During last night’s (Wednesday, May 31) KISS concert at the O2 Arena in London, England, the legendary rockers asked for a moment of silence in honor of those who lost their lives in Manchester.
KISS had been scheduled to play at the Manchester Arena on May 30, just one week after a suicide bomb killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande gig at the same venue.
As a result, the Manchester Arena remains closed, which forced the band to cancel its performance.
KISS said in a statement: “We are heartbroken by the atrocity committed against the innocent victims of Manchester.
“We have always looked forward to these shows and our local fans, but in light of recent events, a canceled rock show seems of such little consequence.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected and all the people of Manchester at this difficult time. We are with you and you are in our prayers.”
Several other artists — including BLONDIE and TAKE THAT — also canceled concerts in the wake of the attack.
