A year ago today (Friday), January 31st, KISS began their End of the Road tour in Vancouver, Canada.

Tomorrow (Saturday) they start the third U.S. leg, this time in Manchester, New Hampshire at the SNHU Arena. With David Lee Roth opening, this leg runs through March 15th in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Promising to change the set list, Paul Stanley says the show features their biggest production ever.

“We really started from the ground up. The last 10 years the stages have all basically been elaborations of a certain structure. This time we threw everything away and came up with something that is really top cutting edge technology, but very much with the heart and soul — and balls shall I say — of what we’ve done before, but magnified so greatly. Again, it’s ultimate KISS like you’ve never seen.”

Following this U.S. leg, the tour heads to Central and South America, Europe and South Africa before coming back to the U.S. on August 28th in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, just outside Pittsburgh. The tour stops in Hartford at Xfinity Theater Saturday night Sept. 5
