KISS made two big revelations this Saturday during their concert at Madison Square Garden in New York. First of all, KISS has announced that this concert was the last of their career. “This is our final show” were his words. However, KISS has added that the group will not stop offering concerts, as it becomes virtual. Its members – Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer – will be replaced by their digital avatars.
The avatars already exist and have been created by the same company that brought ABBA’s holograms to reality, that is, George Lucas’ company Industrial Light & Magic, in collaboration with the Pophouse Entertainment Group.
In a promotional video, KISS announces that “a new era begins.” And Paul Stanley offers a few words about this surprising reinvention from the band behind ‘I Was Made for Lovin’ You’. «What we have achieved has been amazing, but it is not enough. The band deserves to continue existing because it is bigger than us. “We are excited to take the next step and see KISS immortalized.”
Gene Simmons adds: “We can be eternally young and iconic by taking ourselves to places we have never dreamed of before. Technology will make Paul jump higher than he has ever done before… The future is so exciting. “If you think you’re going to get rid of us, I’m afraid that’s not going to happen.”
