Kiss band postponed concert because leader Gene Simmons needed surgery


It was the last show scheduled before the Australian farewell tour began in November.

Simmons wrote on Twitter that the reason for the postponement was because of his health problems: “I apologize to Salt Lake City fans. We’ll be back and holding a concert again. The truth is, I had to fly to Los Angeles for surgery. Nothing serious but I have to take care now. Thank you for your good wishes. Everything is fine. ”

The Salt Lake City show was part of the band’s “farewell tour,” “The Final Tour Ever.”
