Kiss tribute to victims of Manchester bombing
Jewish Telegraph, June 2017
ROCK legends Kiss were forced to cancel this week’s Manchester Arena show.
But the foursome have been showing their solidarity with the city during the European leg of their Kissworld tour.
Kiss — with Jewish founder members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley — were due to perform in Manchester on Tuesday.
But after last week’s suicide bombing at the Arena which killed 22 people, the band had to call off the show.
Their other three UK gigs went ahead — in Glasgow, Birmingham and London — during which they led a silent tribute.
“We think it only right for a moment’s silence for our brothers and sisters, mums and dads in Manchester,” lead singer Stanley said in Birmingham on Sunday.
“God bless Manchester; God bless freedom.”
The band also paid tribute during last week’s concerts in Frankfurt and Rotterdam.
