KISS postpone PA show, Paul Stanley tests positive for COVID-19

The legendary KISS were forced to postpone their show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA late last night, August 26th, due to lead and backing vocalist, rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley testing positive for COVID-19. The band released the below statement on Thursday evening:

Tonight’s KISS show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA is unfortunately postponed due to Paul Stanley testing positive for COVID. 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.

Speaking on the news and the status of upcoming KISS shows, Paul took to social media on Thursday evening to issue the following statement: “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.”

Apparently, rumors of Paul being in the ICU after suffering from heart issues were being spread through social media prior to the scheduled show on Thursday evening, so Paul took to his Twitter account to assure fans that he is doing fine: “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.”
