Ace Frehley made a stop in his hometown of New York City late last month. Playing in the middle of Time Square, Ace and his band put on a fantastic show at New York City’s Playstation Theater.
Ace started off the show with one of his original numbers, Rip It Out. This song was originally featured on Ace’s 1978 self-titled solo album. The crowd instantly got into the song without any delay.
What really made the show was watching how tight the band played together. The interaction between Ace Frehley and Richie Scarlet was unquestionably nothing but pure class and talent. You could tell that both of them were up on the stage playing music because they wanted to, which is always something that is refreshing to see. Ace and Richie exchanged both guitar licks and many smiles during the show. I don’t think anyone could ever get tired of watching them play guitar.
With Ace playing in his hometown, he could not skip out on playing New York Groove. And he didn’t. Without wasting any time, Ace ripped right into one of the best versions of New York Groove that anyone will ever see. If you were in attendance, consider yourself one of the lucky ones!
The highlight of the show was the encore. There were several KISS tunes played throughout the show such as Love Gun, Strange Ways and Shock Me. However, Ace Frehley saved the best for last. The encore featured Detroit Rock City followed by Deuce. If you’ve been a lifetime KISS fan, this is a show you will not want to miss. Catch Ace Frehley out on this road with JD Simo through October.
