Ace Frehley Claims KISS Can’t Do Farewell Tour Without Him: Loudwire
Ace Frehley says that KISS cannot possibly do a proper farewell tour without him. Kiss will begin ‘The End of the Road’ tour in 2019 and remain on road for three years. Frehley hasn’t been a member of KISS since 2002, but now he says about his bandmates: “They’re testing the waters. It’s all about money with those guys and they’ll be the first to admit it, especially Gene. When (they) get a call that says, ‘We’ll give you double the money with Ace and Peter (Criss),’ (on board), we’re gonna get the call.”
He adds, “I was a screwup… but I was telling Paul and Gene this year, ‘I’m now the guy you always wanted me to be.’ Hopefully it sinks in.”
Kiss will be at the Wells Fargo Center on March 9th, 2019.
