KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons recently spoke to TMZ Live about the museum dedicated to the iconic band which is set to open in Las Vegas in March.
The museum will be a 2,000-square-foot expansion of the current attraction, ‘Kiss By Monster Mini Golf’ located at the Rio Hotel & Casino and will eventually develop into a 15,000-square-foot KISS-themed experience based within Masquerade Village.
“My personal collection is gonna be at the Rio hotel, and it’s gonna be a chance for all the fans to go up there and see close to ten thousand items — lyrics and things and guitars,” Gene said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “No band has got this. We are the juggernaut of them all in licensing and merchandising. But instead of being in one of my big houses, the fans will be able to go there, see, look, touch, take photos. And there will be video screens in the back so you’ll be able to be up on stage with KISS, if you can imagine. And by the way, it’s also in the inside of the Kiss Mini Golf where you can play golf. And you can get married at the Kiss Chapel. We have a little person wearing my makeup and it looks like this: ‘Repeat after me: I was made for loving you.’ ‘I was made for loving you.’ ‘And then you were made for loving me.’ And they get married.”
You can watch a previously published video where Gene shows off his KISS collection inside his Beverly Hills mansion below to give you an idea of what to expect at the new museum.
The KISS museum launch will coincide with the return of the band’s “End Of The Road” world tour, which commenced back in 2019.
