Likely not a surprise given recent events, but confirmation has just come through to us from KISS’ PR that the Manchester date on their upcoming UK tour (30th May) has been cancelled. Full statement is below.
We are heartbroken by the atrocity committed against the innocent victims of Manchester. We sadly will not to be able to play Manchester Arena on the 30th May. We have always looked forward to these shows and our local fans, but in light of recent events a cancelled rock show seems of such little consequence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected and all the people of Manchester at this difficult time. We are with you and you are in our prayers. – Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer
Refunds for the 30 May Manchester Arena concert will be granted to all ticketholders at the point of purchase.
