Nikki Sixx Says Ace Frehley Belongs On KISS Tour


Nikki Sixx said Saturday Ace Frehley should be part of KISS’s End of the Road tour.

The Mötley Crüe bassist made the comment on Instagram after watching Frehley perform.

“Went with @john5official to see @acefrehleyofficial and his awesome band tonight,” he captioned a photo of the trio. “John jammed Cold Gin. Ace played great and looked amazing. He should be on this Last tour with KISS. He brings #RawPower #RealDeal.”

Sixx later deleted the last two sentences.

Frehley left KISS in 1982 but rejoined in 1996 until 2002. He was part of the band’s previous “farewell tour” in 2001.

KISS kicks off its farewell tour – with Tommy Thayer replacing Frehley and Eric Singer filling in for Peter Criss – on Jan. 31 in Vancouver. The band (which has repurposed Mötley Crüe’s rig for the tour) is reportedly performing a two-hour set.

KISS is also set to play Montreal and Toronto in March (and again in August) and Quebec City and Ottawa in April.
