Win A Ticket To See Ace Frehley @ B.B. King Blues Club (11/24-11/25/2014)

Poster - Ace Frehley at BB Kings - 2014

The Details: Ace Frehley IS and always will be the original Space Man and founding member of the legendary masked men of Rock and Roll – KISS; In today’s music world we find him not only a successful solo artist and inspiration to anyone who chooses to pick up the guitar but also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Historically speaking he gave us the most popular of the KISS solo albums and entertained millions in the makeup and out of it with Frehley’s Comet. Now signed to eOne Entertainment, Ace has recently released an exciting new solo record entitled “Space Invader” and has embarked on a headlining tour that is going to convince all the more people to start playing. I am stoked to find him playing not one, but two standalone shows at the venerated B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to the incredible people behind the scenes at the club, a few lucky PiercingMetal fans are going to see this show for free.

Happy 40th Anniversary to KISS!!!! (1/30/1973-1/30/2013)

Today marks the 40th Anniversary of the first gig of the legendary KISS; Yep, on this day back in January of 1973, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley performed together under this name for a mere handful of people at a place known as the Popcorn Club. This venue would later be renamed to The Coventry which is very familiar to those who know their KISStory. The band wore garish makeup and each of them was a character of their own design with The Demon, The Starchild, The Cat and the Space Ace and it was a shock to the Rock and Roll system of the time when they all appeared together in this manner.

Ace Frehley @ B.B. King Blues Club (10/25/2011)

Logo - Ace Frehley

Artist: Ace Frehley
Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY)
Opener: The Biters
Date: 10/25/2011
Label: Rocket Science Records

Tonight was going to be exciting and the simple reason was that former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley was touching ground for not only one but two rocking shows at the legendary B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square. I somehow missed the last show that Ace did over at the Best Buy Theater so I was happy to have the chance to catch one of these sure to be amazing gigs by the Spaceman. Opening for the guitar alien would be the band The Biters and they would perform on each of the two nights. Based on my own itinerary I opted for the first show of the two and arrived just in time to catch the openers. The club was packed almost to the doors and here is how the night went down if you didn’t find yourself attending.

The Biters: Hailing from Georgia, The Biters were a new band to my musical senses and that left me slightly curious about how they might come across this evening. In the past the openers were not received well by this kind of fan support and I have seen bands like Queensryche given a cold shoulder when it came to a KISS music hungry crowd. I kid you not. Anyways, these guys were a whole lot of fun and delivered a set that was nothing less than Rock and Roll energy. Even though the club was packed solid, these guys were delivering a stadium quality fun time show. I don’t often think the openers are ready for the big time, but it seemed clear to me that The Biters were not going to settle for anything less. As I said, all of their music was new to me with the exception of their cover of Cheap Trick’s “He’s A Whore”. That classic band is actually a good type to compare these young upstarts to. They already have a couple of albums out and I think we have not heard the last of them. That is a good thing. I will definitely catch them again if I know that they are playing somewhere.
