Kiss singer Gene Simmons has revealed his sensitive side.

The 60-year-old rocker is in the midst of a tour with the US rock band's current line-up.

He told Absolute Radio DJ Iain Lee: "When I see a five-year-old in Kiss make-up on his dad's shoulders at one of our concerts I will cry with happiness."

Many fans have longed for the return of the original Kiss line-up, which featured drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley.

Ace left the band for a second time in 2002 and released a solo album last month. Peter went in 2004.
