Paul Stanley Thought His Latest Bout with the Flu Could’ve Been Deadly
Paul Stanley opened up about his recent bout with the flu, which resulted in KISS having to cancel three shows on the tail end of their farewell tour.
During a pre-show soundcheck event before the band’s show in Indianapolis on Nov. 25, Ultimate Classic Rock reports Stanley said, “[This time] I literally… I was wondering if it was my time.” Stanley, however, shook off that dark sentiment and said, “But anyway, I’m here, and it’s awesome.”
Three days prior to the Nov. 25 show in Indianapolis, Stanley took to social media and shared, “Toronto And Ottawa… I’ve done everything possible to get onstage and be a part of the incredible 2 1/2 hour celebration we planned but this flu has made it impossible. I along with Gene, Tommy and Eric couldn’t be more disappointed and send our deepest apologies.”
In addition to shows in Toronto and Ottawa, KISS was also forced to cancel their Nov. 24 show in Knoxville, Tenn. due to Stanley’s illness.
