KISS Cancel July 13 Show In Calgary Due To Flooding Damage

KISS have canceled their July 13 show in Calgary, Alberta due to flooding damage at the Scotiabank Saddledome venue.

Calgary Stampede chief executive Vern Kimball said the concert couldn't proceed due to the damages the facility took on during the city's recent storms.

"We understand that this news is disappointing and we're disappointed too as we wanted to present our guests and our fans with an awesome concert experience," Kimball said in a statement.

"It became evident late (Monday) to the Stampede and the Flames that the services necessary for an acceptable concert experience just weren't available given the current status and limitations of the building."

Carly Rae Jepsen, the Dixie Chicks and Tim McGraw have also been forced to cancel tour dates due to the city's flooding damage.

"Given the size of the four shows, and that they're all intended for indoor setup with tailored effects and lighting, there was no feasible alternative to host any one of these shows at another Calgary venue during Stampede," Kimball added.
