It Won’t Affect Their “End of the Road” Tour Though
KISS are currently on their “End of the Road” tour and their schedule continues until October. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the band has canceled their meet-and-greets but their shows will still push through.
Their manager Doc McGhee said in a statement via Blabbermouth: “Our meet-and-greets have always offered us and you, our fans, a unique opportunity to literally stand shoulder to shoulder together. After many discussions with experts in the field, we have been advised to temporarily cancel these events given the reality that we do this nightly for a hundred or more fans. Shows will continue as scheduled and we look forward to resuming our time with you backstage.”
They’re also set to play their final gig on July 17, 2021 in New York with the venue still unannounced. They’re the latest rock act to postpone or cancel events due to the coronavirus scare – other musicians that changed their touring plans include Whitesnake and Slipknot.
Meanwhile, Pearl Jam postponed their upcoming North American tour which was supposed to kick off on March 18 in Toronto. The shows will be rescheduled at a later date. Even the Coachella Festival might be moved from April to October.
