The band Kiss has been forced to postpone many of its tour dates after frontman Gene Simmons tested positive for COVID-19. As for now, Simmons is experiencing “mild symptoms,” the group said.
Fellow band member Paul Stanley also tested positive for the virus last week, but has since recovered.

It is being reported that all band and crew members have been vaccinated against the virus, in addition to taking other safety precautions.
A representative said, the band and their crew have operated in a bubble to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows and the tour has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time to ensure everyone closely follows all CDC guidelines.
As a precaution, all band members and crew will be staying home and isolating for 10 days. They expect the tour to resume on Sept. 9.
