ACE FREHLEY Live In Poughkeepsie: Video Footage Available

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley played an unannounced concert at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York last night (Monday, October 29). Watch an eight-minute clip featuring a "medley" of covers from Monday night's concert below (courtesy of Leinadunn).

As previously reported, Ace Frehley is aiming for a January 2008 release date for his new solo album. Frehley — who recently celebrated one year of sobriety after relapsing during the summer of 2006 — has finished recording around 10 new songs for the effort but is looking to lay down two or three more in the next couple of months in order to make the CD "really special," he revealed during an appearance on Eddie Trunk's "Friday Night Rocks" radio show.

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. An official web site will also be launched before the end of the year.

Tickets to Ace Frehley's October 31 performance at New York City's Hard Rock Café as part of Eddie Trunk's annual listener Halloween party sold out a short time after they went on sale earlier in the month.

Frehley is very happy to be back playing for the first time since his halcyon days with KISS, the band he co-founded. "I can't wait to get up on stage and rock 'n' roll," said 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.
