Older news from when things were brighter.....
It seems that the chance of a tour of Europe, Australia & Japan looks very good at the minute. The band have been totally surprised and overwhelmed at the response to the Farewell Tour and it is already shaping up to be bigger than the Alive/Worldwide tour. It will be the biggest grossing Tour in the US this year by far. It has been said from a source very close to the band that they will do Europe and Australia/Japan. Currently they are re-scheduling so many things at present that it's hard enough coping with the US, so no definite dates or timescales can be given.
Firstly before I say anymore please note that NONE OF THIS IS CONFIRMED, but things are certainly starting to look up for a European tour. I have heard the following news bits from a very good source very close to the band:-

They are negotiating another extension for their contract for more shows in Japan, Australia and Europe at the moment. This is no official news, but comes from a reliable source.
The US tour is going so well that it looks likely that the it will indeed make it over to Europe. Both ticket sales and merchandising are going through the roof, which may have swayed the decision, but nothing is confirmed. I've been told that they are booked in the US until late July/August so if it does happen it will probably be later in the year.On 28th May page 451 of Teletext (Channel 4) had the following article:-
Hopes are rising that Kiss may be coming to the UK later in the year as
was interviewed on KNAC recently (2nd June) as you can guess when Paul was asked the question "are you gonna

I am hoping to have something more definite about a tour next week, as soon as I find out more I'll post it here.
