Ace Frehley was part of Kiss from 1973 to 1982; he then rejoined the band in 1996, and played with them up until 2002. Frehley was part of the original Kiss line up, so having him rejoin the band for this major tour would be a huge deal for Kiss fans.
In the past, Frehley has shared that he would be open to playing in the band again. Do you hope Frehley takes Simmons’ offer?
