what's happening with Taylor Swift

KISS’ Paul Stanley Is Now Officially A Swiftie

It seems the music world’s boundaries continue to blur as rock legend Paul Stanley of KISS unabashedly joins the ranks of Taylor Swift fans. The KISS frontman, along with his family, attended one of the electrifying performances of Taylor Swift‘s The Eras Tour in Los Angeles over the weekend, and his admiration for the pop superstar couldn’t be clearer.

Stanley’s endorsement of Swift was visible as he proudly donned a Taylor Swift T-shirt in a photo shared with fans. This unexpected crossover comes as Swift’s trailblazing The Eras Tour takes the music industry by storm, raking in approximately $14 million in ticket sales each night, as reported by The New York Times.

On August 4th, Paul Stanley took his family to witness the magic of Taylor Swift live at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. In a tweet on August 5th, he expressed his sheer awe, writing, “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.”

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s reach extends beyond her core pop audience. In an exciting move, she’s enlisted the talents of pop-rockers Paramore to accompany her on the full European leg of the 2024 Eras Tour. This collaboration bridges the gap between different music genres and showcases Swift’s eagerness to engage diverse audiences.

As fans of KISS await the conclusion of the band’s End of the Road World Tour later this year, it’s clear that the lines between musical genres continue to blur, proving that great music knows no boundaries.
