Legendary rocker Gene Simmons, frontman and co-founder of KISS, will be hosting an “intimate and candid” conversation in three Ontario cities this November.

Simmons will visit the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Nov. 9 for An Intimate Conversation with Gene Simmons!, described as an opportunity for audience members to sit down with the rocker in an “interactive” question and answer period.

Simmons’ career in music spans 45 years, and he recently wrapped up End of the Road, which was billed as his final world tour with KISS. Simmons, 69, rose to fame in the 1970s as a “blood-spitting, fire-breathing, bass-playing demon” with the band.

According to a press release, Simmons plans to share his life stories in a “tell-all moderated discussion” on how he approached his band as a business, taking “massive” risks and approaching new opportunities.
