"Space Man" Ace Frehely Is On A Mission

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley is coming to Australia to perform on the same stage as Alice Cooper.

It’s no secret that Laurel is a HUGE KISS fan, so when we found out one of the band members was touring, we HAD to have him on the show!

“Have no fear, the Ace is here!” 

Ace Frehley, the Space Man, is THE original guitarist from the band.

While at their absolute pinnacle, the members of KISS began releasing solo albums.

The 66-year-old's breakout single garnered the most success, which was surprising to his highly popular band mates.

“I think they were in shock!” he said, “I don’t think any of the guys in the band expected my album to do as well as it did.”

“I was on a mission,” he said, after a meeting with producers who were skeptical about his record. “I knew I had the goods, so I just had to show the world.”

Ace will be touring Australia in October and with none other than legend, Alice Cooper sharing the stage.

“Alice and myself have been friends since the 70s and we have done a couple of concerts together over the years in the States, but I’ve never toured with him,” Frehely said of Cooper. “So this is going to be a big treat for me and for Alice, I think it’s going to be a fantastic show and a great tour!”

And does he still wear his infamous makeup?

“No no no, I don’t wear make up anymore!” he said.

Ace Frehley and Alice Cooper will be performing on Wednesday 25th October at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
