Legendary guitarist Ace Frehley will jam on October 31 with some of his friends at New York City's Hard Rock Café — located at 1501 Broadway at 43rd Street. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for the 8:00 p.m. jam, part of Eddie Trunk's annual listener Halloween party.
Frehley is very happy to be back playing for the first time since his halcyon days with KISS, the band he co-founded. He's been holed up in the recording studio of late working on his upcoming solo album, due for a 2008 release. "I can't wait to get up on stage and rock 'n' roll," says Ace of the one-off show that already is garnering tremendous response.
Although information on the set and who will play with Frehley is being kept under wraps, Ace says to expect KISS classics and solo originals. The traditional costume contest, complete with prizes, will, of course, be part of the festivities.
Ace's new album was reportedly recorded with a trio of Ace, Anton Fig on drums and new bassist Anthony Esposito (LYNCH MOB). Ace's touring band will feature Ace, Anthony and other players yet to be announced.
