Sucks. I know a ton of people that were either there, or on the way.
I'll see if I can get some pics or video of the announcement

This farewell tour came through town 4 years ago, so I decided to pass....good thing.

Good excuse to do a makeup date early next year then just keep doing shows.

They at least fully canceled the show and Ticketmaster said refunds will be issued, so they're not postponing it. I think the only shows they would postpone would be the MSG shows.

It's safe to say Paul didn't blow out his voice like Steven Tyler did! Get it? :lol:

It would be funny if they missed a week worth of shows due to Covid and then made them up after the MSG shows.

From one of the local newspapers.

The KISS concert scheduled for Tuesday night at the Canadian Tire Centre was cancelled at the last minute even as fans were driving through terrible weather conditions to get there.

Ticketmaster confirmed the cancellation on its website.

Some initial reports said the show had been cancelled because of an illness in the band, but as of mid-evening nothing official had been released by KISS as to why the show would not go on.

The concert was to be part of the band’s End of the Road world tour, a farewell excursion for the campy rock legends who have been winding down their touring career with an old-school show that, of course, has included outlandish costumes, blood-spitting, tongue-wagging and plenty of pyro, plus a catalogue of hits spanning 50 years.

The hard-hitting Canadian rock duo, Crown Lands, was scheduled to open the show in Ottawa.

The band released a statement it was due to an illness in the band party. Live Nation posted it too.

KISS has canceled tonight's (Tuesday, November 21) concert at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Earlier today, the venue shared the legendary rockers' statement on social media saying that the show was called off because of "an unforeseen illness in the band party."

Is it just me, or is that oddly worded. If it was someone in the band it would just say illness in band, but it says "band party". Is there someone not in the band that could cause an entire show to be cancelled.

And the weather is terrible, gonna be a shitty drive home for lots of people

It's really shitty weather here. Freezing rain, I would say that has a lot to do with it. And no I did not have a ticket for the show, seen them enough times when Paul could still sing.

Somebody on Reddit is saying they canceled the show because the roads are so bad due to the weather, they realized the crew would never make it to the Toronto show tomorrow in time, and that's a bigger show with more tickets sold. So they canceled the show so the crew would have enough time to get to Toronto. Supposedly whoever tracks the Kiss jet says they already landed in Toronto. That's all just gossip but this is a gossip board so there you go and you're welcome.

They also sent this out to all the VIP members who didn't get the soundcheck for Ottawa. They sound pretty confident they'll be playing tomorrow.

“Due to the cancellation tonight in Kanata, we can offer you both tickets and VIP for the show tomorrow in Toronto. Please read the below options carefully. You must fill out the below link with your selection

If you choose to attend the show in Toronto you will receive show tickets but they will not be in the same location your original seats were. Your original purchase will be refunded. You will be able to attend the same VIP experience you had purchased for Kanata. You must let us know you are attending Toronto by 12pm EST tomorrow, Wednesday November 22nd. You will receive an email from [email protected] with check in information.”

Imagine being a VIP in Ottawa and deciding to take them up on that offer, and then driving in a blizzard to get to Toronto, and they cancel that show too! That would be a blast.

Anyway, we'll know in 24 hours time if they play in Toronto and everything is hunky dory.

It's Toronto. What's the ratio of KISStards to Rushtards in that city, anyway?

The stage was already built in Ottawa when they cancelled.

They’re telling VIP soundcheck people that the tickets will be honored for Toronto tomorrow. So that’s a quick fucking illness and they’re sure whoever is sick will be okay in less than 24 hours. Draw your own conclusions.

No. We're not gonna draw our own conclusions. YOU tell us what the deal is. YOU do the work. You don't sit there and drop hints and then run off and tell us to draw our own conclusions dumbfuck.

I've actually had a lot of people thanking me for my post. I got approximately 9 DM's, 14 emails, and a couple at the grocery store just stopped me and thanked me for the post. We exchanged numbers for a threesome around 9:30 p.m. tonight, so we'll see how that goes. The women looked to have a nice rack and the gentleman looked like he was packing quite the Love Gun, if you know what I mean! :P Anyway, you're terribly mistaken, which goes along with your terrible writing and terrible view points. So at least you're consistent. Thank you and you're welcome!

I highly doubt it was because of the weather, but there is something strange going on.

They cancelled minutes before opening the doors. A bunch of people were trying to get them to open doors to buy merch. (The building has a merch booth right inside the main doors, You have no access to the arena at all)

I can't' see Gene letting an opportunity to sell some merch go by. Kiss is a lot of things, but they show up and play (Live or tape). Doesn't make sense they just decided last minute to say, we can't make a 4 hour drive in some rain and snow...and even though the stage is already set up, lets just bail and go to the next city

I think more likely there was an accident or something while setting up the stage. I can't see any other reason to not open the doors and then try to get everyone out of the area as soon as possible.

Or, it's just as simple as someone got sick.

What if it's something as simple as... the stage was set, everything was fine, but the private jet couldn't land due to the weather. So they said fuck it and continued on to Toronto?

The bad weather did not start until after they had already canceled the show around 6pm. Also, was not as bad as they forecasted. I was driving around til about midnight with no issues at all, and the airport had a few minor delays, but nothing crazy.
