Rock legends Kiss recently announced the final shows of their final tour, The End of the Road Tour. 

Originally set to end in 2021, the tour will now officially finish at Madison Square Garden in New York with two shows, Dec. 1-2. 

“Kiss was born in New York City,” the band said in a press release. “On 23rd Street. Half a century ago. It will be a privilege and honor to finish touring at Madison Square Garden, 10 blocks and 50 years from where we first started.”

If you want a final chance to see the band whose live show is rivaled by none, then makes plans to catch them at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Nov. 25 and Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois, on Nov. 27.

Ex-Cinderella singer touring

Former frontman for Cinderella, Tom Keifer, nearly sold out Piere’s last summer during the Sonic Slam Tour with LA Guns and Faster Pussycat. The tour was well-received across the country. 

Hoping to replicate that success, Keifer recently announced a run beginning in June with Winger and former Mötley Crüe and Dead Daisies vocalist John Corabi in tow. 

Unfortunately, the Live & Loud 2023 tour is not scheduled to hit Fort Wayne, but it will stop at Blue Note Harrison outside Cincinnati on June 17 and Arcada Theatre outside Chicago on July 14.

If you are a fan of ’80s era music, the trip will be worth it.

Night Ranger in Shipshewana

While we are on the subject of ’80s music, Night Ranger have been signed to play at Blue Gate Performing Arts Center in Shipshewana on June 24. 

While they are still touring in support of their latest album, ATBPO, Night Ranger’s set always focuses on the hits we know like “Sister Christian,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” and “(You Can Still) Rock in America.”

This is another show well worth the trouble of traveling to if you are a fan. Professionals in every aspect, every show they play is energetic and full of fun and feels like they are playing the songs for the first time. 

Night Ranger never disappoint.
