Kiss, one of the most popular rock bands in the world, has announced the last leg of their farewell tour, the End of the Road World Tour, after almost three years of its initial announcement. The tour, which is being touted as “the absolute final shows of their final tour,” will kick off its final leg on October 29, 2023, in Austin, Texas, and will cover various locations in the United States and Canada before culminating with the final two performances at Madison Square Garden, the band’s birthplace in New York City.

Originally, Kiss planned to conclude their tour in July 2021 with a final concert in New York City. However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to postpone much of their “farewell” tour as well as that final show. The band’s loyal fans were eagerly waiting for the last concert, and it’s bittersweet news that Kiss has finally announced the final tour dates.

Kiss has always been known for their larger-than-life performances, and with this final tour, the band aims to raise the bar once again for live performances, which have always been a significant part of their DNA. According to Paul Stanley, the band has always wanted to give their fans a memorable and thrilling experience, and they have managed to do so throughout their career.

With the pandemic affecting the music industry severely, Kiss’s final tour is likely to draw huge crowds. Fans of the band are expected to travel from all over the world to catch the last glimpse of their favorite band’s live performance. This final tour leg will also be an opportunity for the band to showcase their timeless music to a new generation of fans.

With Kiss’s final tour, the music industry is set to witness the end of an era, and it will undoubtedly be a momentous occasion for all music lovers.

Ed Sheeran Announces New Album, ‘-‘, a Personal and Honest Representation of His Life

Ed Sheeran announced his brand new album social media earlier today. The forthcoming LP, called “-” or “Subtract”, will be released on May 5th by Atlantic Records. This album will mark the end of his mathematical album era, which began with “+”, followed by “x”, “÷”, and “=”. Sheeran shared that he had been working on “Subtract” for a decade, trying to create the perfect acoustic album, and had written and recorded hundreds of songs with a clear vision in mind.

However, a series of events in 2022 changed his life, mental health, and perspective on music and art. He described how writing songs is his therapy, and that he wrote without any thought of what the songs would be, simply allowing his deepest and darkest thoughts to tumble out. Within a week, he had replaced a decade’s worth of work with these new songs.

During this time, his pregnant wife was diagnosed with a tumor, his best friend passed away suddenly, and he found himself defending his career as a songwriter in court. Sheeran felt like he was spiraling through fear, depression, and anxiety and wanted to create something that accurately represented where he was in his adult life.

For this album, he teamed up with The National’s Aaron Dessner and they wrote over 30 songs during a month-long studio session. The resulting 14-track album is set to feature folk-leaning qualities as well as full-band and orchestral arrangements, and is a deeply personal and honest representation of where Sheeran is in his life right now.

Check out the full tracklist for Subtract below.
