KISS Farewell Tour Is Not A Gimmick Says Guitarist was a top story on Tuesday: KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer says that the group's upcoming End Of The Road tour is not a gimmick and unlike their earlier farewell tour, the upcoming trek really will be the band's last tour.

The original reunited lineup of the iconic band embarked on a lengthy farewell tour in 2000 and 2001 but after it concluded Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons decided to continue the group with Tommy Thayer replacing Ace Frehley and former "Revenge" era drummer Eric Singer returning to replace Peter Criss.
