KISS Concert Postponed After Paul Stanley Tests Positive for Covid
KISS founder Paul Stanley has tested positive for Covid-19, the band announced.
The group –which last performed in Atlantic City on August 21-has postponed its show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date, the venue stated.
“More information about show dates will be made available ASAP. Everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated.’ the band said on its website. “The band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines.”
Stanley immediately took to Twitter to address rumors that he had suffered a heart attack.
“”PEOPLE!!! I am fine! I am not in ICU! My heart allows me to do 26 miles a day on my bike! I don’t know where this came from but it’s absolute nonsense,” he wrote. “A Full Press Release Will Be Issued Shortly about upcoming KISS shows. I had been sick with flu-like symptoms and was tested repeatedly and was negative. As of late this afternoon I tested positive. The crew, staff and band have all tested negative once again. More to follow.”
