Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley rejoined his former bandmates on Wednesday during this year’s Kiss Kruise to perform an acoustic set of KISS classics. Also appearing with them was former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, reports

KISS — Paul Stanley (vocals, guitar), Gene Simmons (bass, vocals), Tommy Thayer (guitar) and Eric Singer (drums) — are playing multiple shows during the eighth installment of their seagoing extravaganza, which embarked yesterday from Miami and will visit Key West, Florida, and Nassau in the Bahamas before returning to port on November 5th.

Frehley, whose solo band is one of the artists performing on the cruise, took the stage during KISS’s acoustic show on Wednesday and played four songs with the current KISS lineup: 2000 Man, New York Groove, Nothing’ To Lose and Rock And Roll All Nite. Kulick, who is also one of the cruise’s scheduled performers, joined in on acoustic guitar. Watch fan filmed video below.

KISS recently announced North American Tour Dates for their End Of The Road tour. The band also performed one of their classic songs, Love Gun on the October 30th episode of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Ace Frehley’s latest solo album, Spaceman, on October 19th through Entertainment One (eOne).

    Hopefully Peter can comeback like Steven Adler and do a couple of classic like Ace & Bruce just did.

    Never seen them before, maybe I should this run.

    Here are 10 things I demand from KISS on their End of the Road tour:
    1- All the ex-members must be on the tour, especially Peter and Vinnie (especially because Paul doesn’t like them).
    2- The setlist should be determined by the audience before each show.
    3- They should change costumes and stage sets throughout the show so that the song they’re playing matches the album from which the song came.
    4- Each concert should be 12-14 hours long…at least.
    5- There should be a segment in the show when Tommy and Bruce are asked to be ridiculed by the entire audience, and Ace and Peter should beat them up onstage.
    6- A hologram tribute must be given to Eric Carr, Mark St. John, Bill Aucoin, Neil Bogart, and Sean Delaney.
    7- Every night, Paul Stanley should apologize onstage to Eddie Trunk, and then be interviewed by him.
    8- At the end of every show, the band should run to the exit and personally thank each fan and take selfies and sign KISS tchatchkis as they make their way out the arena.
    9- They should serve free all-you-can-eat-and-drink beer and burgers (vegan options, also!), courtesy of Rock & Brews.
    10- Each member should call every fan to make sure they got home safely.

      I don’t think hoping for past members to participate on the final tour, a tribute (nobody mentioned anything about holograms) to members of the KISS family who have passed, and maybe a deep cut or two is too much to hope for, nobody is demanding anything, except for you, RTunes68. Your list is ridiculous! I’m surprised you didn’t demand free tickets on your list as well! While you’re at it, why don’t you demand to be picked up by a limo, and brought back home by a limo too? Maybe by KISS themselves, yeah, there you go!

    I’ve got a buddy on the the Cruise. It’s his first time and he’s over the moon. He’s met Paul and got a guitar signed by him, and also got his art print which is Paul’s touch ups on his solo album pic.

    The interesting part is he says Bruce’s solo band is stealing the show currently. He sent me a few vids and Bruce’s band is tight and the two guys singing are out performing the legends. But age is on their side. Bruce is doing alot of stuff KISS wouldn’t like Thou Shalt Not and one of my personal favorites King of the Mountain. Brent Fitz is on drums I believe and he can hold his own with anybody.

    Paul has said there will be a KK9

    Ouch, tickets not selling very quickly. Chicago and NYC have done well, but there are thousands of unsold seats in other market venues. Even LA is not even half sold at the Forum where Bob Seger will be performing two weeks later to a sold out show. The Omaha, NE, Anaheim, CA and Moline IL venues are not even 1/4 sold. Won’t be surprised if these shows get canceled.
