KISS cancels Australian tour due to illness but will continue rest of tour concluding July 17, 2021 in NYC


former Toronto Phantom of the Opera star is too sick to perform

Promoters One World Entertainment and TEG Live today announced on kissonline.com that KISS frontman, Paul Stanley who also starred in the Toronto production of Phantom of the Opera in 1999, has been forced to pull our of the Australian leg of the “Kiss: End of the Road” world tour due to illness. As a result, the Australian leg of the “End Of The Road” tour has been cancelled.

The announcement said that “Kiss and both promoters are absolutely gutted by the news and sincerely apologize to fans.”

Earlier this week, it was announced that U.S. doctors and advised lead singer Paul Stanley to rest due to a bad case of influenza. This prompted the rescheduling of the tour’s first show in Perth to the end of the run and the cancellation of the New Zealand shows.

It was hoped the extra few days of rest would allow Stanley the chance for a complete recovery. Unfortunately Stanley now has an additional infection in his throat requiring complete vocal rest and medication for at least two weeks or longer.

Singer Paul Stanley stated, “Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country. 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 promoters and fans the world over are wishing Paul Stanley best wishes for a speedy recovery.

This is just an unfortunate setback for KISS as they will then close out 2019 with shows in Japan followed by another 29-date North American tour beginning February 1, 2020 in Manchester, New Hampshire. After that, KISS returns to South America, Europe and Africa before playing a second North American leg next August.

Kiss announced yesterday that their final show will take place July 17, 2021 in New York City.
