Kiss have added further dates to their incredible End Of The Road tour in June and July 2020 – just hours after cancelling Australian dates due to frontman Paul Stanley’s ongoing illness.
“Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country,” Paul Stanley told Aussie fans. “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.”
“We are devastated with the cancellation of the Australian tour,” organisers continued. “We’ve been in constant contact with the band in the past few days hoping for a positive outcome.
“We know how much fans were looking forward to the tour. We send our best wishes to Paul for a speedy recovery.”
Ticketholders to the upcoming dates will receive automatic refunds if purchased by credit card, while those who purchased from an agency by cash of EFTPOS will be contacted within the next 15 days to arrange for a full refund.
Meanwhile, Kiss will be offering VIP experiences and special Kiss Army fan presales for the new European and South African shows.
VIP experiences may include a personal photo opportunity with the band, access to an exclusive pre-show lounge and a behind the scenes tour. Fans can visit www.kissonline.comfor more information.
“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years,” said the band.
“This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. Kiss Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in: Unapologetic and unstoppable.
