been hitting towns and cities all over the world since January 2019. Kiss put the brakes on the tour in 2020 because of COVID. But they picked it back up in the summer of 2021. On this farewell journey, Kiss has played more than 200 shows in Oceania, Asia, Europe, South America, and North America.

Paul Stanley Hints That Kiss Could Keep On Playing After ‘Final’ Concert

While it is more than likely that Kiss will hang up their costumes and makeup after Dec. 2, there’s always a chance the band could keep on going.

“Kiss is like an army or a sports team,” lead singer Paul Stanley told Ultimate Classic Rock last year. “When the MVP is no longer playing or retired, the team doesn’t call it quits. On a battlefield, an army, when they lose soldiers, doesn’t wave the white flag. Somebody else picks up the weapon and runs forward. So in one form or another, I believe there will always be a Kiss.”

“The Blue Man Group and Phantom of the Opera tour around the world with different personnel,” bassist Gene Simmons said. “There could and should be a Kiss show, kind of live onstage with effects and everything else, but also a semi-autobiographical thing about four knuckleheads off the streets of New York that ends with the last third as a full-blown celebration, a full-on performance.”

For all of its years of existence, Kiss has had a few songs on the Billboard charts. One of them is Beth, a beautiful ballad originally sung by former drummer Peter Criss. Other songs that reached the Hot 100 include Rock and Roll All Nite (live), Shout It Out Loud, I Was Made for Lovin’ You, and Forever. A couple of fan favorites that get airplay on classic rock stations include Hard Luck Woman and Love Gun.

Kiss formed itself into a band back in 1973 in New York City. One other original band member is guitarist Ace Frehley. But Frehley and Criss left the Kiss universe and were replaced by Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. Fans, though, are still showing up to hear Kiss play their hit songs.
