December 9th 2009 is a day we’ll never forget in our KISStory!
That’s the day we did a Meet & Greet Vip Experience with former KISS leadguitarist Ace Frehley!!!
I’ve met Ace once in 1995 during a expo in Amsterdam (NL) So because it has been a while for me and Marina never have met him before, we both looked forward to meet him. Everything took place during Ace Anomaly European Tour in Bochum (Germany)
We arrived later at the venue then we had expected, caused by traffic jams, but we had plenty of time after all because the Meet & Greet started around 9:45 PM. A little bit nerveus we went inside the room were Ace sat behind a table…
I went to Ace first, give him a hand a said that it was great to meet him again, I give my items for signing and asked him to sign them personal to me. So he signed my Ace solo Picture Disc and Anomaly CD. Told him how much I loved the CD what he really appreciated. After he signed them it was time for my photo with him and Marina took a coupple of pics. I gave Ace a hand again and thanked him and that I looked forward to his show.
Now it was time for Marina to meet Ace, when she sit next to him Ace said to her "Another blond girl " with a smile. He signed her CD and told him that it was great to meet him.
I took some pics and than I asked if it was allright that we could have a photo with Ace and us together. That was no problem and we both sat down next to Ace and we got a great photo with him.
Ace was very relax and friendly during our Meet & Greet with him, even that it all took only a short time, he signed several items for us, we got more pics with him than we had hoped for and Ace was in a great mood! We had a awesome experience!
After the Meet & Greet it was time for Ace show and what can we say, it was great to see him rockin’ on the stage. As said before Ace was in a great mood, he joked a lot on the stage, about how small Bochum was. The sound was great and the band played tight. Ace played 4 songs from his new CD (see for setlist in slideshow) He didn’t use his lightning guitar during New York Groove. Ace played before approx 700 crazy fans. We had a great time at the concert. Because we did the Meet & Greet, it was impossible to get to the front. I made some pics to get a idea how it was like...
