When KISS's "End Of The Road" farewell tour stopped at Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center on Thursday (August 29),the band made special shirts to mark the occasion. The only problem was that KISS's t-shirt manufacturer made the mistake of spelling Cincinnati with an extra "t" ("Cincinnatti"). People on social media were quick to share photos of the special $50 commemorative t-shirts — which were sold to fans inside the concert venue — with the city's name emblazoned on the back over a world map.
KISS's current lineup consists of original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, alongside later band additions, guitarist Tommy Thayer (since 2002) and drummer Eric Singer (on and off since 1991).
Formed in 1973 by Stanley, Simmons, drummer Peter Criss and lead guitarist Ace Frehley, KISS staged its first "farewell" tour in 2000, the last to feature the group's original lineup.
Stanley recently told The Sydney Morning Herald about the "End Of The Road" tour, which kicked off in January and is expected to last at least through the end of 2020: "This is our victory lap. It's us celebrating everything we created with our audience and with our fans. It's that time for people who've been with us over the years to come and celebrate all that we've had together. There's people who've never seen us before and they're leaving the show and thinking, 'Why didn't I come to this earlier?' It's terrific."
