KISS, America’s #1 gold-record-award-winning group of all time in every category, has a stunning catalog of rock n’ roll classics. The release of Kissworld-The Best Of KISS comes in time to mark the anniversary of the band’s first show ever performing on January 30th, 1973 to no more than 10 people in attendance at Popcorns, a small club in New York, as well as celebrating the global superstar band as they launch their 2019 End Of The Road final tour at an 18,000-seat major arena on January 31st in Vancouver. Kissworld brings together 20 of KISS’s best-loved tracks together on one album. Iconic fan favorites such as I Was Made For Lovin’ You, Rock And Roll All Nite and God Gave Rock ‘N’ Roll To You II alongside top 10 U.S. chart hits Beth and Detroit Rock City on one huge collection.

KISS is one of the most iconic and influential rock acts of all time. The band have released 44 albums and sold over 100 million records worldwide. Consummate live performers, the band’s illustrious career is marked by record breaking global tours.

Now, after an epic and storied 45-year career that launched an era of rock n’ roll legends, KISS announced that they will embark on their final tour ever in 2019, appropriately named End Of The Road.

    Remember when DOUBLE PLATINUM, which was excellent by the way was the only Greatest hits compilation? That seems like a lifetime ago.

    Cool! KISS songs that I already own on multiple discs! Pass.

    Having Tommy and Eric on a “best of Kiss” cover is laughable – and no Ace songs – ACK!
    Leave it to Paul and Gene to sign off on another Best of Compilation – but got to hand it to them – they know they have a number of sheep who need everything Kiss and will buy this.
    Would love to be a fly on the wall when discussions for this release took place.

    Gene: How long since our last hits record?
    Paul: We haven’t had a hit record in over a decade or more
    Gene: No no no – a greatest hits record
    Paul: Oh, like three years
    Gene: Lets get to work putting out a new one
    Paul: Sounds good

    I would bet if Paul and Gene released a “Worst of Kiss” it would sell.

    Anyway, it was mentioned on here this could be the tour’s setlist – I would not be surprised in the least. For the fans going, I hope not.

    kiss has nothing to do with it,the record company does.yes kiss gets paid,but its a record company decision to put this nonsense out,not kiss……..

      Jeff – would think band (Paul/Gene) has some say. Would think any band owes record company a certain number of releases per their contract. A best of is one way to do that.
      Do not know the deal(s) Kiss has with the record companies plus not sure which is stronger for Paul/Gene – the need for control vs the need for $$$ 🙂
