Gene Simmons isn’t taking any chances when it comes to rescheduling tour dates postponed by the coronavirus crisis.

During a Facebook Live chat with Scott Brown, the United States ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa, the KISS rocker was asked when the band plans to resume its End of the Road World Tour farewell tour.

“First and foremost, it doesn’t matter about me, me, me and the band and all that stuff. The most important thing is to keep you guys safe, ’cause we love you,” he said. “Without the fans, we’re nothing and we’re nobody. I’d be asking you, if you were next in line, if you’d like some fries with that. In fact, that person is cooler than I will ever be. So it’s less about self-aggrandisement and more about we are going out there once it’s safe.

“Once we have a vaccine out there and the scientists ” not the politicians ” are telling us, ‘Okay, open the doors. Celebrate life. Go out there and enjoy yourself.’ Then we’re going out there.”

Simmons added: “We’ve already done 110 cities in the world (on the End of the Road World Tour). We were coming to New Zealand and Australia, and first time Paul (Stanley, KISS frontman) hurt himself, and that’s been in the papers, and we had to cancel that, and New Zealand as well.

“I promise you, as I’m sitting here today, we look forward to coming back,” he finished.
