: KISS calls it quits

2-14-00 3:35 PM PST antiGUY

Another chapter in rock n roll history is sadly about to end.  The Bat Lizard, Star Child, Space Ace and Cat Man are hanging up their platform boots and taking off the makeup, putting an end to almost 30 years of Kisstory. 

The last chapter of the KISS story is sure to live up to the excitement of their past. The band plans to say farewell to the fans the best way they know how, with a tour.  To insure the shows will be the biggest of the year, the guys in KISS asked another legend, Ted Nugent, to join the tour. Skid Row, with their new vocalist, will also be along for what is sure to be the wildest ride of the year. 

While we are sad to see KISS come to an end, we are overjoyed that they are going out in a Blaze of Glory! 

Online fans will get first crack at tickets courtesy of VH1.com.  Fans will be able to purchase advanced tickets for the tour at the VH1.com web site this week starting on Feb 16.  Tickets will be available to the general public starting on Feb 19th.
