Woah, Space Ace, heavy on the Spaceman! Not quite ready to get my hopes up for an exercise Ace will ignore, but I'll call your bluff and raise your setlist as follows:

Rocket Ride
Rockin with the Boys {replace one of these 1st two Spaceman songs with DO YA
Bronx Boy
Outer Space
Into the Void {nice surprise!
Manic Depression {a bit too cerebral, but ok... Hendrix
Never in my Life {nobody knows this one, replace with Kicks!
Mission to Mars
New York Groove
Shock Me
Cold Gin {replace with 2000 Man
Rock Soldiers

otherwise, good to go!

I would go:

1)Rip It Out (should always open with this one).
2)Parasite (Ace's song writing masterpiece).
3)Trouble Walkin' (completely badass).
4)2000 Man (Better than the Stones on this one).
5)Speedin' Back To My Baby (Second Best Song On The 1978 Album).
6)Insane (horribly underappreciated song, it ROCKS!!!)
7)Rock Soldiers (Ace's best song other than stuff from 1978).
8)Do Ya (Just kills it on this one, I don't think he ever played it live either).
9)Rocket Ride(Don't like it has an opener, but he has to play this one for sure).
10) Shock Me (Solo)
11)New York Gove (Ace's highest charted single).
12)Cold Gin (Has To Play That One).

The opener definitely has to be
Rip it out
Other then that in no particular order
Shock me
Parasite
Cold Gin
Speeding back to my baby
Snowblind
Ozone
I need some love
Rocket Ride
Trouble Walking
Do ya
Manic Depression

To be fair I never listened to much of Frehley's Comet and I've never even heard his newer solo stuff. The only album out side of Kiss I really listend to was Trouble Walking. And I'm a huge fan of the song Manic Depression.

AGREE ABOUT "INSANE!" It should not die on the ash heap of Kisstory... a nice punky slice of 80's attitude Ace.

Here we go
1. Rip It Out (Best opener for him)
2. Parasite
3. Rocket Ride
4. Trouble Walking
5. 2000 Man
6. Break Out
7. Talk To Me
8. Strange Ways
9. New York Groove
10. Shock Me (solo)
11. Cold Gin
12. Deuce

I think this is enough for an Alice Cooper audience to be into it, and throws enough Ace stuff for us. I f this were a solo Ace show, I'd have 8 more tunes, and a lot more Ace post Kiss. I also tried to be realistic with my choices.

Mine is pointless to list because it would probably only appeal to me and maybe 2 others if we're lucky. It wouldn't include any KISS songs before his solo album, and then weird tracks like Ozone and Lost in Limbo. I actually saw him do Lost in Limbo and he accidentally forgot about playing Rip It Out...it was early in the Space Invader tour. It was awesome, even though I think Rip It Out is great...but I'll always choose an obscure, rarely performed track over something done regularly. Not too long after he dropped LiL and added Rip It Out to the set...
