The legendary band KISS has been on a long "End of the Road" tour, and it's not over yet. In fact, the band will return to the area for the second time on its tour on Sept. 20, 2020 at Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington.
It's part of the announced last leg of shows, and the final concert will be held July 21, 2021, at a New York location to be named.
Tickets go on sale for the Ridgefield show at 10 a.m. Nov. 22 at www.LiveNation.com.
KISS already stopped in Portland in February, but its final tour is proving to be popular as fans clamor to see Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Beaverton native Tommy Thayer.
The band has sold more than 100 million albums, and lured thousands to the KISS Army.
"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 the years," the band said.
