Kiss said: “We are heartbroken by the atrocity committed against the innocent victims of Manchester.

“We sadly will not to be able to play Manchester Arena on the 30th May. We have always looked forward to these shows and our local fans, but in light of recent events a cancelled rock show seems of such little consequence.”

“We are with you and you are in our prayers.”
