KISS perform without Paul Stanley for 2nd time in their career
“KISS performed during the 23rd Annual Race to Erase MS Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 15, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.
The band performed without Paul for the second time in their career.
The reason for Paul‘s absence was due to his recent surgery to repair a torn bicep tendon.”
The KISS show on April 15, 2016 was a short one with the band performing a mini-set running reportedly at about 18 minutes.
Stanley is expected to be recovered for KISS‘ upcoming “Freedom To Rock” Tour which starts on July 7, 2016.
The first time that KISS performed without Stanley dates back to July 27, 2007 for a show at San Jacinto, California, USA. Stanley was unable to perform on that night due to his heart spontaneously jumping to 190 plus beats per minute where it apparently stayed for over an hour. Paramedics started an IV and gave Stanley a shot to momentarily stop his heart and get it into a normal pattern. Stanley was told that he would be putting himself at risk if he performed that night so Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer performed as KISS without him for the first time.
