Ace Frehley says he wants in on the Kiss farewell tour and that the band “can’t do a final tour without me”.
Frehley was talking to Loudwire. He admits he was once a screw-up but he is now the Ace they always wanted. “I told Paul and Gene, ‘I’m the guy now that you’ve always wanted me to be.’ I was a screwup and I was always late and didn’t show up on time and missed recording sessions. I was telling them this year, ‘I’m now the guy you always wanted me to be.’ Hopefully it sinks in, you know?”
Ace’s feedback is that some fans won’t go if he isn’t there. “A lot of fans are saying if I’m not involved in the next tour, they’re not going. That’s probably making Paul and Gene a little nervous … I can’t imagine them doing an ‘End of the Road’ tour with the same lineup. They’ve been playing for 15 years, there’s nothing special about doing one last big tour with the same lineup.”
