Kiss front man Gene Simmons sets a wedding date with his fiancÃ© Shannon Tweed to walk down the aisle after spending almost three decades together.
The couple will tie the knot on October 1st at an “iconic Beverly Hills hotel,” according to Entertainment Tonight. The 62-year-old rock star and the 54-year-old former Playboy Playmate met in 1984 and began living together the following year. Gene and Shannon have two children together – a son, Nick, 22, and a 19-year-old daughter, Sophie.
The entire family stars in the A&E reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.” The season finale of the last season ended with a proposal and a new season will begin with the lead up for the October 1 nuptials. The season premiere will air on October 4 on A&E.
Simmons and Tweed had several high-profile relationships before they met almost 30 years ago. Gene had previously lived and had long term relationships with both Cher and Diana Ross. Shannon, who was Playmate Of The Year in 1982, had a brief relationship with Hugh Hefner.
