“Space Ace” has blasted off on tour and is heading in our direction.

Ace Frehley and special guests The Mylars are heading to bergenPAC in Englewood on Saturday, February 3 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale.

As a founding member of KISS, Frehley developed a highly theatrical rock n’ roll style with a band known for their pyrotechnics, firebreathing, blood-spitting and irreverent approach to performance. And their glam metal makeup made them instantly recognizable throughout the world.

Frehley departed from the band in 1982 and officially launched his solo career. Touring as both Frehley’s Comet and the Ace Frehley Band, he has released seven solo albums. In 2016, Frehley released “Origins, Vol. 1,” a collection of cover songs by bands including Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks. Frehley teamed up with former KISS bandmate Paul Stanley on a cover of Free’s “Fire and Water.”

In 2014, KISS was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“I play guitar in such an unorthodox way,” said Frehley in an interview with Guitar World. “I’ve never taken a guitar lesson. One of our assistants brought it to my attention a few months ago that, sometimes, when I play chords, my thumb is on the fretted side of the neck. I have no idea why or how I do it, but I do.”

You can catch Frehley’s unorthodoxy on Saturday, February 3 at bergenPAC. Head to the bergenPAC website for tickets and further information.
