GENE Simmons will come to your house next January - for $62,000.

The Kiss bassist is releasing a boxset of unreleased music called The Vault which he will hand-deliver to fans around the world for $6200.

Seriously cashed-up fans can pay $62,000 to get Simmons to come to their actual house where he will spend two hours with 25 of your friends - and Australia is on his list of destinations.

Simmons will spend 2018 going around the world delivering the boxsets - which come with 150 unreleased songs, a new book and various merchandise items including an action figure and large medallion.

Australia is one of Kiss' most loyal markets - Simmons has pencilled in January 27 and 28 next year for local fans to receive their Vault purchases.

The price does not include travel to get to whichever state in Australia Simmons will be located closest to the purchaser.

The $6200 package includes five minutes with Simmons, where he will pose for a photo and sign two items, but no instruments.

There will only be 300 of the $62,000 home-delivery packages available worldwide.

Simmons will stay for 120 minutes and will sign autographs (again, no instruments) and take photos and listen to songs from The Vault as well as answering questions - but will not be in his trademark 'Demon' make-up.

Terms and conditions include "no smoking or illegal drugs at your Vault Home Experience" and that any gifts to Simmons be "nothing perishable, illegal, dangerous or communicable."

It also states that while you can ask questions about Kiss ("he's there to hang out with you and loves to tell stories") the God of Thunder will not clean your home.

"The Demon does not do housework including windows."

Simmons, and Kiss, are arguably the most merchandised band of all time, with everything from Kiss condoms to Kiss coffins available for purchase.
