LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The rock band Kiss was removed from the line-up for a Michael Jackson tribute concert in Britain, after it was revealed frontman Gene Simmons has called Jackson a child molester, organizers said on Tuesday. The decision to scratch Kiss from the line-up came after Jacksons fans this week expressed anger at Simmons comments. We have listened to Michaels fans and are grateful to have been alerted to these unfortunate statements by Gene Simmons, Chris Hunt, the chief executive of organizer Global Live Events, said in a statement. 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, Hunt said.0 Kiss, a rock band famous for such songs as Rock and Roll All Nite and Detroit Rock City, was a recent addition to the line-up for the tribute concert. The Michael Forever show is planned for October 8 in Cardiff, Wales, and so far the scheduled performers include Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Smokey Robinson, organizers said.
