The Gene Simmons Band will hit the stage Friday, April 26 in São Paulo, Brazil
Gene Simmons is ready to rock once again.
Simmons will be performing with his solo group — the Gene Simmons Band — at the Summer Breeze festival at Memorial da América Latina in São Paulo, Brazil. The "Heaven's on Fire" artist's project is set to headline the first day of the three-day event on April 26.
Also slated to play the festival are acts like Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Sebastian Bach and Lacuna Coil.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the Gene Simmons Band's lineup will include guitarists Brent Woods (Sebastian Bach, Vince Neil) and Zach Throne (Corey Taylor), along with drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Foreigner). The group last performed in 2018.
News of Simmons' upcoming gig comes just over a month since the band held their final show at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
“My hand on the Bible,” he told the outlet. "And I should know because my people wrote that book. In fact, my people also wrote the follow-up book, the New Testament. And so I’ll say right here, right now, my hand on the Bible, it will be the final Kiss-in-makeup appearance.”
Simmons also opened up about the emotional impact of the tour coming to an end.

"When I was a kid going to school, my nickname was Mr. Spock. I’ve never been much for emotion and stuff like that. I remember my Uncle George, who I loved dearly. I remember standing over his grave, and being sad, but I didn’t cry. Tears don’t come easy for me," he explained.
"But the few times they have is when I look out at the audience and I see a 50-plus-year-old fan who’s been with us ever since he was a kid, wearing Kiss makeup. And next to him is his late 20s/early 30s-year-old son wearing makeup, and sitting on the shoulder of his son is his grandson, five-year-old, six-year-old, whatever, wearing our makeup."
He added, "And that little kid putting up my hand gesture, with the two horns and the thumb out, which actually in sign language means 'I love you,' and sticking his tongue out for the first time. Well, that gets me going every time."
When asked about the possibility of a one-off show, he said: "Paul has his Soul Station band. I’m sure he’d love to play some shows. I’ve got the Gene Simmons Band. At some point, I may want to jump up onstage and do some tunes," he said, adding that he would be open to a solo tour in the future. "But the physicality of being in Kiss says that this is the right thing, at the right place, at the right time. Because B.B. King played until his late 80s. He was sitting onstage. We can’t do that. We don’t sit down."
