Jackson concert organisers admit maybe hiring people who think he fiddled with kiddies "an oversight"

I don't know if they're actually planning to use the title "The Ill-Fated Michael Jackson Tribute Concert" formally, but, boy, it fits.

Latest nightmare for the organisers of the Cardiff concert is having to uninvite Kiss from the bill after being reminded of this:

Some of [Gene] Simmons' harshest comments came last year in an interview with Classic Rock magazine. "Well, you know, where there's smoke there's fire," Simmons said regarding accusations that Jackson abused young boys. "There's no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt."
You know, says Global Events CEO Chris Hunt, perhaps putting Kiss on the bill was a bad idea:
"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 wrote in a statement.
A slightly more interesting question is why Gene Simmons signed up to pay tribute to a man he believes molested kids.

To be fair to Gene Simmons, he's never made any secret of the fact that the 3 things that motivate him are money, money and money. So I'm guessing that money might have had something to do with it!
