Ace 'Space Ace' Frehley: he was everyone's favourite member of Kiss – well he should have been – and now he's coming back to the UK after finally restarting his solo career with the following dates:
April 10 - Sheffield, UK - Corporation
April 11 - London, UK - Astoria
Welsh glamsters Tigertailz have also just been officially annonced as support for both dates.
Feedback from Ace's current US touring run has been favourable with reports that he's dropping in a healthy amount of Kiss classic into the set.
A new Frehley solo album is due this year, although it was recently revealed that it's been delayed from it's original Spring release to the end of the year.
Despite numerous line-up changes within Kiss, as many of you will know, Frehley is rightly regarded as the definitive guitarist from the classic line-up along with Simmons/Stanley/Criss. An original member, he took the persona of 'Space Ace' when the band adopted costumes and played with Kiss from their 1973 formation to his deprture in 1982. He rejoined the band in 1996 but left again in 2002 at the end of the band's – supposed – Farewell tour.
