Four months after initially testing positive for the Covid-19 virus, Kiss singer / guitarist Paul Stanley tested positive a second time, this time with the Omicron variant. In addition, his entire family has also tested positive.
The Kiss member shared the news on Instagram. âMy Omicron face! Stanley wrote on Instagram alongside a close-up photo of himself. “Yeah. My whole family has it. I’m tired and sniffle. Most of my family have absolutely no symptoms. Do whatever you choose. I’m so glad to be vaccinated.
The band had to postpone touring gigs after Stanley and lead singer Gene Simmons tested positive for Covid-19 in August 2021. After Stanley tested positive, the band postponed a show in Pennsylvania. It was later announced that Simmons had tested positive, forcing the band to postpone four more concerts.
âI had been ill with flu-like symptoms and tested multiple times and was negative,â Stanley wrote on Twitter after his first diagnosis. âAt the end of the afternoon, I tested positive. The crew, staff and party all tested negative again. More soon.”
The rock icons were in the middle of their End Of The Road tour, which was to be their last concert series after nearly five decades of banding. They managed to complete the American stage in October.
After recovering, Simmons spoke openly to TalkShopLive about the virus and those who would not get vaccinated against the virus.
Simmons said, âIf you are willing to walk among us without being vaccinated, you are an enemy.
âI don’t care about your political beliefs,â Simmons added, speaking of the tour dates KISS had to postpone. âYou are not allowed to infect anyone just because you think you have rights that are delusional,â Simmons, 72, said. âYou don’t have the right to pass a red light – in fact, the government has the right to tell you to stop. “
