I was thinking of going but the location (downtown) and the set list have me thinking of skipping this. The tickets are cheap but I'm not that excited about this show. The last time I saw Ace solo was in the early 90s in Austin for the "Just for fun" tour and it was horrible.

It'll be a show time decision for me if I go...maybe ;).

BEFORE ANY FAKE OUTRAGE STARTS ABOUT ACE'S STARTING TIME TONIGHT... NOTE THERE ARE TWO OPENING ACTS...
STARTING AT 8:30 PER THE VENUE FLYER/POSTER:

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Typically ACE has been going on at 9:15 ~ 9:30, most nights/
Not sure why it's different, here, BUT THIS IS BEING OPENLY PROMOTED AS A 10:30 START TIME FOR ACE ~ BUT THEN IT'S A CLUB.... THEY MIGHT JUST WANT TO KEEP YOU DRINKING & TIPPING THE SERVERS?!?

Great show, lots of energy, played for almost 2 hours, everybody singing along and dancing. First opening band was a little forgettable, second band a bit more interesting, had a ZZ Top vibe going on.

Ace did come on a little bit before 11, but nobody seemed to mind or get upset. No set list surprises. Didn't get the vibe that Ritchie Scarlet and Ace were on the outs as alluded to in a previous review here, they complimented each other very well.

Its kind of funny, when I hear that Ace is 'sloppy', I don't really hear that at all when he plays the solos to his songs, I just hear some improvising while staying in key to make things interesting and fresh.

If you are an Ace Frehley fan, you'd be foolish not to go... unless you have to work at 5 or 6am, even then just go! 8)
