KISS Manager On The Band’s Final Show: “We Might Bring Out All The Former Members”

Back in November 2019, manager Doc McGhee revealed that all former members of KISS had been approached about taking part in the band’s final show in New York City on July 17, 2021. Now, during a recent interview with Pollstar, he discussed that idea once again:

“It’s going to be great. It’s going to be worthy of the end of the road. It will be worthy to the 45 years of KISS, the last month for sure. We want to celebrate everybody and we might bring out all the former members. We’d like to. Nobody says we hate this guy; we hate that guy; we want everybody who wants to come out.”
