Gene Simmons says his KISS co-founder, Paul Stanley, does not feel well after catching COVID, but he will be fine thanks to the vaccine… and Gene is urging everyone to get vaccinated too.
The famous rock’n’roller joined “TMZ Live” on Friday to discuss the cancellation of the group’s show in Pennsylvania after Paul tested positive for the coronavirus.
Gene says Paul, who was fully vaccinated, started losing his voice on Thursday and was feeling tired, so the group doctor suggested he and the team get tested for COVID. Enough on, Paul tested positive … and Gene says everyone on the tour was also tested, but all came back negative.
Gene says everyone involved is in quarantine to make sure further tests don’t come back positive. As for Paul, health professionals are advising carriers of COVID to quarantine themselves for 10 days.
Gene says there’s no KISS without Paul, which likely means the band won’t be returning to the stage until September 9 in Irvine, Calif. So upcoming shows in North Carolina, GA, MI, OH, IL, and WI will almost certainly be rescheduled.
Gene assures all KISS fans that Paul will be fine. We’re crossing our fingers for sure.
