Ace Frehley, former lead guitarist and founding member of Kiss, is heading to New Zealand in April for his first ever solo shows on these shores. Ace, who rocked out as "The Spaceman" during his days with Kiss, will be joined by a three-piece band to play a selection of songs from his vast back catalogue, including tracks from his most recent album, Space Invader. Here are the details for his upcoming shows...

Ace Frehley New Zealand Tour

Friday 24th April, James Caberet, Wellington
Saturday 25th April, The Studio, Auckland

Tickets on sale tomorrow Wednesday 28th January from HERE at UTR, RPM, Slow Boat and Real Groovy.

Here's some fan footage of Ace performing 'Gimme a Feelin'' from new album Space Invader late last year...

And here's some old footage of KISS performing Ace's classic cut 'New York Groove'...


Ace Frehley has announced his first Australian shows in five years and his first New Zealand solo shows ever.

"I can't wait to get down to New Zealand and Australia with this new lineup. I'll be performing Ace classics as well as songs off my new CD 'Space Invader' for the enjoyment of the fans. Let There Be Rock!"

With a setlist that includes such stellar KISS diamonds as ‘Strutter’, ‘Cold Gin’, ‘King Of The Night Time World’, ‘Love Gun’, ‘Deuce’, ‘Shock Me’ and ‘Detroit Rock City’, you just know these will be ferociously exciting shows.

The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee recently made history with his new album ‘Space Invader’, which debuted at #9 on the Billboard Chart.

“It cannot be denied how many fledgling guitar players he has inspired over the years, or how many established players name Ace their favourite!” Uber Rock

Joining Ace on stage will be Richie Scarlet, who rode shotgun performing rhythm guitar and vocal duties on Ace’s ‘Trouble Walking’ platter and has toured with Sebastian Bach; bass guitarist Chris Wyse (Ozzy Osbourne & The Cult); and Scot Coogan (Lita Ford & Nikki Sixx).

As well as his hit single “New York Groove” Ace will also be performing gems that you’ll never hear KISS play, including ‘Rocket Ride, Strange Ways’, and ‘Parasite’. Ace Frehley live in 2015 is an absolute must for anyone who loves gutsy arse-kicking rock.

“Concert goers looking for a night of fun, no holds barred Rock-n-Roll with excellent guitar work, and wall to wall energy and excitement, look no further than Ace Frehley live on stage.” Cryptic Rock
