Ace Frehley at Marion Cultural and Civic Center

Make plans to seal this evening with a little Kiss! Skyline Creek Productions is bringing Ace Frehley to the Marion Cultural and Civic Center on June 28, 2024, at 7pm. Tickets starting at $49.

Ace Frehley, the legendary KISS guitarist, is coming to Marion! Here are a few things you probably know about Ace Frehley: He’s the original lead guitarist for KISS (which he co-founded in 1973). He was also their best—his song-within-the-song guitar solos are as much a part of KISS as the band’s seven-inch platform boots. And he’s always been the coolest member of KISS—rock ’n’ roll swagger, laid-back, mysterious—just ask Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Naoko Yamano of Shonen Knife, or Abbath of Immortal. Hell, even people who don’t like KISS still love Ace.

What you may not know is that Ace Frehley has not been a member of KISS since 2002, when he left his second tenure with the band (there’s a “spaceman” currently playing leads for the band, but it ain’t Ace). In his time away from KISS (1983–1996 and 2002–present), Frehley has put together the most successful solo career of any member—current or former.

Along with writing and recording new material, Ace has also been tirelessly hitting the road, playing festivals as well as dates stateside and in Australia and Japan (including dates with the mighty Alice Cooper). As always, Ace is traveling at an altitude that mere mortals will never understand—a life lived to the fullest and one that has defied everything. That said, if you ever see the Space Ace in the cosmos, there’s only one proper reaction: “Hey look, it’s rock ’n’ roll!”
