Ace Frehley And Peter Criss Turn Down Offer To Join Kiss For Farewell Shows

Former Kiss members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss have been offered the opportunity to join the band for their performances this year, but both have declined the offer.

As Kiss prepares for their final shows on their farewell tour, fans had hoped to see a reunion of the estranged duo, even if only for a few songs. However, it seems that Criss and Frehley have decided not to participate in the band’s farewell tour.

In a new interview with Linea Rock, Kiss bassist Gene Simmons said:

“For the older fans, the ones who’ve been around for 50 years, they’re old, and some of them wanna see Ace and Peter. The newer fans never saw them and they don’t know.

“But the older fans wonder about Ace and Peter,” he continued. “Well, I asked both Ace and Peter a few times ‘Do you wanna come out for the encores? Do you wanna do some shows?’ And they both said ‘no.’ So, I don’t know what to say about that.

“But it’s always welcome,” Gene added. “But there are many other big stars, superstars, who wanna jump up onstage and play a song. But we’re not sure about that. Maybe the best thing to do is to end the way we started – four guys with guitars. No keyboards, no synthesizers, nothing. Just playing.”
