Event Description


"I play things unorthodox and sometimes I play things that a schooled musician might say, 'Well, you’re playing that wrong,' and I go, 'There’s no right or wrong in rock and roll. You just do it. It’s all about feel and attitude.'” - Ace Frehley


Here are a few things you probably know about Ace Frehley: He’s the original lead guitarist for KISS (which he co-founded in 1973). He was also their best—his song-within-the-song guitar solos are as much a part of KISS as the band’s seven-inch platform boots. And he’s always been the coolest member of KISS—rock ’n’ roll swagger, laid-back, mysterious—just ask Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, or Naoko Yamano of Shonen Knife, or Abbath of Immortal. Hell, even people who don’t like KISS still love Ace.


What you may not know is that Ace Frehley has not been a member of KISS since 2002, when he left his second tenure with the band (there’s a “spaceman” currently playing leads for the band, but it ain’t Ace). In his time away from KISS (1983-1996, and 2002-present), Frehley has put together the most successful solo career of any member—current or former. His 2014 release Space Invader was the only post KISS solo album to crack the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, and his acclaimed 2011 autobiography 'No Regrets' went on to become a New York Times best-seller.  


Ace’s current album, Origins II, was released on September 18, 2020 and features guests Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Lita Ford, Bruce Kulick and John 5. 


The success of Ace Frehley’s solo career, as both a recording artist and performer, has easily outpaced his former KISS band mates. Along with writing and recording new material, Ace has also been tirelessly hitting the road, playing festivals, as well as dates stateside and in Australia and Japan (including dates with the mighty Alice Cooper). As always, Ace is traveling at an altitude us mere mortals will never understand—a life lived to the fullest, and one that has defied well..... everything. That said, if you ever see the Space Ace in the cosmos, there’s only one proper reaction: “Hey look, it’s rock ’n’ roll!


Join us this August for a night of classic rock hits from the original KISS guitarist and R&R Hall of Fame inductee Ace Frehley.
