Ace Frehley Hospitalized
Oh boy oh boy — in the past few months we’ve lost too many metal greats, and another health scare for a rock legend is NOT what we need. According to a press release and Facebook post, legendary KISS founder Ace Frehley — currently promoting his new solo album on tour — was hospitalized last night night after his show in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Tonight’s concert in Poughkeepsie, NY has been canceled:
Poughkeepsie, NY Concert Tonight Cancelled
Ace Frehley was admitted to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital following his show last night at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. After extensive testing, it was determined that Ace’s symptoms were due to exhaustion and dehydration.
In consultation with his doctors, Ace, who aside from the exhaustion and dehydration has been given a clean bill of health, has reluctantly agreed to cancel tonight’s sold out show at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY. The venue is working to reschedule the date in late September and expects to announce an exact date later this week.
In the meantime, ticket buyers for tonight’s show can use their tickets for the rescheduled date in September or return them at the point of purchase for a full refund. AceFrehley.com VIP Experience and Guitar Signature packages purchasers will be contacted by AceFrehley.com and can either obtain a full refund or use their packages on the rescheduled date.
Once released from the hospital, Ace will be heading home to Southern California to recuperate. We wish him a speedy recovery.
Thankfully it seems as if the issue isn’t too serious, but still… these health scares are always cause for concern with anyone who’s got as many miles on his body and liver as Mr. Frehley. We wish Ace the best and hope he’s able to get back on the road ASAP!
