KISS postpone Australian tour launch due to illness

KISS have been forced to postone the start of an upcoming Australian tour due to illness.

“We were due to leave the U.S. tomorrow to kick off their eagerly awaited ‘End Of The Road’ tour in Perth this Saturday November 16,” shared the band on social media on November 11. “Due to a bad case of influenza, doctors have advised Paul Stanley to rest for the next few days and not to undertake the long trip from Los Angeles to Perth.

“With the expectation of Australian audiences high, KISS don’t want to not give 100% and so have made changes to the Australian and New Zealand dates.

“The Perth RAC Arena concert on November 16 has been rescheduled from the beginning to the end of the Australian tour and will now take place on Tuesday December 3,”
continues the band. “All tickets to the November 16 concert are valid for the December 3 show and no exchange is necessary. Simply present your existing ticket(s) at RAC Arena on the new date. For patrons unable to attend on December 3, a refund is available until November 25.

“After the Australian dates end on December 3, KISS depart immediately for a Japanese tour. Therefore, the show originally on December 3 at Spark Arena, Auckland New Zealand cannot be rescheduled and will unfortunately be cancelled.”

“We sincerely apologize to fans,”
KISS adds. “The Auckland date will be re-planned for a later stage of the ‘End Of The Road’ World Tour. All tickets to the Spark Arena concert will be refunded from the point of purchase.

“The remainder of the tour remains unchanged and will now kick off at Adelaide Entertainment Centre on November 19.”

KISS will wrap up the extended, multi-year farewell trek in New York on July 17, 2021; the band’s manager recently confirmed that the group are planning to reunite with all of their former band members during their final concert.
