KISS Farewell their farewell tour

Well this certainly does not rock. Kiss have cancelled all of their Australian shows on the End of the Road world tour. The Perth date had already been rescheduled to December 3, but is now cancelled indefinitely.

Earlier this week, the band announced they were moving back the starting tour date in Perth after singer and guitarist Paul Stanley was diagnosed with influenza and was advised by doctors to rest and delay his flight. It was hoped the extra few days rest would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery so the tour could proceed as planned. Unfortunately, in the time since Stanley has picked up an additional infection in his throat requiring complete vocal rest and medication for at least two weeks and possibly longer.

“Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country,” Stanley said in a statement. “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. With heavy hearts, KISS.”

Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG Live said they were devastated about the cancellation of the Australian tour. “We’ve been in constant contact with the band in the past few days hoping for a positive outcome,” they said. “We know how much fans were looking forward to the tour. We send our best wishes to Paul for a speedy recovery.”

Kiss have cancelled their Australian tour dates including their show at RAC Arena on Tuesday, December 3. Ticketholders can get ticket refunds at point of purchase.
