KISS and Kid Rock have been forced to axe shows due to COVID positives.
The rockers have scrapped a gig in Pennsylvania following singer Paul Stanley’s coronavirus diagnosis, and Kid Rock has axed his upcoming weekend concerts in Fort Worth, Texas after most of his band tested positive for COVID-19.
Stanley, who is fully vaccinated and feeling fine, has taken to social media to update worried fans following reports suggesting he had suffered a heart attack.
“PEOPLE!!! I am fine!” he tweeted on Thursday. “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 representative for the band insists everyone on the KISS farewell tour are “fully vaccinated,” adding, “The band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines.”
Meanwhile, Kid Rock also took to Twitter to update fans after cancelling his weekend shows.
“I am pissed,” he raged. “Over half the band has f***ing covid (not me), and before u s*** for brains bloggers and media trolls run your mouths, many of them, like me, have been vaccinated.
“I was gonna come and rock the house anyway, play acoustic, DJ or even just Juggle… But seriously, s*** is way out of my hands on this one. I am beyond upset and you real ones know I would never cancel if I absolutely didn’t have too. For this, I am sorry.”
He later added: “God bless our military, especially those who lost their lives today in Afghanistan. I am way more upset about that than some stupid virus and missing a couple shows (sic). My heart bleeds for them and their loved ones.
“I hope we bomb the s*** out of those f***s and send a clear message… But I am worried (President Joe) Biden is too much of a woke p**sy. Say a prayer for the fallen, count your blessings and God Bless America.”
