KISS STAR Gene Simmons has warned fans they need to be vaccinated to return and see the band’s End of the Road Tour: “I don’t care if you think that the world is flat.” Simmons also claimed that the four members of the band are more famous than the US presidents on Rushmore. the 2 founding members of KISS are on a media blitz over the past few weeks. Simmons and Paul Stanley have given major new interviews promoting the band’s farewell world tour, which kicks of on August 18 in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Before that, they’re going to play at the Festival de Nîmes in France on July 6.
also because of the usual bombast about his and therefore the band’s extraordinary achievements, Simmons also had a stark warning for fans that they might not be admitted to shows if they weren’t vaccinated against the coronavirus. Simmons started off talking about the band’s incredible legacy. He said: “We were four knuckleheads off the streets of latest York who weren’t qualified to try to do anything. We created what’s arguably the foremost recognized four faces on Planet Earth.
“You might not be ready to tell us who is on Rushmore. Some people have said, Elvis. Nope. you’ll not be ready to tell us who the king and queen of Sweden is but everyone in Sweden knows who KISS is.” Talking about continuing with the tour, Stanley recently said: “It’s a tremendous thanks to raising the bar and make our fans proud. I don’t care whether it’s your hundredth KISS Concert or your first. the very fact that you simply are there, we would like to dazzle you and show gratitude.”
Simmons previously added: “We’re going back out on the road. The pandemic is nearly over. Stay safe, get vaccinated, come to the shows. You’ll see the best show on the face of the earth that permits citizenry to possess – that’s us.” But within the new interview, he had a way more stark warning for fans who don’t need to urge vaccinated. Simmons was chatting with local ABC news channel WPVI in Philadelphia. He said: “We’re looking to going back out on the road now that the planet is getting out of the pandemic.
“By the way, vaccinate yourselves so you’ll come to see us and fly airlines. “I don’t care what you think, you ain’t stepping into the shows if you’re not safe. You’re not getting to risk somebody else’s life because you think that the world is flat. “I don’t care what you think, I would like everybody to be safe.” This echoes the recent statements from other high-profile bands who are looking to return to concerts. Earlier this month the Foo Fighters faced a vocal fan backlash after they announced a show at New York’s Madison Square Gardens for June 20. The band said the show would be mask-free but all attendees over the age of 16 had to point out proof of getting had both vaccinations.
