Set List: Peter Criss Plays His Final U.S. Show

by VVN Music

Ex-KISS drummer Peter Criss said back in March that he would be playing one final tour which would end on June 17 in New York at The Cutting Room and, so far, he's kept that promise.

Criss, who is 71, has been touring around the world the last few months and played a farewell show in Melbourne last month. While nothing is booked, he's left the door open to farewell sets in other areas of the world where he and KISS have been popular.

Peter expanded his show by two songs over the Melbourne show, playing thirteen songs including seven from the KISS songbook and four from the Peter Criss album which was released on the same day in 1978 as the solo albums for the other three KISS members.

Criss also had a chance to show off his drumming chops on a cover of Gene Krupa's Sing, Sing, Sing.
