In a new interview with Associated Press, KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley reveals that the band's End Of The Road tour could include former members of the band performing onstage. He did not single out anyone by name, but living ex-members include guitarists Ace Frehley, Vinnie Vincent and Bruce Kulick, and drummer Peter Criss.
"I wouldn't discount any possibilities," said Stanley. "I learned long ago to never say never. Would I negate the possibility of former members making appearances? Absolutely not. I don't know in what capacity."
The band's current lineup is already rehearsing for the farewell tour, even as its elements remain undecided. Stanley said the setlist will be expanded from the recent 16 songs to 25, adding the band has "thrown away every piece of hardware that we used on any of the previous tours and created a completely new show."
With details for the End Of The Road tour coming soon, the band recently launched a new line of merch, that comes with pre-sale access to the tour.
Says the band: "Don’t miss this opportunity to secure Presale Access to tickets before the General Public. Purchase any of these new End Of The Road merch items and receive a one-time use code, eligible for up to (4) tickets."
