KISS cancel show in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, USA after Paul Stanley tests positive for Covid

Bad news in the KISS camp as the group’s concert in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, USA scheduled for tonight (on August 26, 2021) had to be cancelled because frontman Paul Stanley tested positive for Covid. The good news is that Stanley is fully vaccinated so according to the CDC (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention), he should likely be able to combat the Covid symptoms without having to stay in the hospital or lose his life.

The following message was posted on KISS‘ Facebook page earlier today:

“Tonight’s #KISS show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA is unfortunately postponed due to Paul Stanley testing positive for COVID. More information about show dates will be made available ASAP. Everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are 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. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines.”

There were some initial rumours that Stanley had a heart attack but the KISS frontman tweeted a quick message to quash those rumours:

“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.”

The CDC reports: “The Delta variant causes more infections and spreads faster than earlier forms of the virus that causes COVID-19. It might cause more severe illness than previous strains in unvaccinated people.

  • Vaccines continue to reduce a person’s risk of contracting the virus that cause COVID-19, including this variant.
  • Vaccines continue to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization and death, including against this variant.
  • Fully vaccinated people with breakthrough infections from this variant appear to be infectious for a shorter period.
  • Get vaccinated and wear masks indoors in public spaces to reduce the spread of this variant.”
