Criss, who is 76, will appear with Australian rockers Sisters Doll during their performance at The Cutting Room in New York on May 22. The band, originally from Collie, Western Australia but now residing in Melbourne, will be in New York as part of a US tour that also takes in shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Nashville.
Sisters Doll were Peter Criss's backup band at what was billed as his final ever US show in 2017 – also at The Cutting Room – and the Kiss connections don't end there. The band also backed former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick on Australian tours in 2015 and 2017.
"After being in contact with him [Kulick] he gave us the opportunity to play with him," drummer Bryce Lipz told the Bunbury Mail in 2017. "He and Peter Criss had been talking and he had copped wind that we were good musicians so that’s how we got the opportunity to play with him. It was so surreal.”
Sisters Doll will warm up for their US tour with a show at the Workers Club in Fitzroy, Victoria, this Friday. "What better way to celebrate the band along with their legion of fans known as the Doll Army for one huge rock'n'roll party at the legendary Workers Club in Fitzroy," proclaim the band.
