Ace Frehley at the Nokia in NYC 3/21/10


Recommended Posts

Just got back from the city after seeing my favorite member of Kiss, Ace Frehley, live at the Nokia in Time Square. Excellent show that started kinda late (9:40pm) but was worth the wait. Being sober for many years now, Ace was on fire showing the speed and solos that made him a legendary guitarist. Playing multiple Les Pauls, Ace mostly played Kiss and did a few covers. His band was pretty damn good but I couldn't help but laugh since they kinda looked like some of the members of Green Day. I also liked that Ace took a few shots at Gene and Paul. He played 22 songs and did a lot of teases like Gimme Shelter, Satisfaction, and a little Sabbath. The Space Ace returns. Here's the setlist (K is for Kiss, RS is for the Rolling Stones, H is for Hello, and FC is for Frehley's Comet):

Rocket Ride K

Parasite K

Snow Blind


Pain in the Neck

Into The Void K

Speedin' Back To My Baby

Love Her All I Can K

Talk To Me K

2,000 Man RS

Cool, Love Her All I Can was a suprise. It's one om my fav tracks from Dressed To Kill.

I caught the Atlantic City show the night before. ALOT of hardcore Ace Fans.Very cool to see-although I never liked Kiss.

I recorded most of it from 2nd row with my HD cam. Unforutately my two hour disc was full at one hour 24 so I couldn't record the best part of the show. Next time I bring back up.

Overall it was a good show. Loved the guitar on fire/smoking bit and the following song which was mostly solo. I now have respect for Ace. (sorry it took so long!). It also makes me appreciate Mr. Page that much more.

did they have two warmup bands?? I didn't get their names but the first one was a punk rock type that was OK. The second band sounded like TCV somewhat, but without the layered rock. Most songs had no lyrics which is rare to see live. I really enjoyed them.
