KISS bassist Gene Simmons has tested positive for COVID-19  less than a week after his bandmate Paul Stanley revealed that he had also contracted the disease caused by novel coronavirus, forcing the postponement of three shows on the group’s “End Of The Road” farewell tour.

Earlier today, KISS released a following statement: “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 ticketholders directly.”
