Yesterday, KISS postponed a concert in Birmingham, Penn due to Paul Stanley contracting COVID-19. Social media was spreading news of being turned away at the gate until an announcement was made about Stanley’s condition.
KISS posted a tweet about postponing their concert:

Paul Stanley releases his own tweets about his condition and future plans for KISS tour:
PEOPLE!!! I am fine! I am not in ICU! My heart allows me to do 26 miles a day on my bike! I don’t know where this came from but it’s absolute nonsense.

A Full Press Release Will Be Issued Shortly about upcoming KISS shows. I had been sick with flu-like symptoms and was tested repeatedly and was negative. As of late this afternoon I tested positive. The crew, staff and band have all tested negative once again. More to follow.

Those that get the vaccination are not completely immune to COVID-19 it just reduces any severe symptoms that may come from it. Vaccines reduced likelihood of being hospitalized and reduces chance of death that comes from COVID-19.
