KISS has abruptly canceled their upcoming Australian tour due to vocalist Paul Stanley’s flu attack complications. The supposed 8-date Aussie tour was planned to take place between November 19th to December 1st, which is a part of the band’s End Of The Road farewell tour. The management has begun issuing refunds now, as there will be no rescheduled dates, apparently.
Stanley broke the news in a statement that said he’d developed a throat infection, adding to his previous flu ailment, saying, “Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End of the Road tour of your incredible country. 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.” Stanley was ordered by his doctor to take two weeks off due to his current predicament.
Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG live also issued a statement for the supposed concertgoers, saying, “We are devastated with 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. We know how much fans were looking forward to the tour. We send our best wishes to Paul for a speedy recovery.”
