It was announced today that Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Lee Roth will open for KISS on the next leg of their End of the Road World Tour, which includes a stop at the PPL Center in Allentown on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m.

The 65-year-old rock vocalist is best known as the lead singer of Van Halen on hits like “Jump,” “Hot for Teacher,” and “Runnin’ with the Devil,” but he also released several gold and platinum albums as a solo artist. He is currently gearing up for a nine-show residency at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.

Known for their trademark larger-than-life, blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock ‘n’ roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, have said this tour is devoted to the millions of KISS Army fans.

“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas, and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. 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,” KISS said.

Formed in New York City in December of 1972, KISS is regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of all time. Easily identified by its members’ trademark face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid and late-1970s on the basis of their elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, and pyrotechnics.

With record-breaking tours around the globe, KISS is one of the bestselling bands of all time, having sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 25 million RIAA-certified albums. The KISS legacy continues to grow, generation after generation, transcending age, race, and creed. The unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the KISS Army to the “hottest band in the world” is a striking testament to the band’s unbreakable bond with its fans.
