KISS have officially called off their European summer tour. The dates were due to get under way on 9 June in Paris, with some shows including their appearance at Download UK previously cancelled. Now the whole run has been postponed, with the band saying they hope to reschedule “as soon as possible.”
The band said in a statement: “We are postponing all the remaining European dates of the ‘End Of The Road’ 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.”
Paul Stanley also said: “We will be back as soon as possible, and in the meantime we want to say to the Kiss Army in Europe, stay safe.”
Gene Simmons added: “To all our European fans, stay healthy and we will be back rocking you all very soon.
