What we never expected to happen, actually took place last night in San Jacinto, CA, at the third and last of KISS’ Hit ‘N’ Run shows: KISS show without Paul Stanley.
Although Paul was still at the soundcheck, he was unable to do the show and was taken to hospital.
The show went on with only Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer and a very shortened set list.
Rumor has it, Paul ended up in the hospital with heart problems, whereas it’s also said it was because of throat problems (Paul’s voice had been shot down for these few shows as we reported before).
It’s also possible that he caught a very serious cold at the outdoors Kewadin Casinos gig as that was a very cold night and as usual Paul didn’t wear a shirt.
Gene carried the show and addressed the crowd, before and during the show, that Paul had to see a doctor and asked the fans what they wanted to do. After the first three songs, the band had some fans come up on stage to sing backing vocals on Christine Sixteen, so there was a very long pause before they could continue playing. They played some other obscure songs also, like Goin’ Blind, and Eric Singer sang lead on Nothin’ To Loose.
Fans who were at the show are reporting that the show started an hour late, after the band’s manager Doc McGhee had informed the audience that Paul’s heart was racing 200 beats per minute and had to be rushed to hospital an hour before.
Apparantly, paramedics at the spot had to give Paul an injection to reduce his heart rate.
Also, we were told that meanwhile Paul is back home again.
