Kiss was forced to postpone last night’s (August 26th) gig at Burgettstown, Pennsylvania’s Pavilion at Star Lake after Paul Stanley tested positive for covid.
Kiss posted a message on social media about the show’s postponement:
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.
After reading online rumors that he had been hospitalized with heart issues, Stanley tweeted to fans: “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.”
There’s been no word yet if other shows will also be postponed. Kiss is next scheduled to play on Saturday night (August 28th) at Raleigh, North Carolina’s Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek.
