David Lee Roth Breaks 13-Year Touring Hiatus To Join KISS’ Farewell Tour

By Eliot Hill

December 17, 2019

David Lee Roth has a huge 2020 to look forward to. Not only did the Van Halen frontman announce a Las Vegas residency beginning next month, but he's now going on tour with KISS.

Announced on Tuesday (December 17), the iconic singer will be joining the equally legendary band on its End of the Road Tour for a ton of North American shows between February and October 2020. Fans can catch Roth on tour with KISS starting February 1 in Manchester, New Hampshire, and ending on October 2, in Fort Worth, Texas.

This is huge news considering it's been 13 years since Roth has ventured on a solo tour. So while it may put a damper on a Van Halen reunion, fans can at least see him live again if they can't make it to Vegas. Roth will also headline North Carolina's upcoming 2020 Epicenter festival along with Metallica and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Back in October, Roth admitted that Van Halen is “finished” after the band's summer stadium tour was canceled on multiple occasions. 

For those also looking to see him in Vegas, 'David Lee Roth: Rocks Vegas' debuts January 8 at House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

KISS recently announced that its final concert of the farewell tour (which has almost been going on for a full year) will take place in New York City. 

Tickets to the tour are available now!
