Well, it seems to happen to everyone at some point or another. Like much of contemporary society, rock legend Paul Stanley is now a Swiftie. The Kiss star sang the praises of Taylor Swift after attending one of the pop-icon’s “The Eras Tour” concerts over the weekend in Los Angeles. Want further confirmation? The Star Child even wore a Taylor Swift T-shirt for a photo.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that Swift’s catalog-spanning “The Eras Tour” has dominated the world in 2023 and shows no signs of slowing down. According to a recent report in The New York Times, the massive globe-spanning run is averaging about $14 million in ticket sales each night. 

Stanley and his family were part of the gigantic crowd on Aug. 4th at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California; one of six concerts at the arena where the initial North American leg of The Eras Tour is wrapping up.

 

In a Tweet (or is that an X now? I don’t know…) from August 5th, Stanley writes: “Took Erin, Sarah and Emily to see Taylor Swift Last Night![Six] shows at SoFi Stadium for a total of A HALF MILLION PEOPLE and I know why… PHENOMENAL SHOW BY A PHENOMENAL ARTIST. Thanks to her staff for rolling out the red carpet for us.”

Swift has bridged the gap with rock crowds by enlisting Paramore for the full 2024 European leg of The Eras Tour. See those dates below.

Kiss’ ongoing “End of the Road World Tour” is scheduled to wrap up at the end of this year. Announced way back in 2018, at one point scheduled to finish up in 2021
