Adventure Bay Charters owner Matt Waller said his company did not use blood or berley to attract great white sharks to its tourism cage diving business but instead used sound waves.

The company uses music to "appeal to the electroreception sense through acoustics in the water".

"We don't use blood and bait to attract sharks," Mr Waller said.

However his condition deteriorated and it was the end of the road for the entire Australian tour.

It has left the Newcastle Supercars concert without a headline act so the Saturday night concert has been cancelled.

Supercars general manager Kurt Sakzewski said they could not replace a band like KISS in seven days.

"Given a couple of months we might have been able to find somebody but at seven days' notice to try and find another act that would match up with what the KISS fans expectations are — it's just too difficult to pull that one off," he said.

While human fans will miss out, the band [bass guitarist Gene Simmons, lead guitarist Tommy Thayer, and drummer Eric Singer] will still produce rock 'n' roll vibrations for sharks without its lead singer.

"Gene, Eric and Tommy have said that this special show must go on, so the three KISS members will perform for the sharks as planned," a spokesperson for Airbnb said.

Mr Waller said he hoped the shark concert was not the last show.

"They're going out on a good note but there a lot of fans out there who really want to get in and hear these guys one more time, and I really hope Paul gets better and gets back on the road to do it for the fans," he said.
