Washington [US], September 1 (ANI): Popular rock band Kiss postponed its next four concerts after one of its members, Gene Simmons, tested positive for COVID-19.

The band made the announcement on Tuesday via a statement posted on Twitter, saying that the musicians and crew members will have to stay at home and self-isolate for the next 10 days.
The statement read, "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 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 Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA," the band's statement continued.
