Gene Simmons has made it clear that KISS will only resume their farewell tour after the coronavirus pandemic is completely under control.
In a Facebook Live chat with Scott Brown, the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa, Simmons was asked when the band plans to resume its “End Of The Road” farewell tour.
Simmons replied, “First and foremost, it doesn’t matter about me, me, me and the band and all that stuff. The most important thing is to keep you guys safe, ’cause we love you. Without the fans, we’re nothing and we’re nobody. I’d be asking you, if you were next in line, if you’d like some fries with that. In fact, that person is cooler than I will ever be. So it’s less about self-aggrandizement and more about we are going out there once it’s safe.”
“Once we have a vaccine out there and the scientists — not the politicians — are telling us, ‘Okay, open the doors. Celebrate life. Go out there and enjoy yourself.’ Then we’re going out there,” Simmons added.
Simmons has been raising awareness about social distancing and has asked fans to wear masks to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
KISS launched their “End Of The Road” tour in January 2019. The tour is scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City.
