KISS goodbye: ‘Freedom to Rock’ tour makes final stop in WV Tonight

After nearly 40 shows, the rock band KISS’s “Freedom to Rock” tour comes to a close Saturday night at Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington.

Paul Stanley (The Starchild) said it’s been a good tour.

“The response has been phenomenal,” he said. “Fans are saying it’s the best show they’ve seen, the best the band has been — and interestingly, critics seem to agree, which is suspicious, but I’ll take it.”

The “Freedom to Rock” tour, Stanley said, has been about delivering on the legend and legacy of KISS, while spotlighting the U.S. military.

“The people who make it all possible,” he said.

Stanley promised it would be a show like no other, though acknowledged people may have seen shows similar to it.

“It’s well known that KISS DNA is in the shows of most bands,” the singer said.
