Bad news for KISS fans today as the promoters One World Entertainment and TEG announced today the cancellation of the band’s Australian tour which was due to commence next Tuesday.
A press statement for the band said they were “absolutely gutted” and that they sincerely apologise to their fans.
So, who fell sick? Well, earlier this week doctors had advised Paul Stanley to rest due to a bad case of the flue, prompting the rescheduling of the tour’s first show in Perth to the end of the run and the cancellation of the New Zealand leg of the tour.
It was hoped the extra few days of rest would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery so the tour could proceed however this didn’t happen, and Stanley now has an additional infection in his throat.
Said Paul Stanley: “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. Doctors’ orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we find ourselves with no choice but to surrender. With heavy hearts, KISS.”
As yet, there are no rescheduled KISS concert dates.
