this has got to be the stupidest rumor
Gene would never miss a show
Gene was just on a show on CBC where he talked about the upcoming show here. The official KISS website had notes on there from Gene talking about the upcoming show.
Gene will be here.
You knew these rumors would start as they show date came near. That's all I heard this weekend is how this person or that person heard this reason or that reason why KISS isn't coming up.
People just need to relax and quit putting all their negativity into things.
I think a lot of people get mixed up by the revolving door that has been KISS members since 1980.
Peter Criss (drummer) is not with the band. Eric Singer is now the band's drummer (he is also Alice Cooper's drummer, so he'll be here twice in three weeks). Ace Frehely (lead guitar)is not with the band. Tommy Thayer has taken his place.
As legendary as the original four were, I can tell you without reservation they are a stronger lineup today. Ace and Peter just have too many issues with the rock star lifestyle, and became a drag on the band more than anything positive.
Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are with the band. And for all intents and purposes, they were always the two biggest presences on stage during any era of KISS.
KISS will be here, just hope for good weather.
From the official KISS site:

"KISS comments on upcoming summer shows:
KISS - it's bigger than all of us. It's bigger than me. It's bigger than you. It does what it wants. It has a life of its own. It defies gravity, critics and the Gods. Paul, Tommy, Eric and yours truly will show up this Summer - Ready to Rock! - Gene Simmons
It's exciting that KISS is gearing up for a few shows this summer. I'm very much looking forward to seeing all of our friends out there, and rockin' and rollin' in the summer heat. See ya on the road! - Tommy Thayer
The BIG Silver & Black machine (also known as KISS) will roll once again this summer! Looking forward to putting on the warpaint and rockin' your world! - Eric Singer

I just heard about the Alice Cooper show .. not gonna miss that either.
Eric Singer is the hardest working drummer on the road .. he is on tour with Alice Cooper in July .. and will leave the tour for Brent Fritz to finish so he can return to KISS for the few shows then back with ALice cooper for more shows.
Can't wait to see him bash the skins

I'll second that! Seen him when he opened that bar up across the river years ago. Don't remember what it was called now. Didn't like him then either, husband did.
