Kiss Cancel Serbian Concert
Legendary rock band KISS have cancelled a concert in Serbia - blaming the political "situation" in the country for their decision to scrap the gig.
The Crazy Nights hitmakers were due to play in the capital city of Belgrade on 15 May (08) as part of their forthcoming European tour.
But the agency organising the concert has now announced the band have pulled out, insisting the rockers felt uncomfortable playing in Serbia so soon after the recent elections which took place in February (08).
Political tensions are also running high in the area after the Balkan state of Kosovo declared independence from the country (17Feb08).
The Lupa agency released a statement apologising to fans and offering to refund their tickets: "The members of the band regret to inform you that the concert has to be cancelled, but the situation in Serbia does not leave them much choice. However, they hope they will perform in Serbia on some other occasion."
