Michael Jackson tribute show drops KISS from lineup

LOS ANGELES

Jackson fan clubs were calling for a boycott of the upcoming tribute show after it was announced KISS would be performing.

Fans revolted because in an interview shortly after Jackson died, KISS bassist Gene Simmons shared his suspicions that Jackson was a pedophile.

Promoters said they didn't know about the comments when they booked KISS for the show.

"Michael Forever: The Tribute Concert," takes place Oct. 8th in Cardiff, Wales.
