Inside The Vault, there's 150 never-before-released tracks written and performed by Simmons, packaged in a massive 12" x 12" x 6" leather-bound commemorative book containing dozens of never-before-seen images of Simmons throughout his 50-year career.

In addition to the private meeting, fans will receive a Vault Pre-Pack* and join a small group of other fans for "Songs and Stories" from The Vault and a Q&A with Simmons.

"Any artist can release a boxed set, and never really thank the fans for their support," said Simmons. "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. Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience gives fans something truly unique that they can keep forever, and it gives me a chance to personally thank them for all of their support over the years."
