Gene Simmons, legendary frontman and co-founder of KISS, one of rock's most successful and longest-running bands, announces three Ontario appearances this November. After an epic and storied 45-year career, and hot on the heels of “End of the Road,” his final world tour with KISS, Gene Simmons sits down with Canadian audiences for an intimate and candid conversation. Simmons who rose to fame in the '70s as the blood-spitting, fire-breathing, bass-playing Demon will share his life stories in this tell-all moderated discussion on how he approached his band as a business, stepping up to new opportunities and taking massive risks. The entrepreneur, author, television personality and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer, who with KISS sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, will unleash his acumen and lay out his secrets on what it takes to climb the ranks to join the wealthy and powerful in his unstoppable and unapologetic style.  Audience members will be invited to take part in the conversation through an interactive Question & Answer period that promises to generate an interesting discussion.

Gene Simmons is a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur and one of the world's most recognized personalities. Born in Haifa, Israel in 1949 named Chaim Witz, when Gene was just eight years old, his mother decided to move to the United States. They settled in New York City, and she felt that he needed to have a name that sounded more American, so she changed his name to Eugene Klein. He would not know wealth until after he became a well-known musician and performer with KISS the hard rock band that rose to unbelievable heights of fame. Simmons co-founded KISS, America’s #1 Gold Record Award Winning Group of all time, in all categories (RIAA). KISS also boasted over 3,000 licensed/merchandise items and in 2014 was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  Simmons film and television accolades include the film titled “Detroit Rock City.” Simmons went on to create a reality television show, where he starred alongside his wife, daughter, and son in the series “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.”   With a fortune at his disposal, he could do anything that he wants. He chooses to travel and to share his wisdom with others.
