KISS singer-guitarist Paul Stanley has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

The news comes just hours after Stanley and his bandmates pulled the plug on their Thursday show in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania at the last minute — sparking unfounded speculation that Stanley was suffering from heart issues. Although Stanley took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to shoot down the rumor, he didn’t mention his positive test.

A rep for KISS says Stanley, his bandmates and all members of the group’s touring crew have been fully vaccinated. “The band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show,” the rep tells TMZ. “The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines.”

KISS is slated to come to Shoreline Ampitheater on September 10th.

Should KISS pull the plug on the rest of the tour?
