KISS frontman Paul Stanley has recovered from COVID about five days after testing positive for the virus.

Stanley wrote via Twitter late-Monday that he was back on track after a few painful days with flu-like symptoms.

"My COVID symptoms were MILD compared to many others and let me tell you... It kicked my ass," he wrote, alongside a tired-looking selfie. "It's over now."

The Starchild had reportedly been experiencing some fatigue last week on tour with Kiss when he began to lose his voice. As a result, the entire band and crew was tested for the virus. Stanley's test came back positive and Kiss's 'End of the Road' tour was suspended indefinitely as all members of the band's touring party went into isolation. No other tests came back positive, according to the band.

Kiss's band and crew are fully-vaccinated and masked at all times while they're working. The crew is also operating in bubbles to reduce the possibility of outbreaks that could derail the tour.

Stanley provided an encouraging update Friday from his bed, saying that he had some "really rough days behind and hopefully just a few more ahead" before Kiss would head back out on its tour.

The band should issue an update soon, regarding its September tour dates. It seems unlikely that KISS will get back on the road before this weekend at the earliest. Kiss has seven tour dates between September 1 - 12.

All the members of Kiss's band and crew are reportedly fully-vaccinated so, per the CDC, they do not need to isolate for a full two weeks unless they have symptoms. If they all test negative in the next day or two, Kiss could theoretically be back in business. But there's also the matter of when Stanley will be strong enough to perform a two-and-a-half hour rock concert.
