Ahead of KISS’ North American tour, Gene Simmons shared whether the band would also hold its Las Vegas residency again.
KISS was supposed to hold its residency at Zappos Theater from December 2021 to February 2022. However, it got canceled a month before the scheduled beginning.
In a new interview with Las Vegas Review-Journal, the vocalist-bassist shared whether KISS would perform in Las Vegas again after previously calling off their show.
“I mean, every guy whoever washed my dog or did my dry cleaning, is hitting me up for tickets for his entire family, three generations back,” he said. “Vegas? I don’t know, it would be nice to do a Vegas residency. But I don’t know any of these things.”
Simmons noted that the band has always been swamped by people who badly want to see them wherever they are.
Although KISS’ return to Las Vegas is currently blurry, Simmons’ bandmate, Paul Stanley, did not rule out the band’s potential one-off shows of a residency after their final performance on the End of the Road tour.
He told Yahoo! Entertainment that, while he had no idea whether it would happen after the band’s tour, the members became more open about taking a bow once the members have a clear mindset that their touring days are over.
Why KISS Postponed Its Las Vegas Residency
The members’ comments came over a year after KISS canceled its residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood.
According to reports, the decision was made due to “soft ticket sales.” Other potential reasons were not mentioned after the cancelation.
KISS has gone through a lot of downs before resuming its End of the Road tour. The scheduled concert tour was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the band initially added the residency as part of its shows.

It also faced cancelations after cancelations because of different issues, including the issues surrounding the death of Paul Stanley’s guitar tech.
In August and September 2021, Stanley and Simmons tested positive for COVID-19. Reports revealed at that time that 13 out of the band’s 70 personnel contracted the dreaded virus amid its shows.
However, the band still pushed through despite the positive tests for crew members, which was different when Stanley and Simmons tested positive.
KISS is set to resume End of the Road tour’s next leg in Manaus, Brazil, on April 12. Its last shows will happen in their hometown, New York, on Dec. 1 and 2.
