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.

And Ace is on a roll. He’s ready to embark on his next musical journey with Spaceman, his third solo outing in four years. Of all Ace’s post-KISS recorded output, Spaceman might be the closest link to his widely acclaimed 1978 solo record, both in spirit and execution. First off, Frehley played all of the guitar parts on Spaceman , as well as bass on all but two songs. Longtime drummer Anton Fig, whose friendship with Ace began in that 1978 record, also appears on “Off My Back” and “Pursuit of Rock and Roll” (longtime collaborators Scot Coogan and Matt Starr also play drums on Spaceman ).

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!”

    This is something my dad and i could go to together he is a a huge Ace fan he’s made me listen to Ace Frehley since i was young. This would be a great bonding moment for us. It would surprise the crap out of him.

  3. Michael on April 13, 2022 at 3:06 pm

    Ace Frehley was my music hero as a kid. I saw Kiss perform the song “Firehouse” on The Mike Douglas show when I was 10 and that is what got me into music and eventually going to concerts. I would love to see this legend in concert and relive my youth and take my nephew.

  4. Carol Trekas on April 14, 2022 at 9:51 am

    I really need a evening out. Stress level very high. My husband tried to commit the big S. Thanks for listening.

  5. Shawna Eaton on April 14, 2022 at 10:32 am

    I would love to treat my disabled husband to a show of one of his favorite guitarists.

  6. Shaun P. on April 14, 2022 at 2:08 pm

    Space Ace! I’m a Huge fan, but my dad is a HHUUUGGEEEE fan. Honestly I want to take him to see his hero.

  7. Wynand Van Emmerik on April 14, 2022 at 2:17 pm

  9. T.R. on April 14, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    I would love to see Ace do his smoking guitar trick and jam those old Kiss classics. The Aladdin Theater is such great venue for this.

  10. Daniel Morgan on April 14, 2022 at 3:46 pm

    Ace is the most amazing guitar player ever!!!!! I’ve followed him since his KISS days and still believe he will never be out done! My wife and I are huge fans. Good on ya Alladin Theater for brining this power house to your great venue

  14. Dave G. on April 16, 2022 at 10:37 am

    I plead my case to see Ace melt my face at this place !

  15. David on April 18, 2022 at 11:48 am

    Ace is one of the most influential guitar players of all time, and is still killing it live! This will be amazing night of some of the greatest riffs EVER played live, all going down at the Aladdin! Thanks for the chance, PDX Pipeline!

  16. Stacy M Jorge on April 19, 2022 at 2:20 am

    My daughter’s father is a huge Kiss fan. Ace Frehley is so good. This would be a great Father’s Day gift for him.

  17. James on April 19, 2022 at 1:16 pm

    Great guitarist. Always puts on a great show.

  18. Tom Havey on April 19, 2022 at 1:20 pm

    Ace has a face from outer space
    The star man with a white face
    hold lightning in his guitar case
    will unleash it at the best showplace
    The Aladdin rocks like no other place
    and I need to change my headspace

  19. Jeff Elsasser on April 19, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    I was heavily influenced by Ace at the age of 16 in 1976. I’m a guitar player, a huge fan and own an Ace Frehley Les Paul I’d love to have signed!

  20. Lizz on April 20, 2022 at 9:53 am

    Ace’s music literally kept me sane for the past ~3 or so miserable years that just keep getting worse and worse and worse… So if I got tickets to this show by way of having good luck, my guess is that I will internalize that positive correlation in ways that will make it feel like a sign that stuff could turn out after being impressed at the novelty of winning anything right now too. And you can give these tickets out to anyone but are they all openly admitting to maybe needing to see some live music by the dude who literally is the one I play anyway to remind myself I can manage this next terrible thing too? No. But I am. Because that is how much I really want to be selected.

  21. Karl Michael Jacobson on April 20, 2022 at 12:02 pm

    Yes!!! Please and thank-you.

  22. Mike S. on April 20, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    I only get one day off each week and it is Thursday. The Ace Frehley concert just happens to be on a Thursday. I would really appreciate these tickets as it would be the rare chance to take my wife out to a concert and we both just so happen to love the music of Kiss. Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  23. Brandy Border-Rodriguez on April 20, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    It’s the guitarist for Kiss! Need more be said?! Lol rock n roll 4eva baby!

  24. Amber on April 21, 2022 at 2:19 pm

    My mom took me to see KISS when I was 4 in 1979 (😳yeah parent of the year award!) I only remember being terrified, but from that moment on I’ve been a fan. I even have all my Mom’s old vinyl. 🤘

  25. Hayley W on April 21, 2022 at 3:35 pm

    Me(27) and my boyfriend(30) went and saw KISS last year in Ridgefield Washington and we originally bought general admission grass seats and so we get there, get a beer and were sitting in the grass waiting for the concert to start and a worker asked if we wanted are tickets upgraded to up in the 6th row in the front section!!! We were stoked! I grew up listening to KISS with my parents and seeing them get to go to a couple concerts of theirs and how much fun it was so it was so cool to get to experience them live too!!

    I FELL IN LOVE WITH ACE! His accent is the amazing and he has the best attitude, so nice, and so much charisma!! Would love to see him again!!

  26. CHRIS on April 21, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    Pick Me Please – I love KISS music

  27. Katie on April 21, 2022 at 5:43 pm

    I love Kiss and I love Ace. Also free Tix are pretty cool!

  28. M.S. on April 21, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    I love seeing concerts at The Aladdin Theater and seeing a Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame Guitarist there would make my day. I would take my friend and go to The Lamp before the show for food and drinks.

  29. Dawn on April 22, 2022 at 11:25 am

    It would be great to see ace at the Aladdin!

  30. Brig on April 25, 2022 at 3:36 pm
