KISS have embarked on their End of the Road final world tour after pandemic postponements. Fans who have booked tickets for the End of the Road final world tour will need to be patient as Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, both founders, have been confirmed positive for COVID-19. After an announcement on KISS’ social media channels five days earlier, Paul became the first person to contract coronavirus.
The message read, “Tonight’s KISS concert at The Pavilion At Star Lake in Burgettstown (PA) has been cancelled due to Paul Stanley being positive for COVID. We will soon have more information on show dates.
All members of the tour’s crew and band are fully vaccinated. To protect everyone at every show, the band and crew operate in an independent bubble.
The tour has a full-time COVID safety protocol officer who ensures everyone follows all CDC guidelines.
Paul assured his fans by tweeting, “PEOPLE! I am fine! I’m not in ICU. I can ride 26 miles per day with my heart!
Today’s affected shows include Clarkston, Michigan, Dayton and Ohio Tomorrow, Tinley Park (Illinois) on September 4, Tinley Park, Illinois September 5, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin September 5. KISS will perform in the UK June 10th, 2022 as the headlining act at Download Festival, Donington, England.
Paul stated back in July that it was impossible to reunite with KISS’ original line-up, which included Ace Frehley (and Peter Criss)
Speaking on Sirius XM’s Jim & Sam Show, the 69-year-old said: “I think people yearn for something that is – I was gonna say ‘impractical.’ I would say impossible.
It’s great to be able to reflect on it, but not as much as if you split up with someone and then years later, you think, “Wow. What happened? “Let me go back.” You return and find it isn’t the same. You quickly realize, just like we did, that it didn’t work the first time. It didn’t turn out as planned the second time around.
