Peter Criss charging $760 for one-off dinner and show event

KISS fans are paying $760 for a dinner and show performance by the band’s former drummer Peter Criss.

Criss, 71, is retiring from live performances and touring and the event — in Melbourne on May 12 — is being promoted as his farewell to Australia.

Promoter Peter Hoffman of Shout Out Loud Events said Criss will perform around 14 songs, including some from his back catalogue never played live.

Diehard fans will get a three course meal at the five star Sofitel Hotel, plus drinks.

The event is limited to 500 people and will run for four hours.

Criss is doing two dinner and show events before retiring — the other being in New York.

“It’s expensive, but it’s expensive to bring him out with the Australian dollar and the exchange rate at the moment,” Hoffman said.

“You’re getting a performance he hasn’t done before. (KISS’) Ace Frehley did a fan event that cost $750 and you got to meet him for 10 seconds. Gene (Simmons) and Paul (Stanley) charged around $1500 and you wouldn’t have got more than a few seconds with them.

“It’s the way Peter wanted to say goodbye. We could have done Festival Hall but he wanted to have an intimate goodbye to his fans.”
