The promoters of the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert have heard fans loud and clear. Gene Simmons, who accused Michael of being a pedophile, and his band KISS, have been taken off of the roster.
M.J.’s fans where furious after TMZ posted a story last year in which Gene said,
“There is no question in my question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.”
Promoters of the concert told TMZ that:
“We have listened to Michael’s fans and are grateful to have been alerted to these unfortunate statements by Gene Simmons. Under the circumstances we fully agree that even though KISS is a band Michael admired we have no choice but to rescind our invitation to them to appear in our tribute concert.”
