KISS disbands at their last gig, but their virtual personas tour.

KISS concluded their "End of the Road" tour with a final concert at Madison Square Garden, marking the end of their 50-year touring career. 

Founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, performed classic tracks like "I Love It Loud" and "Beth." 

After leaving the stage, the band's digital avatars took over, performing "God Gave Rock And Roll To You." 

A video on the official YouTube channel showcased the making of the avatars, created in partnership with Pophouse Entertainment Group using motion-capture suits. 

KISS is the first US band to adopt digital avatars, created by Industrial Light & Magic, George Lucas-founded visual effects company. 

Frontman Paul Stanley emphasized the band's legacy, stating, "The band deserves to live on because the band is bigger than we are." 

Pophouse Entertainment Group mentioned that KISS will continue to perform digitally for "decades to come," ensuring their immortalization. 

KISS joins ABBA in using digital avatars for performances, with Pophouse having worked with both bands, along with Avicii and Swedish House Mafia.
