Ace Frehley announces US tour

Ace Frehley has announced dates for a spring US tour.

Shows begin in Houston, TX on February 26 and run into mid-April.

The former KISS guitarist has been working on all-star covers album as the follow-up to 2014’s “Space Invader.”

“The album’s going to be about my influences,” says Frehley. “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.”

Slash joined the guitarist in the studio last summer to help record a Thin Lizzy classic, while other anticipated guests include Lita Ford, John 5, and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam.

Frehley’s first new album in five years, “Space Invader” scored a US Top 10 debut when it entered the Billboard 200 at No. 9 with opening-week sales of 19,000.
