KISS icon Gene Simmons spoke in the recent interview with Good Morning Los Angeles and made an official statement about their ‘End Of The Road’ farewell tour.
As you might remember, most of the bands like Alice Cooper, Pearl Jam, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden and more, decided to postpone or cancel their events due to the danger of the coronavirus.
In the conversation, Gene Simmons finalized the latest status of the ‘End Of The Road’ tour and stated that these shows wouldn’t resume until the outbreak ends. Gene said that putting the fans and themselves in danger would be foolish.
Also, Gene mentioned that considering the money would be an irresponsible attitude while people’s lives are in danger. Furthermore, Gene revealed a big check he donated to the hospital in Los Angeles and showed how kind-hearted he is.
Here is what Gene Simmons said:
“We’re gonna go back once it’s safe, once there’s a cure. We would never put out fans in danger, or ourselves.
We can talk about the big numbers and that means billions of dollars that are lost. The rich and famous and the good-looking folks who wear silly outfits like this and have silly hair like this…”
Gene Simmons continued:
“Billions of dollars just flushed down the drain. So what? You’re talking about single mothers and families who live from check to check.
The people who actually put on these concerts — the security people, the road crews, all that stuff — this is survival. The folks in and around the infrastructure are the people who are suffering the most”
“We have nothing to complain about. Stop complaining — I keep saying that all the time…
There are some miserable things going on out there; people are losing their lives. …We’re in this together — the only way is the lonely way.”
