The band commented:

“We are postponing all the remaining European dates of the #EndOfTheRoad tour that were set to take place through June and July 2020. We’ll continue monitoring the global situation and will reschedule the dates as soon as possible.

Ticket holders can hold on to existing tickets for rescheduled dates or contact ticket outlets for options.”

KISS Postpone “KISS Kruise X” To 2021

KISS have postponed “KISS Kruise X” due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will now take place in October 2021. Paul Stanley commented:

“Hey, everybody. I hope you’re staying safe and I hope you’re staying sane. I have to regrettably tell you that this year’s ‘KISS Kruise’ is being postponed until next year. We kind of saw this coming, but we were hoping things would change, but they haven’t. Even if we wanted to do a ‘KISS Kruise’ this year, it would probably be canceled because there are so many restrictions being put in place that you wouldn’t get the cruise you wanted anyway. So ‘KISS Kruise X’ will be ‘KISS Kruise X’ again. And we will see you next year. Hold on to your tickets. The ship is sold out. You don’t wanna lose your place.”

KISS Working On Career-Spanning Book Of Concert Posters

During a Facebook Live chat with Scott Brown, the United States ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa, Gene Simmons revealed that KISS are working on a new book of concert posters. The coffee table book will feature posters from 1973 to 2020.

Simmons said the following:

“Here’s one of the things I’m really excited about, is to put out a huge — we’re working on the deal now — a huge coffee table book. I mean, as big as we can get it, and it’s posters from 1973 until 2020. And these are original posters — KISS posters from the very beginning.”

“It’s interesting historically. When you go back, some of the bands we took out on their first tours. So you’ll see ‘KISS’ with the faces, and you’ll see little ‘AC/DC’. See ‘KISS’ and little ‘RUSH’; these are all bands we took out on their first tour. BON JOVI, MÖTLEY CRÜE, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, SCORPIONS — you name it — we took ’em on their first tour. Not because it’s about, ‘Hey, we know stuff.’ We’re fans too. When you hear something that’s good, you say, ‘Hey, that’s kind of cool.’ And if you have the power — somebody gave us a chance to get up there — carry it forward; pass it forward; give somebody else a chance to get up there. We weren’t some of those assholes who would pull down the volume when the opening act [is on]. That’s all nonsense. You wanna use all the lights and all the sound? Go for it. Just be as good as you can be, ’cause that makes the whole night better. And if fans love the whole night…? Who wants a stinky band opening the show? C’mon.”
