“Gene Simmons wasn’t able to fully “Rock ‘N’ Roll All Night” during a recent KISS concert — but he still did his best!
During the rock band’s show in Manaus, Brazil on April 12, the vocalist and bass player became ill onstage and needed to pause the show before sitting down for the remainder of the performance.
“Hold on, hold on,” singer and guitarist Paul Stanley told the audience mid-show, according to fan videos. “We’re gonna have to stop.”
“We know how much you love Gene, and he’s obviously sick. We’re gonna have to stop to take care of him, because we love him, right?” continued the rocker, 71. “Let’s give Gene a really loud, ‘Gene!’ One, two, three — Gene!”
