Due to high demand, the London rockers added a second date when they make a stop here on their Music of the Spheres World Tour.

The legendary English rocker and former The Police frontman, also known as Gordon Sumner, will be playing all his greatest hits on the My Songs Tour.

Join the shock rockers on the final leg of their farewell End of the Road World Tour. Although there have been many rumours surrounding the significance of the band’s name, the most popular theory that it stands for “Knights in Satan’s Service” has been repeatedly refuted by frontman Gene Simmons.
