Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has confirmed to Yahoo Entertainment that he hasn’t been invited to participate within the band’s just-announced “One Last Kiss: End Of The Road World Tour”. But that does not imply he is not open to the thought, saying that “for the proper worth” he would “completely” do it.
“The first yr of that [first] reunion tour [in 1996], we grossed $215 million, and that was 20 years in the past. So what wouldn’t it be as we speak, most likely double that? Half a billion? I am there,” he laughed.
Frehley pressured, nevertheless, that he is “not chomping on the bit” to do one other reunion tour “as a result of I am having a lot enjoyable with my very own band and recording information at residence, and producing them, and writing them, and singing them… My profession has been going up and up and up.”
According to Frehley, one good motive to do it, apart from the huge payday, could be the followers.

“I do know the followers need it to occur due to the feedback on the Internet,” he mentioned. “Ninety % of them overwhelmingly are saying, ‘Bring Ace again.’ If Paul [Stanley] and Gene [Simmons] determine to place a deaf ear to the followers, I believe it will damage their careers. But, you understand, these guys all the time have completed what they’ve felt like doing, even when it was not essentially the very best transfer.”
Frehley — whose new solo album, “Spaceman”, will probably be launched on October 19 through eOne — first left KISS in 1982. He rejoined in 1996 and parted methods with the band as soon as once more in 2002 after the conclusion of their first “farewell tour.”
In a current interview with Rolling Stone, Stanley did not rule out the opportunity of visitor appearances by former members on KISS‘s ultimate tour, however did not promise something, both. “I actually cannot say,” Stanley mentioned. “This will probably be a celebration of KISS and never any particular person lineup or any particular person members. I would not rule something out, however it’s not the crux of what we’re doing… and I am not being coy both. I do not wish to mislead anyone. Really, that is not one thing that is been given a variety of thought at this level. The majority of our time has gone into what’s the stage going to be, what’s the present going to be, and we’re truly within the midst of toying with setlists now.”
