KISS Cancels Concert Due To Paul Stanley’s Positive Covid Test
KISS has canceled an upcoming show after singer Paul Stanley was informed of a positive Covid-19 test. The show was scheduled to take place in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania on August 26. There will be a make-up date for the show according to the rock band.
The cancellation was announced in the moments before the concert was set to begin. The group posted a statement to Twitter on the same night.
“Tonight’s #KISS show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA is unfortunately postponed due to Paul Stanley testing positive for COVID,” the Tweet read. “More information about show dates will be made available ASAP. Everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated.”
“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,” the band said in a continuation of the statement.
Stanley took to Twitter to assure fans that he is doing alright. “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,” the star said in his emphatic tweet.
