A KISS concert in Pennsylvania was postponed after one of the band's frontmen tested positive for COVID-19.
The "Rock and Roll All Nite" singers announced they were nixing the Thursday show in Burgettstown, Pa., because of co-founder Paul Stanley's diagnosis.
A statement on KISS's website said that Stanley, along with "everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew," had been 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," a statement said.
"The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines," according to the "End of the Road World Tour" organizers.
Stanley said on Thursday that he was experiencing "flu-like symptoms" and "was tested repeatedly and was negative."
"As of late this afternoon I tested positive," Stanley tweeted to his nearly 600,000 followers. "The crew, staff and band have all tested negative once again."
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.— Paul Stanley (@PaulStanleyLive) August 27, 2021
The 69-year-old performer assured fans that despite the diagnosis he was "fine" in an earlier tweet.
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.— Paul Stanley (@PaulStanleyLive) August 26, 2021
KISS originally launched their world tour — dubbed their "final tour ever" — back in 2019, but had rescheduled several stops last year amid the coronavirus pandemic. The band said following Stanley's positive COVID-19 test that "more information about show dates will be made available ASAP."
The postponement came the same day that Kid Rock announced he was forced to cancel a pair of upcoming concerts in Fort Worth, Texas, because "over half the band has f---ing covid (not me.)"
The "All Summer Long" rocker, who was born Robert Ritchie, said he and "many" of his bandmates "have been vaccinated."
