Vinnie made this rare public appearance, his first in almost 25 years, and a video of it is streaming below. Vinnie both conducted an interview while there, as well as performed with former Vinnie Vincent Invasion vocalist Robert Fleischman.
Fan-filmed video of this is also available below.
Vinnie was a member of KISS from 1982, until mid-1984. This was during the band’s transition out of their 1973–1983 makeup period. He was the last member to wear a unique makeup / costume configuration, known as the character of the Ankh Warrior. He and the band were first shown without the makeup during an interview on MTV in September 1983.
