Days after Paul Stanley announced he had tested positive for COVID-19, further Kiss shows have been postponed following the news that Gene Simmons has now tested positive and is experiencing mild symptoms.
“The band and crew will remain at home and isolate for the next ten days,” a statement from the band on social media says, “and doctors have indicated the tour should be able to resume on 9 September.”
The group has postponed four tour dates so far, and these events are expected to be rescheduled at some point. No further details on the new dates are yet available.
Stanley said he experienced flu-like symptoms and ended up with a positive result after testing negative repeatedly. “I am fine! I am not in ICU! My heart allows me to do 26 miles a day on my bike!” he wrote on Twitter.
Existing tickets will be valid for new dates.
We are postponing the next four tour dates. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates once announced. More information will be emailed to ticketholders directly. pic.twitter.com/b28fmrhWIe
