Kiss fans can look forward to a guest appearance by co-founding member and lead guitarist Ace Frehley, at the 20th anniversary Indianapolis Kiss Fan Expo on 12 and 13 May. It will also feature Eric Singer, who officially joined the band as drummer in 1991 after the death of Eric Carr.
The fan-run event will take place at the Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana, with tickets on sale here. Frehley and Singer will be among the performers on the Saturday, with Bob Kulick, Todd Kerns and Brett Fitz. On Sunday, the Bruce & Bob Kulick Band (featuring Bruce, who was Kiss’ lead guitarist 1984-1996) will perform, with a special appearance by Ace Frehley, plus Four By Fate.
Also set to appear at the Expo are Lydia Criss — the former wife of Kiss drummer Peter Criss, who published the photographic memoir Sealed With A Kiss in 2006 — as well as Michael James Jackson, John Harte and Anton Fig. Former Runaways guitarist and subsequent solo star Lita Ford is also booked to appear on both Saturday and Sunday; the first day also features the Gene Simmons Band, but without the appearance of the bassist and Kiss co-founder himself.
General admission tickets for the Expo cost $45, with VIP tickets at $125 and Platinum tickets at $200. The higher tier tickets offer opportunities for meetings, autographs and photos with Singer and Frehley, plus a VIP lamimate or Platinum guitar pick, access to the Q&A sessions taking place and more.
Frehley, meanwhile, had special vinyl versions of his solo albums, 2009’s Anomaly (in a deluxe edition) and 2014’s Space Invader available as part of Record Store Day (21 April), at an extensive range of independent stores across the US. Additionally, The Official Ace Frehley Magazine, published by Fantasm Media in conjunction with the guitarist, is expected to ship in May.
