After 45 years rock and rolling all night (and partying every day), KISS say they're pulling the plug while they're still "on top," with a farewell world tour. (Oct. 31)
KISS' lead vocalist, Gene Simmons, took to Twitter Friday to hint as to why tour dates are being postponed for the band's "End of the Road World Tour."
Oakland, Los Angeles, and now Salt Lake City are among the cities that are rescheduled for a later date.
"Apologies to the fans in Salt Lake City. We will come back and do the show at a later date," Simmons tweeted from his official Twitter account. "The truth is, I have to fly to LA to do a medical procedure."

Simmons assured fans that the medical procedure was "nothing serious. But it must be taken care of now. Thank you for your good wishes. All is well."
Last week, we reported that Oakland would be rescheduled for March 2020. The concert was initially scheduled for Sept. 16. The Staples Center in Los Angeles was set for Sept. 20 and has also been rescheduled for March 2020. The Staples Center reportedly served as KISS' last stop in North America.
Luckily for fans, tickets bought for postponed shows will still be valid for new concert dates. Head to Ticketmaster.com for more information on tour dates and venues.
KISS was recently in Des Moines, performing at Wells Fargo Arena Sept. 3. With more than 9,000 people in attendance, co-lead vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley gave the final farewell to Iowans and thanked the KISS Army for their loyal love and support.
