The remaining North American tour dates on Kiss's 'End of the Road' tour have officially been pushed to next summer.
David Lee Roth served as main support for Kiss this year before the tour was suspended and will reportedly rejoin the band on the rescheduled dates.
The tour will resume in Massachusetts on August 18 and make 21 more stops before wrapping up on October 6 in Louisiana.
Kiss recently confirmed that they would tour across Europe next summer. The trek will include festival dates, like a headlining slot at the U.K.'s Download festival on June 4, 2021.
But all the newly-announced Kiss dates come with a caveat: the band has vowed not to hit the road until the pandemic is over and people's health is safe again in large gatherings.
"We are waiting. We are ready. When we are told everyone is safe and this pandemic is over, we will shake the Earth and rock your world as always and as never before," said Paul Stanley.
"We can't wait for this pandemic to be over, and for all of you to be safe," added Gene Simmons. "We are planning to rock your world, once it is safe out there, for all of you and for us."
Stanley and Simmons have been as active as ever on social media during the pandemic months urging compliance with COVID-19 safety recommendations and asking people to listen to take cues from medical professionals, not conspiracy theorists.
During the annual Kiss Kruise last fall, Kiss announced that its final show ever would take place July 21, 2021 in New York City. The rescheduled North American dates confirm that Kiss will indeed move the date of its final concert, but no specifics have been announced.
