Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has landed in Australia ahead of the kick-off of his short tour in support of his new solo album, "Anomaly". His first interview with "Sunrise", Australia's number one breakfast show (airing on Channel 7), can be viewed at this location.
Guitarist Todd Youth (D-GENERATION, DANZIG, THE ROYAL HIGHNESS, MICHAEL MONROE) will join Ace Frehley for his tour of Australia.
Comments Youth: "I can't even begin to say how excited I am to play with Ace!!
"Like many guitarists my age, Ace is the reason I started playing guitar; he's my Chuck Berry, my Jimmy Page. Every note I play, it all comes back to Space Ace, and I think [Frehley's new album] 'Anomaly' is a smoking classic Ace record,so I'm planning on it being a blast!!"
The dates are as follows:
Feb. 01 - Perth, Australia - Metropolis Fremantle
Feb. 04 - Adelaide, Australia - HQ Complex
Feb. 05 - Melbourne, Australia - Palace Theater
Feb. 07 - Sydney, Australia - Enmore Theatre

"Anomaly" sold around 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.
In addition to the standard CD release, unique "Anomaly" packages were made available at Wal-Mart and Best Buy locations. The Wal-Mart version includes an Ace autographed tattoo while the Best Buy edition is printed on silver stock, like the KISS "Double Platinum" album.
