Kiss Manager Doc McGhee confirmed in a Questions and Answers session on the Kiss Kruise cruise 2019 transcribed by Sleaze Roxx that all former members were contacted for the band’s last concert. The performance, which closes the second farewell tour “End Of The Road”, will take place in New York, United States, on July 17, 2021.
Kiss manager said about the ex-members on the final concert:
“Yeah, listen. We want, we want to include everybody that played with KISS to celebrate the 45 years of KISS and everybody, Vinnie Vincent and everybody else [inaudible] that have passed away that have played with KISS is part of this celebration of 45 years so we’re still looking at what we’re going to do on the final show of KISS, which will be coming at some point to you soon [scheduled for July 17, 2021 in New York City, New York, USA].”
“Yes. They’ve all been talked to about it and so I can see us doing something… It’s very difficult though when people say, “Oh, you should bring Ace and Peter up.” I mean, how do you do that when you have two Catman and two Spaceman. So you say, “OK. You don’t wear make up and you wear make up.” And then they [Ace Frehley and Peter Criss] go, “Well, that was my make up.” I don’t know.”
“So it’s real hard to do but we’ll figure it out because they’re very much a part of the heritage of KISS. They’re acknowledged by Gene [Simmons] and Paul, and everybody in this room as former members [inaudible]. It’s important to you guys. It’s important to us. It’s just a matter of the balance. We bring it where it works for everybody and everybody is having a great time.”
The band revealed more than 80 dates for their 2020 Farewell tour, they will play in the USA, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Peru, Paraguay, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, UK, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Bulgaria, South Africa.
