After rescheduling the Perth date of their Australian leg of their world tour, KISS have just announced a complete cancellation of all shows Down Under.
Earlier this week, Paul Stanley was advised to rest over a bout of influenza, resulting in the first Aussie ‘End of the World’ leg date in Perth to be rescheduled.
In a statement, the band said it was hoped that the extra few days would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery.
“Unfortunately, this has not occurred.”
It went on to say that Stanley had an additional infection in his throat requiring complete vocal rest and medication for at least two weeks and possibly longer.
In the same statement, Paul Stanley issued his own.
“Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country,” he wrote.
“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.”
The tour was meant to kick off next week.
