KISS Issues Statement Regarding Belgrade Concert Cancellation

KISS has issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of its May 15 concert at USCE Stadium in Belgrade, Serbia.

"We regret that due to security concerns relayed by U.S. government intelligence and the unwillingness of our tour insurance policy to cover our concert, we have been left with no choice but to cancel our show in Belgrade. Because of our excitement at returning to play for our many Serbian fans, we all share in the same disappointment and it is our hope to return soon."

KISS recently announced that meet-and-greet and pre-show soundcheck packages for the band's upcoming European Kiss Alive/35 Tour are now on sale. The packages are being sold exclusively on, the online destination for Kiss Alive/35 World Tour. These new exclusive VIP packages mark the first time KISS has ever offered meet-and-greets with fans in Europe.

The European tour is set to kick off May 9 in Oberhausen, Germany.
