KISS Cancels Las Vegas Residency
The Reason Is Not Covid-Related
Kiss has canceled their upcoming Las Vegas residency, which was slated to kick off in December. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Ticketmaster emailed the ticket holders of the band’s 12-date stand at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino informing them about the cancellation.
Zappos Theater confirmed the news on Twitter as they wrote, “Unfortunately, KISS cancelled their residency.”
Kiss are currently on their Kiss Kruise and have not yet commented on the cancellation. Even so, the Las Vegas Review-Journal cited “soft ticket sales” as the reason and not Covid-related issues.
“There are matters of the heart and then there are matters of the pocket and it’s nice when they both converge. So it’s a very nice payday,” Simmons told Rolling Stone in August about their residency. “They pay well and that’s reason enough. But it’s also easier for the band because you don’t have the wear and tear of traveling.”
“I would highly recommend for everybody to get two Pfizer or Moderna shots, please — for the rest of us,” he added. “Even if you believe the Earth is flat, it’s not… The entire road crew must be vaccinated twice. Nobody gets backstage or onstage without wearing masks, and everybody stays at a safe distance and you’ve got to wash your hands and do everything else the CDC says. Don’t listen to politicians. They’re not qualified. Listen to scientists.”
