KISS bassist Gene Simmons tests positive for Covid-19

Right on the heels today of KISS frontman Paul Stanley‘s recent Covid health update, bassist / singer Gene Simmons has revealed he has tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.

According to an official band statement posted on KISS‘ Facebook page earlier today:

KISS will postpone their next four tour dates. While Paul Stanley recently tweeted that he has recovered from COVID, Gene Simmons has now tested positive and is experiencing mild symptoms. The band and crew will remain at home and isolate for the next 10 days and doctors have indicated the tour should be able to resume on September 9th at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates once announced. More information will be emailed to ticket holders directly.

Earlier, KISS frontman Paul Stanley took to Twitter to share an update following last week’s Covid-19 diagnosis:

“My COVID symptoms were MILD compared to many others and let me tell you … It kicked my ass. It’s over now.”

Stanley‘s positive diagnosis caused KISS to postpone four shows on their massive End of The Road World Tour. The trek had just recently restarted on August, 18th in Mansfield, Massachusetts, USA.
