KISS Pitched Reality Competition Show To Find New Members

KISS is currently in the middle of their farewell tour – but at one point, the band wanted to find new members through a reality TV show.


Gene Simmons says he had conversations with legendary TV producer Mark Burnett about a reality competition show called KISS: The Next Generation – where young people would compete to take over as future band members.


While the show never happened, Simmons still likes the idea of KISS living on past the original lineup: “I have no problems with four deserving 20-year-olds sticking the makeup back on and hiding their identity”.
