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!”
I’d love to Rock & Roll with Space Ace!!!
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.
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.
I really need a evening out. Stress level very high. My husband tried to commit the big S. Thanks for listening.
I would love to treat my disabled husband to a show of one of his favorite guitarists.
Space Ace! I’m a Huge fan, but my dad is a HHUUUGGEEEE fan. Honestly I want to take him to see his hero.
would love to see Ace back in the groove
I would really like to go to this show ! KISS is awesome
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.
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
All those years of air guitaring as Space Ace.
…I’d love to see the real deal!
Ace is the space
I would love to see the spaceman and get into the New York Groove for the night 🎸🎼
I plead my case to see Ace melt my face at this place !
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!
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.
Great guitarist. Always puts on a great show.
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
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!
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.
Yes!!! Please and thank-you.
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!
It’s the guitarist for Kiss! Need more be said?! Lol rock n roll 4eva baby!
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. 🤘
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!!
Pick Me Please – I love KISS music
I love Kiss and I love Ace. Also free Tix are pretty cool!
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.
It would be great to see ace at the Aladdin!
Aces beat Kings!
I would love to see Ace!
