They'd be better off doing a proper farewell tour (including another Vegas residency) and packing it in. Make nice with Ace & Peter (lifes too short for grudges), get them on for Rock and Roll All Night at each show and sail off into the sunset...

Totally agree they seem to be a rudderless ship right now though.

Tommy can work on archive Kiss releases, Eric can rejoin Alice Cooper's band, Gene can do whatever Gene wants and Paul can do Soul Station & paint.


Less than 12 months from them blowing us all away at Download and the belief is fading ....

Strange that they are pretending that the tour never existed and have not said anything. That is tough on fans who had booked flights and hotels but I think it must be because of security concerns and to say something would only put the issue in the spotlight and make any future touring plans very difficult to promote.


Fully agree :!:

Be interesting to see how they handle the question if anyone manages to bring it up on this years kruise.
Has anyone else noticed how Paul just turns his head and makes absolutely no comment for some of the questions put to them?
Saying that, some of them are pretty lame!

I Wouldn't read to much into it they originally cancelled the unmasked tour before they eventually came here sure there's a good reason , didn't Gene have a small heart scare or something .

And I was at standing there waiting , Wembley Arena in 1980 when they cancelled...it got ugly...It's not just a matter of " Oh no worries," some of us spend serious money...I had tickets for all 3 German gigs...plus flights plus hotels.....it adds up..

Doesn't your travel insurance cover all (or some of) these costs?

Most definitely they should at least explain why. Just want to apologize guys didn't think about the people who acutely booked hotels etc sorry.

I think the reason why they are not announcing anything is because an American tour has likely took its place, and if they say that, Americans will be hounding them for the dates and it could be possible that not everything is finalised yet.

And, Gene posted on the 29th Nov. about seeing him in Europe, so can we assume that it was still going to go ahead even after the attacks. Probably.

I know losing money is a pain and this cancellation without any reason has been poorly handled, I hope that they are all healthy.
Should Download be the last time they play our shores then at least they went out with a bang.
