KISS postpones Milwaukee concert, three others, after Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley test positive for COVID-19

The first major Milwaukee concert has been postponed because of positive cases of COVID-19.

KISS frontman Paul Stanley tested positive Thursday, forcing the band to postpone a string of shows over subsequent days, beginning with a planned Pennsylvania concert that was shelved at the last minute.

On Tuesday, the band announced that bassist Gene Simmons, too, has tested positive for COVID-19.

As a result, the band is postponing four more shows, including a Milwaukee date at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater Sept. 5. The band’s members will isolate at home for 10 days, with plans to resume the tour Sept. 9 in California. 

New dates for the postponed shows have yet to be announced. While the KISS show was scheduled to take place at the Summerfest venue during the Big Gig’s run, it was not officially a Summerfest show. The announcement came just one day before a pre-festival kickoff concert at the amphitheater.

“I had been sick with flu-like symptoms and was tested repeatedly and was negative,” Stanley wrote on Twitter Thursday night. “As of late this afternoon I tested positive.”
