According to a posting at KissFanShop.de, KISS appear to have abandoned plans to tour Europe in September. The trek, which was allegedly going to include a performance with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra in Berlin, was reportedly called off because the promoters "were simply not willing to pay what the band was asking for. Other bands constantly tour Europe and never want to miss the world's biggest market of almost one billion possible concert goers. The promoters claimed [that], with the band's shrunken popularity they did not want to take the risk, since KISS have been absent from the media and music scene for too long." In addition, "KISS have not played in South America and Canada in many years. With a handful of Australian and Japanese dates and just 38 U.S. dates to follow, the current tour might be one of the shortest in [the band's] 30-year history."
