Ace & Peter "Bad Boys 2022" Tour...

Post by Doose »

Imagine Ace and Peter decided to actually rehearse and go on tour together in 2022. How big of venues could they realistically fill?

Can you imagine these two trying to rehearse, get a proper manager, get a proper road manager, do publicity, etc.?

I would assume they would be stuck in the same size places Ace plays so it doesn't make sense for Ace to do it.I would love to see that double bill. Maybe if they added another act(Bach?) they could get out of the bars and into a small theater.

What’s the point of this? Peter’s retired, he’ll be 76 years old next year. He doesn’t need to “try to rehearse, get a manager, do publicity”. Ace has everything in place to do his tours.

I really can’t imagine it. It would never happen. Maybe 200-400 people in the big markets. Peter is done and Ace doesn’t draw much either.

Charlie Watts is in his eighties and he still tours. Mick and Keith are close to eighty and they still tour. Eric Clapton, Paul MCCartney, Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr, Pete Townsend, and Roger Daltrey still tour.

If Ace was inviting Peter along and there was enough money to satisfy Peter, then I could see it happening. Will it happen? I seriously doubt it. However, it is a show that I certainly would not miss!

It would be great if Peter got an acoustic guitarist, and did "town hall" type shows on his own where he simply sang songs and told stories. He can easily get a nice crowd in 4-5-6 big cities.

It'd be less like their '95 run as the "Bad Boys" and more like Ace's recent tours, with Peter added almost as a special guest. Peter hasn't been active in recording or touring, so I can't imagine they'd have equal time at a performance. Since both of those guys are now in their 70s, I'd hope they could pick a tour name more age-appropriate (Slightly Cranky Men 2022, perhaps).

Frankly, it'd be great in the right hands. That band that did Peter's last show was cool, but I'd like to see him playing with more seasoned musicians and dig into the soul/R&B more. Paul Schaffer would be a cool musical director (for Peter) and would probably make smart decisions (I'm ignoring his involvement in One For All). I don't think Peter needs to sing doo-wop oldies, but I also scratched my head when he did "Strutter" at his final show. There's a ton of great material that Peter could knock out of the park.

Ace was definitely on the right track before COVID hit, doing his '78 solo album in its entirety and more deep cuts live. As I said, it could be REALLY cool, but only in the right hands. Those 2 guys have enough material that they wouldn't need to do DRC or Love Gun or R&RAN. Those songs wouldn't draw more people into a Criss/Frehley show anyway, so we don't need to hear them for the millionth time, IMO.

And it would have to happen soon. They aren't spring chickens anymore.

I don't know how much he could really draw. When he did his last show in NYC in 2017, I think they had a hard time selling 100, 150 tickets in the heart of NYC.

If Ace was there, more tickets would probably be sold.

I don’t think Peter is interested in this at all. But if it was happening, hell ya I’d go.

Folks are taking low blows at them in this thread. I saw Ace twice in recent years 2018 (old band) & 2019 (new band—Gene Simmons Band). Both times he played to around 500 people.

Was it perfect? No.
Was it tons of fun? Absolutely.

I’d actually say the same thing about the 2 EOTR gigs I caught.

I never understood why Ace, Peter, Bruce (hell - try to get Vinnie too) didn't put a show together.

Seems to be the most obvious thing to do business wise when it comes to KISS fans - former KISS members doing a tour together. Like Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth touring together.

I would imagine it would be hard to figure out the split. Ace will feel he’s the biggest name and draw and he should get the biggest cut. If a show with Ace/Peter/Vinnie draws 1000 people and Ace figures he can get 800 on his own with 40 meet n greets then why would he want to do the tour with Peter and Vinnie.

I would think that Ace, Peter, Bruce and Vinnie going on tour would draw far more than just Ace on his own to justify doing it, but who knows. I guess I am surprised that it has never been tried even for a few shows just to see the response.

It would draw more, but how much more? Anyone going is likely a Kiss fan. Vinnie on his own right now would draw fly’s. He’s not bringing in much at all. Bruce? He’s not a name on his own. Peter does have some name recognition, but likely anyone who would see Peter would be seeing Ace anyways. It’s the same crowd.

I don't mean so much today - but when current KISS first became a thing to now. Just seems like a missed opportunity.

Aren't 200 people+ going to these Vinnie shows in the last couple of years. I imagine if he wasn't charging so much, more people would go. :D

It was also priced much more than an ordinary show, including dinner, etc, about 250 dollars per seat in a dinner theater type environment and he made the point to personally meet and greet everyone. It was meant to be a more exclusive event and I know some people could just not go at that price. If he played shows at more regular club prices he could maybe draw a few hundred and be comparable to Ace in terms of attendance. But he is retired anyway and that show was a great way to go out.

To be fair, tickets for that show were $275 and that was for people having absolutely no idea what to expect from a guy who hasn't played live in a very long time. Plus, I think you had to buy dinner and drinks as well (I could be mistaken though). I was one who thought the show would not be good, but seeing the footage turned out to be fantastic.

If Peter today played the biggest cities advertising an acoustic night of songs and stories, with relatively little expense (two guys and a guitar mainly), and charged even just a $50=$75 ticket (a bit more for the M&G of course)I believe it would do nicely.

If Ace plays his entire 1978 solo album they would be playing stadiums. Ace's "good friends" Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards would have the Stones open for them. It would be the most celebrated tour in history.

It was completely sold out Doose.. no hard time at all selling out the show in the heart of NYC. The ticket included full meal , show and after the show Peter met us and took pictures. It was an awesome show and I'm glad I made the trip in to see it live. If Ace and Peter did
anything together at this point I think there would be a huge draw . After all they are Kiss too. One can wish .. doubt it will happen.

I think this is exactly the type of event/format that would work for them, and I think it would do well. Unfortunately, I think they're too lazy to do it, and they're not surrounded by people capable of doing it.

With the proper marketing (and a bit of guerilla marketing including the Kiss logo and Ace and Peter in makeup) they could draw at least 500 people somewhere.

I would imagine it would be hard to figure out the split. Ace will feel he’s the biggest name and draw and he should get the biggest cut. If a show with Ace/Peter/Vinnie draws 1000 people and Ace figures he can get 800 on his own with 40 meet n greets then why would he want to do the tour with Peter and Vinnie.
I would think that Ace, Peter, Bruce and Vinnie going on tour would draw far more than just Ace on his own to justify doing it, but who knows. I guess I am surprised that it has never been tried even for a few shows just to see the response.
It would draw more, but how much more? Anyone going is likely a Kiss fan. Vinnie on his own right now would draw fly’s. He’s not bringing in much at all. Bruce? He’s not a name on his own. Peter does have some name recognition, but likely anyone who would see Peter would be seeing Ace anyways. It’s the same crowd.
I don't mean so much today - but when current KISS first became a thing to now. Just seems like a missed opportunity.

Aren't 200 people+ going to these Vinnie shows in the last couple of years. I imagine if he wasn't charging so much, more people would go. :D
I think Vinnie is a great guitarist and songwriter. I live right here in Nashville where he will put on a couple of shows. I am sure the shows will be good. However, there is no way that I will spend Vinnie prices for tickets.

I feel the same way about Ace. There is no way I would pay Vinnie prices to see him.

I'm sure Ace and Peter have a ton of their own memorabilia and could do a KISS Konvention-style tour. Charge $100 per ticket, and then charge extra for autographs and photos.

Not really, they're old and aren't well known outside of diehard KISS fans.

Not their faults but when asked about a Tour with these two virtually unknown musicians it's fair baseball to say it wouldn't draw much of an attendance.

I agree that the attendance would not be large but "virtually unknown" musicians - That is utterly ridiculous. You obviously were not around in the 70's.

I saw the 1994 Bad Boys Tour. They played to about 300 people in San Diego. Sold out! (Tiny club.)

I'll rephrase, people might know of them ( or have heard of them ) but enough to care about in 2021 ?

I don't think so.

I honestly think it would do pretty decent. I like the idea of short sets individually and then playing a short set together as someone suggested earlier.
