KISS postponed their show at USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City, UT earlier tonight (September 14) due to Gene Simmons having to undergo a “medical procedure.” This news comes after the band previously postponed their September 16 show at Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA until March 6 and their September 20 show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA until March 4. Simmons commented:
“Apologies to the fans in Salt Lake City. We will come back and do the show at a later date. The truth is, I have to fly to LA to do a medical procedure. Nothing serious. But it must be taken care of now. Thank you for your good wishes. All is well.”
KISS have postponed their September 20 show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA until March 4, 2020. The concert was supposed to serve as the final date on the second North American leg of the band’s “End Of The Road” tour. The following statement was issued:
“Due to unforeseen scheduling issues, the KISS: End of the Road Tour concert currently scheduled for September 20 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles is postponed. The new date for this event will be March 4, 2020. There is nothing you need to do as your tickets will be valid for that new date. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date please reach out to your point of purchase for refund options.”
During KISS’ August 29 show in Cincinnati, OH, the band were selling misspelled city-specific shirts at their official merch booths. The shirts had an extra “T” in the city’s name and they were going for $50 each, despite the mistake.
Jesse Hughes is streaming his cover of KISS’ “God Of Thunder.” This track will appear on his new covers album, “Eagles Of Death Metal Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote,“ which will be released on June 7.
KISS have announced that they will be wrapping up the second North American leg of their “End Of The Road” tour with a September 20 show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. The concert is expected to be the band’s last date before they head out on the “Kiss Kruise IX” on October 30. The group commented:
“KISS’s arena show on this ‘End Of The Road’ tour has seen us raise the bar for spectacle and bombast. Our plans for this show will have us pull out all the stops to make this night all the more groundbreaking and ground-shaking. We can’t wait.”
According to The Blast, the dishwasher who accused Gene Simmons (KISS) of inappropriately touching her private parts has filed a request to dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice. It is unclear if a settlement was reached, but the fact that she filed seems to indicate that some sort of deal was made. Once a judge signs off on the request, the case will be closed. Back in December 2018, the woman, who was working at one of Simmons’ Rock & Brews restaurants in 2016, says the musician was visiting the establishment when his manager told her to get closer to him for a picture, but when she did, he allegedly “reached over and forcefully placed his hand on her vagina completely covering it.” The woman says she tried to stop him and that she showed the photo to her coworkers. The suit went on to say Simmons was acting “sexually charged” with other women that night and that he was touching their hands and telling them to unbutton their shirts. This news comes after Simmons previously settled a separate lawsuit for sexual assault last year.
