KISS Fan Sues Promoter
A KISS fan has sued the promoter of a St. Louis concert last summer, claiming he was injured by debris from a cannon.
The alleged incident occurred during the final song of KISS's set, "Rock and Roll All Nite." William Mueller Junior claims that the cannon "exploded and with great force launched a metal ratchet tie-down strap" that hit him while he was standing at his seat. "Prior to this incident, plaintiff had been diagnosed with a rare brain cancer and had experienced major surgeries and intense radiation therapy. At the time of his injury, plaintiff's body was in a weakened and vulnerable condition. Defendants owed to plaintiff the duty to exercise the highest degree of care for his safety."
The members of KISS were not named in the suit.
