Kiss had to cut short an intimate performance in London last night after confetti cannons caused the band breathing difficulties.
The American rock outfit left the stage at the 800-capacity Islington Academy after the cannons blasted confetti into the air during ‘Rock and Roll All Nite’.
Apparently the amount of
carbondioxide concentrated in the air of the arena made breathing difficult for both the band and those members of the audience closest to them.
“Once the confetti cannons went off, we barely made it off stage,” revealed singer Paul Stanley in a statement.
“None of us could breathe or catch our breath. Pretty scary and there was no way we could continue.
“We came out for the encores but couldn't get past one,” continued Stanley, whose bands still managed to play a crowd-pleasing, 12-song set. “All in all, an amazing night that left many breathless!"Kiss played the gig ahead of their forthcoming European tour.
