Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley Play Together for First Time in 16 Years

For the first time in over 16 years, founding Kiss members Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley performed together onstage in St. Paul, Minnesota. The concert was a Hurricane Harvey benefit for The Children Matter, an initiative Simmons co-founded with in collaboration with the nonprofit, Matter, Blabbermouth reports.

“Before you were born, 1973, in New York City, this guy and I — and two other guys — put together a band we’d never seen onstage,” Simmons said while introducing his former bandmate. “Let’s hear it for Ace Frehley! He still looks great, goddamn it — doesn’t he?”

Frehley told StarTribune that he approached Simmons about being a part of the St. Paul concert.

“I just did four shows on the East Coast, and I looked at my calendar and I noticed I was off today,” Frehley said.”I had to head back to San Diego eventually where I live, so I figured I could make a pit stop here. I called Gene, and he was really excited about me being involved, and it’s that simple.” Via Rolling Stone
