Back in December 2017 a woman, who was said to be a “longtime on-air personality for a local rock station,” filed suit against Gene Simmons (KISS), due to sexual battery, gender violence, battery, gender discrimination, etc. Now, Billboard are reporting that Simmons and the plaintiff told Los Angeles County Supreme Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy that they had reached a settlement. The terms of the agreement have not been made available and both sides still need to file an official request for dismissal. This news comes after Simmons previously said it was dismissed back in April.
During a chat with Sweden’s Expressen, Gene Simmons said KISS will be launching a three year long world tour in January 2019. He went on to say it will be the band’s “most spectacular tour ever” and that it will hit “all continents.” This news comes after Paul Stanley previously promised a “major” tour.
During an appearance on CNBC‘s “Squawk Box”, Paul Stanley revealed that KISS will be heading out on a “major” tour next year. He said the following: “A major KISS tour, I would say, starts at the end of January. It hasn’t been announced yet, so don’t tell anybody.” “Breaking news.” He also added: “This will be the biggest tour we’ve done, the biggest show we’ve done.” No further details are available.
Back in December a woman, who was said to be a “longtime on-air personality for a local rock station,” filed suit against Gene Simmons (KISS), due to sexual battery, gender violence, battery, gender discrimination, etc. Now, Simmons claims that lawsuit has since been dismissed. He told Australia’s News Corp the following about that: “It’s already dismissed with prejudice. We’re going after that person. When I was growing up and somebody said something bad about you, you would be able to sue back for slander.” He also added: “There’s presumption of innocence, and I don’t go into the night softly. I’ve had a long 45-year career. Anybody wants to start something, you picked the wrong guy.”
