Gene Simmons and co were due to hit the road this summer to continue the extensive last jaunt around the globe.
However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, they are having to postpone their European shows until June and July 2021, with the 17-date run now due to kick off on June 2 in Antwerp, Belgium.

And Gene, 71, has revealed one of the gigs out of the 150 they are yet to complete will require them to wear their thermals.

Speaking on Los Angeles radio station 95.5 KLOS, the ‘Heaven’s On Fire’ rocker said: “We’ve already booked Europe outdoors. Most of the shows have already sold out. We start in summer.
“The vaccines are gonna be out there for everybody, oh, by January, February, March at the latest, but we’re gonna be out there a few months after that. And we’ve literally got 150 cities booked.

We’re gonna continue this tour, which we stopped after doing a 110 cities. We’ve got another 150 cities to go, and who knows how long, but some of the later ones are gonna be jaw-dropping.

“You can’t imagine what we’ve got planned — like, beyond … I said, ‘No. We can really do that?’ They said, ‘Yup. Yup.’ The political people said we can play there. And so there’s gonna be stuff that’s just gonna make you go, ‘That’s the coolest.’

Speaking about the Icy location, he added: There’s one place that’s the coldest place on earth.

“And if you can imagine us playing there with even larger pyro than you’ve ever seen, ’cause there’s nothing around there. But that’s all I’ll say about it.”

In the meantime, the ‘Rock and Roll All Nite’ group have a live-stream set for New Year’s Eve (31.12.20).
