Following the tragic events in Manchester and the temporary closure of the Manchester Arena, the scheduled concert of KISS’ Kissworld Tour on May 30 has been cancelled.

“We are heartbroken by the atrocity committed against the innocent victims of Manchester,” said the band in a joint statement.

“We sadly will not to be able to play Manchester Arena on May 30. We have always looked forward to these shows and our local fans but in light of recent events a cancelled rock show seems of such little consequence.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected and all the people of Manchester at this difficult time. We are with you and you are in our prayers.” 

Refunds for the 30 May Manchester Arena concert will be granted to all ticketholders at the point of purchase.
