The drummer will appear at the Kiss Konvention Australia in May (17) and the New York Kiss Expo a month later before hanging up his sticks.

Criss is scheduled to deliver his "final live performance in the U.S.A." at a VIP dinner show on 16 June (17).

The rocker is still working on a new solo album, which he first teased in 2014 and revealed, "I don’t want to rush it".

Criss, known as The Catman, walked away from Kiss in 1980, two years after he was involved in a serious car accident.
