Ace Frehley Announces 2016 U.S. Tour Dates
Ace Frehley will be back on the road in late February, when he starts a new round of tour dates that will keep him in front of crowds through mid-April.
The currently announced shows, which you can check out below, begin Feb. 26 in Houston, and are scheduled to continue off and on until April 12, when Frehley concludes a two-night stand in New York. Further information can be found at Frehley's official site, along with details regarding several VIP packages available for the shows — including one that includes a meet-and-greet, personal photo with Frehley and an autographed guitar (guitar not included).
Frehley's latest tour comes in the midst of preparation for his next studio release, which will be a covers collection. "The album’s going to be about my influences," he said last year. "I’m probably going to do a Rolling Stones song, a Who song, possibly a Led Zeppelin song, maybe a Beatles song. Stuff from bands that I grew up on and greatly influenced me. Those are the songs I’d redo, besides vintage Kiss stuff and a Frehley’s Comet track."
While he puts the finishing touches on that album — which will also feature a guest appearance from Slash — Frehley's also looking ahead to his next set of new originals, which, as he told the Aquarian, could be assembled using a few vintage parts. "I’ve ... been going over a lot of old tapes that I found, that were in storage for about 25 or 30 years," said Frehley. "I found old Kiss stuff, but I also found stuff that was pre-Kiss, so it’s exciting. ... There’s definitely several song ideas that I might use in the next studio record of original music."
