Gene Simmons has offered an update on how he’s doing after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.

Simmons shared via Twitter, “During my quarantine (thanks to the vaccine, I’m really fine. Thanks [sic] you for asking.) my security guy bought me this comic, which was in the display window of a comic book store. KISS Comics Monthly. Get em!”

When a Twitter user named Joe responded saying “Vaccinated and still caught Covid,” Simmons replied, “Joe, vaccine protects you about 95%. However, you can still get Delta Covid variant. I did…But the effects are minimal, if you’ve been vaccinated twice. Without vaccine = hospital, pain and maybe death. Do your research. You’ll come off much brighter.”

As previously reported, KISS was forced to postpone four shows on their “End of the Road” farewell tour due to Simmons testing positive for COVID-19.

KISS shared a statement to their website and social channels saying, “KISS will postpone their next four tour dates. While Paul Stanley recently tweeted that he has recovered from COVID, Gene Simmons has now tested positive and is experiencing mild symptoms.

The statement continued, “The band and crew will remain at home and isolate for the next 10 days and doctors have indicated the tour should be able to resume on September 9th at FivePoint Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates once announced. More information will be emailed to ticketholders directly.”
