Our Meet & Greet With Ace Frehley!!!

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...

19 November 2009 at 21:46 Dit klinkt verleidelijk, ik twijfel omdat de concerten van Kiss in 2010 er ook aan komen. Voor de prijs van vip heb ik ook weer een aantal kaarten voor Kiss, ahhh

Weet jij misschien wanneer de kaartjes te koop zijn? ze staan nog niet op ticketservice.nl

Reply Rockhead says:
1 October 2009 at 00:00 @ Daan; In Duitsland begint de verkoop morgen 1 oktober…
Reply Daan says:
1 October 2009 at 19:43 Oke, kun je ze ook in Nederland krijgen?
Reply Rockhead says:
1 October 2009 at 23:09 @ Daan; Je kan ze alleen online bestellen via o.a. Eventim.de

Wij hebben tickets voor Ace’s show in Bochum op 9 december. De dag ervoor zijn we bij het concert van Alice Cooper…
Reply Daan says:
2 October 2009 at 08:25 Oke, beadnkt voor de tip.
Gaaf dat je naar Alice Cooper gaat!
Reply daan says:
2 October 2009 at 18:48 Op Eventim.de staan alleen tickets voor de duitse shows, weet je ook waar je kaarten voor Rijssen kunt bestellen?
Reply Rockhead says:
2 October 2009 at 23:43 @ Daan; Volgens mij kan je ze via Livenation.nl bestellen, ik denk dat de verkoop zaterdag begint…
Reply daan says:
3 October 2009 at 14:24 Ik keek net op de site van Lucky in Rijssen, daar kun ej ze ook bestellen (dom dat ik daar neit eerder aan dacht), maar toch bedankt voor de tip!!

8 October 2009 at 21:24 @ Wobbiewob: Ik ben op een bericht aan het wachten of er Meet & Greets met Ace zal zijn tijdens zijn Europese tour.

Wat ik wel weet van zijn Australische tour, is dat daar wel M&G zijn. Ze kosten $ 300,- en er zijn maximaal 30 M&G kaarten te koop, per concert.

Laten we hopen dat Ace dit ook doet in december…
Reply WobbieWob says:
9 October 2009 at 20:11 € 300,00 is dat dan per kaart of per ontmoeting, want ik ga met mijn zoontje en mijn vriendin en om dan 3 kaarten te kopen,
voor 1 foto, dat vind ik nog al gortig.
Hoe was dat bij jou ontmoeting met KISS.
Je vriendin was er ook bij, hebben jullie toen allebei € 1000,00 betaald ?
Reply Rockhead says:
10 October 2009 at 13:15 @ Wobbiewob; De prijs voor een M&G is altijd per persoon…
Reply Erik says:
12 October 2009 at 11:58 Als het Australische dollars zijn, zou dat in Euro uitkomen op zo’n € 180 per persoon. Vorig jaar stonden er ook Meet & greets met Ace Frehley gepland, maar die gingen toen om organisatorische redenen niet door. De prijs zou toen, als ik mij niet vergis, € 125 per persoon zijn. € 300 lijkt mij dan ook wat aan de hoge kant (trouwens, in 1995 was een ontmoeting met Ace Frehley, waarbij hij ook een handtekening gaf en je een foto met hem kon maken, gratis (afgezien van de entree voor de betreffende Expo, omgerekend € 11).
Reply WobbieWob says:
12 October 2009 at 23:50 @ erik.
is inderdaad veel en ik ga het dan ook geenszins betalen.
En ook geen € 1000,00 voor een Meet & Greet
met een geschminkte KISS.
Voor dat geld ga ik liever een show in bv
Italie bezoeke met m’n kinderen.
Reply Rockhead says:
13 October 2009 at 21:01 De prijs van AU$ 300,- was een speciale prijs voor de Autralische KISS fanclub, de normale prijs is AU$ 400,- (!)

Tot nu toe is er nog steeds niets bekend over een eventuele Europese Meet & Greet met Ace. Vorig jaar was de prijs $ 125,- maar helaas ging het toen niet door.

En wat de prijs voor een Meet & Greet met KISS betreft, de ene fan doet het en de andere gaat liever er voor op vakantie…
