On the CNBC, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley shared the exciting news that the band will be going on a new big tour. The tour is set to start at the end of January 2019.
He joked on “It has not been announced yet. So don’t tell anybody! Breaking news”
“Kiss is very interesting at this point because it has almost become a tribe. Because so many bands are based on a certain demographic whereas Kiss has young children up to grandparents and everybody shares the experience. It’s incredibly gratifying to look out and see real families, neighbors, all kinds of people there. It’s a good job.”
Kiss currently has few concert dates on their 2018 schedule. The tour this year is set to be performed in July in Spain and Portugal. Seems like other Kiss fans will have to wait a bit more.
The Kiss already had performed a “Farewell Tour” back in 2000 and 2001.
The father of four also added that he does everything he does for his family. He added that he drops his kids at school and goes to the studio and paint. Being a good father, even when on tour, he tries to do the tour around his children’s school schedule.
“I guess I’m a punk impressionist. I’m a big believer that a lot of people have abilities that they don’t really tap into because people around them are telling them that it’s not good or impossible.”
Love to Paint
In the interview, he showed off his art pieces also explaining how and why he was introduced in painting.
“Painting, I originally started doing as a way to depressurize and in itself, it’s turned into a multiple seven-figure. ummm.. diversion.. and a 5 day a week job!”
When asked, he shared that he is a self-taught painter and he had not joined any painting classes. His paintings got better with practice and time.
