In news that I suspect ruined Paul Stanley’s breakfast. The KISS Army stood erect a few weeks back when it was announced that Gene and Ace had actually hung out and written a couple songs together. The level of “Is Ace coming back to KISS?” rhetoric will be even higher after it was announced today that Gene Simmons will indeed be joined by Ace Frehley at The Children Matter charity concert in St. Paul, MN on September 20th. Also appearing will be Cheap Trick and Don Felder.
Along with an ever changng lineup of bands, the nature of the charity has been changed to benefit the flood ravaged victims of Houston. All proceeds from The Children Matter benefit concert will be directed to the hurricane relief efforts of the nonprofit Matter. The nonprofit works in partnership with on-ground relief organizations to source and ship the items needed most, such as: Matterbox Meal Kits, sanitation and contamination prevention supplies and more to the children and families affected displaced by the hurricane. Tickets start at $60 for general admission with V.I.P. packages of $110 and $250. You can buy them here.
