LOS ANGELES — Kiss’s next four concerts have been postponed because Gene Simmons has tested positive for COVID-19, just five days after the band had to cancel a show because Paul Stanley had tested positive, Variety reported.

The band made the announcement Tuesday, saying that the musicians and crew members will have to stay at home and self-isolate for the next 10 days. Simmons’ symptoms are said to be mild, and Kiss’s tour is set to start up again on Sept. 9 at the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California.

After Stanley announced he’d tested positive, the band said in a statement that all of the members and crew were vaccinated.

The tour, titled “The Final Tour Ever: End of the Road,” is set to run through the beginning of October in the United States, followed by a Kiss Kruise in Miami on Oct. 29 and a Las Vegas run of 12 shows starting Dec. 29 at the Zappos Theatre. Other international dates are scheduled through July 2022. JB
