Mr Clark said Simmons was probably a bigger businessman than rock star — an entrepreneur and a mentor.

In Zambia, Simmons became an ambassador for Mr Clark’s charity Health Hope Zambia after seeing its work reducing deaths from malnutrition.

When Kiss come Down Under in October, Simmons will be at Mr Clark’s disposal to promote the charity and will be a guest at an event on October 4, the day after Kiss kick off their Australian tour at Perth Arena.

Up to 50 people will get backstage passes to the Kiss concert and a private performance from Simmons at the intimate event.

Mr Clark said Simmons told him he could use him every day of his 15 days in Australia to work for Health Hope Zambia.
