KISS Honoring “Creatures Tour” On Upcoming “Kruise”

KISS plans to become Creatures again when it hits the high seas later this year.

The group has announced that Kiss Kruise VI, which departs November 4 from Miami and stops in Cozumel and Grand Cayman, will offer "a seaworthy exploration of KISS’ iconic 1982 Creatures Tour," returning to the 1982 tour that featured drummer Eric Carr and guitarist Vinnie Vincent in place of original members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. In addition to promoting that year's "Creatures of the Night" album the tour also celebrated Kiss' 10-year anniversary as a band. And it was the last tour with makeup until the 1996 reunion with Criss and Frehley.

KISS plans to announce exactly how it will commemorate the tour as well as special guests for the cruise in the near future. Updates will be available at
