Over the weekend, KISS announced a fresh slate of 75 new farewell tour dates, including what the band is calling their final show ever. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the dates kick off February 1 in Manchester, New Hampshire, and criss-cross the U.S. through March 15 in Biloxi, Mississippi. KISS then heads to Central and South America, as well as Europe, before launching another U.S. leg in late August. The final KISS show, appropriately, is slated to happen in New York City on July 17, 2021.

KISS also announced it's following in the footsteps of fellow classic rockers Queen, Elton John and Mötley Crüe and planning a biopic. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, manager Doc McGhee revealed that the film is "basically the formation of KISS and how that came about." McGhee cautioned that there's no set timetable yet, only that the band is "in the middle of it now, and I think it will come out before the end of next year--or it won't come out." The manager stressed KISS is committed to doing the biopic right, however: "It’s important to make sure you have the right partners...You get something that’s true to what Kiss is.”
