KISS frontman Paul Stanley reveals he’s prepared to endure a mandatory 14-day quarantine in Australia ahead of the band’s upcoming End of the Road farewell tour
KISS are set to bring their rescheduled End of the Road farewell tour to Australia from November to December this year.
However, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic international visitors must currently undergo a mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine.
And in an interview with The Daily Telegraph on Saturday, frontman Paul Stanley, 69, revealed that if the quarantine is still in place in November, he is prepared to isolate.

‘It’d be an honour to do whatever is called for,’ he told the publication.
‘Not just because it’s the rules and the law, you do it out of respect.’
The glam rock legends will perform in Australia from November to December 2021, playing shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Townsville.

Paul further told the publication that he ‘couldn’t be more thrilled’ to bring the concert to Australia.
The farewell tour was originally scheduled for late 2019, but the band had to postpone the tour when Paul fell ill, with doctors advising the guitarist and singer to ‘rest’.
KISS will start the Australian leg of the End of the Road tour on November 14 at the RAC Arena in Perth.

They will then perform at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (November 17), Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena (November 20 and 21), Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney (November 26), Brisbane Entertainment Centre (November 30) and the Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville (December 4).
Pre-sale tickets will be available from 10am on Tuesday, March 2 and the general public can buy tickets from midday on Friday, March 5.
KISS had previously cancelled their Australian tour at the eleventh hour in November 2019, just days before they were scheduled to perform in Adelaide.
KISS had offered full refunds at the time to anyone who purchased tickets to one of their six Australian concerts.
