Bands and music festivals continue to cancel/postpone due to coronavirus fears, and though KISS' 2020 farewell tour with David Lee Roth is still on, the band is taking one new precaution: no more meet and greets with vans.
KISS manager Doc McGhee said in a statement to Blabbermouth that the band members "have been advised to temporarily" call off the events. He continues, "Our Meet and Greets have always offered us and you our fans a unique opportunity to literally stand shoulder to shoulder together. After many discussions with experts in the field, we have been advised to temporarily cancel these events given the reality that we do this nightly for a hundred or more fans. Shows will continue as scheduled and we look forward to resuming our time with you backstage."
KISS' tour hits Texas tonight (3/10) and the current leg wraps up this weekend. Then they head to South America, Europe, and then it's back to the US in late summer / early fall (including Atlantic City, Upstate NY, and more). Their KISS Kruise goes down from October 30 - November 4 off the coast of Miami, and the band have a final NYC date planned for July 17, 2021. All dates here.
