Salt Lake City fans were ready to rock out with KISS for their End Of The Road world tour. However, last Friday, one of the bandmates had to ask for a postponement.

On Saturday night, KISS was meant to perform for Salt Lake City residents but unfortunately, something urgent caused the band to postpone the performance.

KISS's bassist and singer, Gene Simmons, 70, took to Twitter to explain the change of plan. In a short post, he explained that he was the cause of the postponement.

He wrote in the post:

“Apologies to the fans in Salt Lake City. We will come back and do the show at a later date. The truth is, I have to fly to LA to do a medical procedure. Nothing serious. But it must be taken care of now. Thank you for your good wishes. All is well.”

The rock band’s latest tour was said to be their final concert tour. Postponing shows appears to be something the band has needed to do throughout their tour.

About 11 days ago KISS postponed their upcoming shows in Oakland and Los Angeles on September 16 and 20, respectively. The band didn’t give an explanation but their official website has since been updated to reflect the new dates.

Monday’s Oakland Arena show was rescheduled for March 6. The show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles was moved to March 4.

The recent postponement came just weeks after Simmons celebrated his 70th birthday in New York. The singer was spotted walking with bandmate Paul Stanley, 67, in the city where they formed KISS in 1973.

The famed rock group also includes Peter Criss, 73, and Ace Frehley, 68. They’re known for their hit songs “Rock and Roll All Nite” and “I Was Made For Lovin' You.”

When the tour was announced on September 19, 2018, it was revealed that the band would perform in North America, Europe, and Oceania. In January, the tour kicked off in Canada and is expected to run until at least December of 2020.

Professional painter David Garibaldi served as the opening act for the North American and European legs of the tour.
