Kiss, Motley Crue Concert Postponed After Truck Carrying Pyrotechnics Flips on the Highway
A truck carrying pyrotechnics for Kiss and Motley Crue was involved in an accident in Ohio while en route to tonight’s scheduled show at the DTE Energy Music Theater near Detroit, Mich. A joint statement on Kiss’s website includes the pictures below while announcing that tonight’s show has been rescheduled for tomorrow (Sept. 6).
It’s not clear what caused the accident, or exactly when the accident occurred. Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx tweeted a few photos from the scene, along with a message that the truck driver is OK. The tour was in Nashville on Tuesday night.
“We owe you the show you expect and deserve, so we’ve jointly decided to give our crews the 24 hours necessary to piece everything together to make it possible,” the statement reads. Thursday night was a night off for both bands, before their tour heads to the Chicago area on Friday.
