Kiss will eventually wind down their End Of The Road tour and play their final-ever show in New York City. Kiss manager Doc McGhee believes that founding members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss should be a part of the final show, though he's not sure that'll happen.
McGhee said in an interview with VWMusic that Kiss has been in contact with Frehley, but hasn't spoken to Criss in a long time. McGhee added that he hopes both can join the band for the final show considering they helped found the band in 1973, but mentioned that "you're not going to get six guys up there in makeup. That's not going to happen."
"Honestly, I don't know. You can invite them, but they may not come. They may come, they may not come, and we might not invite them. We've talked to them, and we've talked about it. Well, we don't talk to Peter, but we do talk to Ace. We haven't talked to Peter in a long time. But you know something? They were part of it, they aided in starting this band, and they should be part of the end of this. They started this, so in some way they should be able to share that spotlight on the way out. Now, regardless of if it happens or not, you're not going to get six guys up there in makeup. That's not going to happen."
Kiss frontman Gene Simmons has previously extended an invite to Frehley to join the band for encores, while Frehley said in a 2019 interview that he would be down to play with Kiss again for the right price.
"It would be nice to go back out again with them. But it's not my call. I think we have a really good relationship now. I text Paul back and forth and we've worked together, as I have with Gene. I would seriously consider it, but the money would have to be right. I'm not gonna take Tommy Thayer's salary. It would certainly sell more tickets with me involved. I have a gut feeling it will happen."
