I'm seeing him at HRH on December 3rd

Fingers crossed he announces a gig in Manchester too.

Very odd considering the comments that Simmons made about Jackson in Classic Rock not long after he died. Watch them get kicked off the bill if that becomes public knowledge...

Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons believes the late Michael Jackson was guilty of child molestation.

“I knew Michael,” Simmons tells Classic Rock. “I ran into him a few times. I met him the first time before he became the superstar, when he was sort of teenagey, when he was still a Jackson Five. This was in the Cher days, when Cher and I lived together.

“But as time moved on, and no matter what my fond memories and fond images of Michael were, with one allegation of paedophilia after another and another and another… Oh dear.

“I knew some of the musicians he toured with, and specifically one who quit because of seeing boys coming out of the hotel rooms. And then you factor in that his travel agent was put on the stand and in court said that she was authorised to fly to Brazil and bring boys back to America for him…

“Well, you know, where there’s smoke there’s fire. There’s no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.

“Michael’s on tape going, ‘Give the kids Jesus juice.’ Which is wine. I mean, it’s just endless.

“There’s never been a single female of any age that I’ve ever known about who has ever made a claim that she has had a physical relationship with Michael, ever.

“In fact, while he was alive, I never heard about mature men ever making that claim either – and believe me, you can’t keep it a secret. If you’re a celebrity, somebody somewhere will say, ‘Oh yeah, I shagged him.’

“The only sexual references ever made about Michael Jackson that were made by anyone, anywhere around the world, have always been made by kids, and specifically males usually 10 to 14 years of age; never females, that age or older, and never grown men.

“Oh, I don’t think this is going away any time soon.”

Lots of MJ fans up in arms about it on the internet. Must admit that I'm suprised at their inclusion on the bill, though I won't be suprised if they are mysteriously withdrawn before it goes ahead.

Was bound to happen really, and I'm glad it did.

They could use that date to do a full UK gig though

I am sure that they will be touring soon.

I guess any publicity is good publicity

Let's hope it stirs some people in to reconsidering why these allegations were made, and MJ's bizarre post-mortem lionisation. Whether he molested kids or not he's on record as saying he liked to sleep with them and he settled one case out of court for millions of $, which AFAIC you just don't do if you're 100% innocent. The guy was creepy and talking about him like he was a saint is plain creepy too. Good on Gene for saying what he did. (Plus I'd have thought twice about seeing Kiss on that bill, much better if they play their own gig.)
