Kiss Cancels Concert Dates Due To Band Member’s Illness
Late last night hard rock band Kiss announced the cancellation of the entire upcoming Australian leg of their “End of the Road” tour. The cancellation is due to Paul Stanley suffering complications from the flu.
Stanley expressed disappointment over the announcement saying
“Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country,” “Our connection to you is unparalleled and decades deep.”
“We waited as long as we could and held out hope to the last minute that my situation would clear up and we would be able to march forward. Doctor’s orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender. With heavy hearts, KISS.”
Doctors have advised Stanley to further rest due to a “bad case of influenza.”
Two months ago, KISS bassist and co-lead vocalist Gene Simmons had an urgent medical procedure that postponed the group’s “End of the Road” show in Salt Lake City.
However, the band’s Japanese dates for later this year appear to still be scheduled. The band will pick things up again in the new year with more touring. See the band’s announcement below!
