Frontman Stanley echoed the sentiment, emphasizing, “What we’ve accomplished has been amazing, but it’s not enough. The band deserves to live on because the band is bigger than we are. It’s exciting for us to go to the next step and see KISS immortalized.” Get ready for KISS to reach new heights, both digitally and artistically!
While numerous fans applauded KISS for embracing technological innovation, there were dissenting voices. Comments such as, “You can rock forever, but the core fanbase will be dead in 10-15 years. Get ahold of yourselves,” encapsulated the skepticism and concerns expressed by some fans regarding the band’s future.
“They’re going to improve,” Simmons expressed about the avatars. “It’s absolutely astonishing. There’s so much in the works, even beyond my understanding. They’re investing around $200 million to elevate it to the next level.”
