KISS Will Be Available To Fans Till Eternity With New Avatars

KISS performed one last time in front of a sea of fans on December 2nd at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in the final performance of the “End of the Road” farewell tour. After the performance, KISS announced that they will continue living up for the fans as digital avatars. It came as a surprise for fans, but it was worth every second because everyone loved it.

According to Ultimate Guitar, these digital avatars have been created by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), produced and financed by Swedish company Pophouse Entertainment. The virtual band peformed “God Gave Rock And Roll To You” for the amazed New York audience. Vocalist Paul Stanley told the audience a fact before KISS left the stage for good. He said, “The end of the road is the beginning of another road. We’re not going anywhere. You’ll see us in all different things all the time. We’ll see you in your dreams.”

Pophouse Entertainment CEO Per Sundin told Associated Press that the technology used for digital avatars would let KISS perform till “eternity.” He said, “Kiss could have a concert in three cities in the same night across three different continents. That’s what you could do with this.

Starchild added to this comment, and said, “People say, ‘Well, what are you gonna do when you stop?’ Well, the band will never stop. Because we don’t own the band. The fans own the band. The world owns the band. I mean, we’ve spent 50 years building it to this point. And by working with ILM and working with Pophouse, we’re all sharing this vision of taking Kiss to a completely different level beyond being just a music band. And we’ve always thought of ourselves as more than just a music band. What we’ve accomplished has been amazing, but it’s not enough. The band deserves to live on because the band is bigger than we are. It’s exciting for us to go the next step and see Kiss immortalized.”

Gene Simmons also had his share of thoughts for this new opportunity and said, “We can be forever young and forever iconic by taking us to places we’ve never dreamed of before. The technology is going to make Paul jump higher than he’s ever done before.”
