Kiss vocalist and bassist Gene Simmons has announced the release of a box set containing 150 never-before-released tracks.

They’ll be included in The Vault Experience which is being launched by Rhino Entertainment to celebrate his 50 years in rock

A statement reads: “Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience commemorates and celebrates Simmons’ notorious five-decade journey as a rock icon, offering fans around the world a limited-edition collectible vault with contents that offer a unique look into The Demon’s colourful life, including never-before-released songs, photos, stories and collectible items.”

It will cost $2000 and, after a personal SKYPE call from Simmons, the Kiss star will hand deliver each package to customers at a designated location during his Vault World Tour which will take place between January and December 2018.

Simmons says: “Any artist can release a boxed set, and never really thank the fans for their support. I want to celebrate my 50th anniversary in rock with the fans, and I have had a blast putting something really special together for them.”

In addition, Simmons is offering two other Vault packages. The Executive Producers Experience costs $25,000, while the $50,000 Home Experience includes two hours with Simmons at the fan’s home – or designated location – for a special event with up to 25 friends and family, an intimate Songs & Stories playback session and Q&A with Gene.
