Ace Frehley to perform 1978 solo album at New Jersey KISS Expo

Ace Frehley will deliver the first-ever live performance of his self-titled 1978 debut solo album in its entirety during the upcoming 2018 edition of the KISS Expo in Parsippany, NJ.

The December 7-9 event at the Hilton Parsippany will see Frehley headline a KISS Christmas party over the weekend that will also feature appearances by Lita Ford, Lydia Criss, KISS album artist Ken Kelly and tribute band KISS Nation, among others.

All four original KISS members simultaneously issued solo records at the height of the group’s success in the 1970s, with Frehley leading the way in both album sales and singles chart success, as his cover of the 1975 Hello track, “New York Groove”, reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Each record in the solo series achieved US platinum status for sales of one million copies, with all peaking in the Top 50 of the Billboard 200: Gene Simmons at No. 22, Frehley at No. 26, Paul Stanley at No. 40 and Peter Criss at No. 43.

The projects have just been reissued separately and in a new limited edition vinyl box set, “KISS: The Solo Albums - 40th Anniversary Collection.”

Frehley has also just released his eighth album, “Spaceman.”
