Gene Simmons of Kiss played a solo show with former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick and current drummer Eric Singer on Saturday in Las Vegas as part of a weekend-long VIP event. The Demon hosted “An Evening With Gene Simmons” at the Rio Hotel and Casino, where the Kiss World museum and Kiss by Monster Mini Golf course are located. Priced at a hefty $4,955, the weekend extravaganza included dinner with Simmons at the hotel’s top-floor Voodoo Steakhouse, handpicked items from the rocker’s personal collection, and an intimate performance from the Gene Simmons Band.

Kulick, who played with Kiss from 1984-96, posted about the event on his Facebook page and revealed that singer/bassist Todd Kerns and drummer Brent Fitz, who both play in Kulick and Slash’s solo bands, and guitarist Brent Woods, who plays with Sebastian Bach, also took part in the performance. “Gene Simmons invited Todd Kerns, Eric Singer, Brent Woods, Brent Fitz and I to perform with him today at his event,” Kulick wrote. “The mentalist Gerry McCambridge opened the show. It was KISSTORY, and the fans loved it! What a show!!”

Kiss is currently on their End of the Road farewell tour, which is set to finally end with two back-to-back hometown shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Dec. 1 and 2. The band is not scheduled to play in Las Vegas on the final North American leg, and they haven’t been back to Sin City since canceling their Planet Hollywood residency in late 2021.

Simmons, however, seems to still be thinking about the residency. When asked if Kiss would play Vegas again, he told the Las Vegas Review Journal, “I actually don’t know because we have been so inundated by people wanting to see us wherever we go. I mean, every guy who ever washed my dog or did my dry cleaning is hitting me up for tickets for his entire family, three generations back. Vegas? I don’t know, it would be nice to do a Vegas residency. But I don’t know any of these things.”

Simmons, Kulick, and Singer have been part of Kiss for a long time and have contributed to the band’s iconic music. Fans who attended the event were thrilled to see the three musicians perform together again. Simmons continues to be an influential figure in the music industry, and he is one of the most recognizable faces in rock and roll history. The VIP event may have been pricey, but for die-hard Kiss fans, it was likely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
