Gene Simmons of Gene Simmons Toyota and the band KISS is packing his Axe bass and coming to Halifax.
“We’ll do a handful of shows to keep in the game (next) summer, maybe 10 (dates), some Canadian shows. I know Halifax is one, but before you get out there and start the baseball season, they hold exhibition games, that’s what we’re doing. ’Cause once we go out, it’s going to be for a year and a half,” Simmons said.
Simmons has recently set out to revitalize the Canadian music industry with his label Simmons Records.
“We’re going to provide the kind of caring record company the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Motown, where the head knucklehead — that’s going to be me — is involved in every facet of your life,” he said.
I’m going to burn him a CD of Halifax bands he should consider for his label. Any suggestions? Who is the Gene Simmons of Halifax?
