You wanted the best, and you got a refund: fans hoping to meet the members of KISS on the band's End of the Road tour are in for some bad news. With coronavirus fears increasing across the country, Gene Simmons and company have pulled the plug on planned meet-and-greet sessions before the shows.

According to a statement by the band's manager, Doc McGhee, the members "have been advised to temporarily" call off the meetings, for which "KISS Army" members pay handsomely.

"Our Meet and Greets have always offered us and you our fans a unique opportunity to literally stand shoulder to shoulder together," the manager shared in the statement. "After many discussions with experts in the field, we have been advised to temporarily cancel these events given the reality that we do this nightly for a hundred or more fans. Shows will continue as scheduled and we look forward to resuming our time with you backstage."
