Frontman Gene Simmons said: “I’ve said it before, Download Festival audiences are the best.

“They are up for whatever is thrown at them.

“KISS is going to come fully prepared to rock their world in 2020 to say Thank You for always showing up for us.”

Whilst guitarist Paul Stanley promised to bid farewell in spectacular style to thank their UK fans for supporting them for more than four decades.

He added: “Download will be the culmination of 47 years of unapologetic bombast and spectacle.

“We will make this a fitting farewell to a country and its people whose music remains the blood in our veins.”
