Platinum-selling guitarist “Space Ace” Ace Frehley with special guest Geoff Tate will perform April 1 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

Ace Frehley is a musical maverick and iconoclast adored by millions of fans around the world. Through his seminal work with KISS and as a solo artist, Ace Frehley is championed as one of the most influential guitar players of the last four decades and his impact on popular music is immeasurable. With his smash 1978 solo album and post-KISS work including 2014’s “Space Invader,” Frehley continues to be the best-selling member of the original band.

Heavily inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Pete Townshend, Frehley was a devoted student of rock ’n roll. Little did the Bronx-born musician know that his revolutionary work as a member of KISS and a solo artist would inspire millions of guitar players around the globe to follow in his footsteps.

Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard, Lenny Kravitz and the late Dimebag Darrell of Pantera are among the artists who have pointed to the legendary guitarist as a profound inspiration.

On April 10, 2014, Frehley and the original lineup of KISS were inducted into the Rock ’n Roll Hall Of Fame.
