Twister Faith: Mother Nature forces brief postponement of KISS concert in Toledo

A tornado touched down in Ohio last night, briefly postponing KISS‘ concert in Toledo.

And Gene Simmons’ weighed in on it via Twitter.

“Believe it or not — tornado right over our heads at concert,” the bassist tweeted. “People from street coming into hall. Show has been stopped #Toledo.”

KISS were in town performing at the Huntington Center in Lucas County, the latest stop of their Freedom to Rock Tour. The area was placed under a tornado warning.

The Toledo Blade reports that the show resumed once the warning expired around 8:30 p.m. The storm rolled through several counties between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., damaging trees, structures and power lines. There were no reported incidents at the Huntington Center. Several twisters had been spotted in Ohio and the Midwest yesterday, and the National Weather Service had issued weather alerts for several counties in Ohio.
