Kiss has announced that they will conclude their End of the Road farewell tour with two December 2023 shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden.

Paul Stanley revealed that the band will perform at their hometown's most famous venue on Dec. 1 and 2 during an appearance on the Howard Stern Show. That will be just shy of 51 years after they played their first show on Jan. 30, 1973 at the Popcorn Club in nearby Queens. You can see the full list of confirmed dates below. A leg of dates leading up to the Madison Square Garden shows are expected to be announced shortly.

Kiss launched the End of the Road Tour in January 2019, putting the trek on pause in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and resuming in summer 2021. The face-painted rockers have logged hundreds of shows on the tour, and in June 2022, Gene Simmons revealed that they wanted to add another 100 dates to the itinerary.

"We don't know [when the tour will end]. We've never retired before. This is our first time," Simmons told Chaoszine. "It's like painting a painting or writing a book. When somebody says, 'When is it gonna be finished?' You're in the middle of it; you don't know." He added, "The crew is happy. Everybody's happy. So we've decided to add another 100 cities before we stop. I don't know how long that's gonna take."

Paul Stanley recently echoed his bandmate's sentiments. "We're far from done. I'd like to say that this is the end of the road, but they keep paving more road," he told UCR last December. "The only people that seems to bother are the people who hate us. Quite honestly, they've never mattered and they still don't. The people who want to see us are thrilled. The people who wish we'd go away are going to have to wait. And in one form or another, we're never gonna go."
