Gene Simmons gets sick during KISS concert: 'We're gonna have to stop to take care of him'

Rock group KISS member Gene Simmons updated fans on his health condition after he became weak onstage and had to continue his performance sitting down due to dehydration.

The 73-year-old musician was performing in Brazil with his legendary band when he announced he had to take a breather in the middle of the concert. 

“Ok, kids. Not a big deal. Thanks for your kind wishes. Last night we played Amazon jungle Stadium/Brazil. Humidity and temperature were sky high,” Simmons reassured his fans on Twitter.

“I was dehydrated and was forced to sit for a song. We got back on stage in 5 minutes & finished the show.”
