Ace Frehley

at The Colonial Theatre

Tuesday, September 27 at 8pm
Tickets: $60

BUY TICKETS

Through his work as a founding member of the band, KISS, and as a solo artist, Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer Ace Frehley is championed as one of the most influential guitar players of the last four decades. With his smash 1978 self-titled solo album and post ­KISS work including Anomaly, Frehley continues to be the best selling member of the original band.

Splitting from KISS in the early eighties, the first fruits of Ace’s creative efforts came in 1987 with his new band, Frehley's Comet, and eponymous debut album, which yielded the radio hit, "Into the Night." From there, Frehley was on a roll, issuing a string of well ­received solo albums, including Second Sighting and Trouble Walkin.

Reuniting with KISS in 1996, Frehley teamed up with his old mates for a spectacularly successful five-year run, including high profile appearances at the Super Bowl and the Olympics. Splitting from the group in 2001 after their Farewell Tour, Frehley needed to recharge his creative batteries and took a much needed sabbatical after decades in the rock and roll circus. Eight years later, in 2009 Frehley returned to the music scene with his first new studio album in twenty years. A commercial and artistic triumph, Anomaly, proved to be his highest charting album since his classic 1978 solo debut.

Award-winning singer/songwriter, Liz Longley, has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. According to Longley, she opens her soul in the service of her art because that's what matters most to her. "Every time I get into these songs they resonate with me, lock with me, because they're based on something I went through. I hope they connect with people and that they'll help with whatever they've gone through." Longley's songs and vocals invite complimentary comparisons to Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and Nanci Griffith—all artists she's shared the stage with.
