GENE SIMMONS Tests Positive for COVID-19; KISS Postpone More Shows


KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has tested positive for COVID-19.  The band have now had to postpone an additional four dates on their current ‘End Of The Road’ farewell tour just four days after frontman Paul Stanley was confirmed to have the virus as well.

Stanley, Simmons, the rest of KISS, and all members of their crew have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, however Paul still caught the virus, causing the band to postpone a number of dates on the tour.  Paul shared a health update last night, expressing that his COVID symptoms were mild compared to those experienced by others, saying: “It kicked my ass. It’s over now.”

Now a new social media post revealed Gene Simmons had contracted the coronavirus and that there would be further postponed shows. Gene is said to be experiencing mild symptoms and the rest of the band and crew will isolate for the next 10 days.
