David Lee Roth confirmed to open for Kiss 'End of the Road' tour

News 10/01/2020

Kiss will be resuming their 'End of the Road' tour in the new year, accompanied by David Lee Roth as their opening act. 

The first leg will run from 1st February to 15th March, with the second leg running 28th August until 2nd October. Kiss' last ever show, as they previously announced, will be at an as-yet unannounced venue in New York on 17th July, 2021 - so they're still sticking around for a while yet.

Roth was recently listed as the opening act for numerous dates of the tour on the Live Nation app, but no official announcement had been made. A press release has now confirmed the news. 

Roth is relaunching his solo career after over four years since his last show with Van Halen, whom he rejoined back in 2007. Prior to the Kiss tour, he'll begin a residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, which he'll continue after finishing up the US leg of the Kiss tour. 

After a stadium tour planned for the middle of 2019 that never materialised, Roth said Van Halen was "finished", but refused to provide specific details. 

"That's been cancelled a number of times. And I think Van Halen's finished, and this [upcoming solo Las Vegas residency] is the next phase. I've inherited the band de facto — whatever that means. I think it means if you inherit it, carry this proudly. Van Halen isn't gonna be coming back in the fashion that you know. And that being said, Eddie's [Van Halen] got his own story to tell. Not mine to tell it," he said.
