Ace Frehley and Gene Simmons will perform live together for the first time in 16 years for The Children Matter benefit concert in St. Paul, MN, which will benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The concert—which will take place on September 20th at CHS Field Stadium—will also feature Don Felder and Cheap Trick. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Matter, and their hurricane relief efforts for the victims of Harvey.

    I know it’s not KI$$, but to me, it’s better than the current tribute version of KI$$.

    Gene can be a douche at times, but he does a lot of generous acts, such as this benefit performance. His heart really is bigger than his wallet. Way to go, Gene!

    Great thing for Gene and Ace to do for charity (as well as everyone else who is performing)! Everyone has an opinion about Gene, but the guy does do a lot of charity work. I know that he is a big supporter of the military and their families. So, even though he has a huge ego, and seems to be obsessed with making money (nothing wrong with that), he doesn’t get enough credit for some of the good things he does. I’m glad this is getting posted here, so that people are made aware of The Demon’s softer side.

      He donates more money than most people make. He also does more foster care work for children in third world countries than Sally Struthers probably did. So he can be a douche all he wants.

      As for performing with Ace – I’d pay more money to see those two together than any current version of KISS. Grab Singer, call it Demon Space and lets get on with it already.

    will they take the stage together ??? it didn’t say that , looks like both bands of their bands will be playing , just not together ….. any clarification on this ? I would hope they play a couple of tunes together –

    This can only mean one thing….Don Felder will be replacing Tommy Thayer as the Space-Man in KISS!

  • Otis Mack on

    Fingers crossed for this hopefully leading up to Ace rejoining for KISS’ 2018-19 45th anniversary/final US arena stadium run
