In Late 1972, Ace Frehley with help from friend Chris Cassone, responded to an advertisement for a lead guitarist in the band The Village Voice. Shortly after being given the job, and dealing with obvious shortcomings, the band became known as Kiss in January 1973 and released their debut album in February 1974. While he co-wrote various songs during the early days of Kiss, Frehley didn’t record any vocals for the band until “Shock Me”, a song on the 1977 album Love Gun. Frehley’s time with Kiss came to an end in November 1982, last appearing in “I Love it Loud”, a series of promotional events in Europe.
The concert includes classic rock hits from the original KISS guitarist and R&R Hall of Fame inductee. The success of Ace Frehley’s solo career, as both a recording artist and performer, has easily outpaced his KISS band mates. 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 latest album, Origins II, was released in 2020 and featured guests Robin Zander (Cheap Trick) and Lita Ford. Ace is best known for his solo hit "New York Groove" and "Into The Night."
