We're not asking for the return of the massive Asylum tour version or anything, but if we're saying goodbye, let's do it old-school style with real, heat-generating lights.

The news was delivered in trademark larger-than-life KISS style with a blistering performance of "Detroit Rock City", proving why the band is known as one of the most iconic live performances that simply can't be missed.

During an appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent last night Kiss announced that they will be embarking on a farewell tour beginning in 2019. "This show will have the most explosions, the most hits and be the loudest yet!" While the group stopped short of announcing dates, the title suggests the tour will be on the scale of Elton John's three-year farewell campaign, which launched earlier this month. Here are five things we'd love to see happen when the hottest band in the world takes the stage for the last time. "Kiss Army, we're saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet, and we'll go out the same way we came in... unapologetic and unstoppable".

The band which is now comprised of Paul Stanley, Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer was formed in New York City in 1973.

"I'm the Doctor", she says in the new trailer, who shows her waving a new version of her character's iconic sonic screwdriver. The footage promises plenty of action, explosions and exploration, all hallmarks of the franchise.


Simmons waxed nostalgic about the band during an interview with USA TODAY this week.

But in an interview with Glasgow Live past year, Kiss co-founder Gene Simmons said, "We're not going to be able to do this into our 70s - and I'm 67 now".

"We always kind of just bumbled along and marched to the beat of our own drum".
