On october 28th we had our Return Of The Comet Meet & Greet in Miami @ Kruisefest, a few minutes after we had our Meet & Greet Experience with Ace Frehley and earlier that day with Peter Criss!
Return Of The Comet included members from Ace's first band Frehley's Comet as John Regan & Tod Howarth and Richie Scarlet who was a member of the band some time later. With drummer Steve "Budgie" Werner they formed the Return Of The Comet and toured the US this year. So it was quite unique to have this meet & greet today.
We brought some cool items with us to get signed by the band, some of them were just signed by Ace Frehley:
Frehley's Comet first album, signed by John Regan & Tod Howarth.
12" vinyl single of Frehley's Comet: Into The Night signed by Ace, John & Tod.
CD covers of Frehley's Comet albums Second Sighting & Live + 1 signed by Ace, John & Tod.
Our last item was signed by the whole band: John Regan, Tod Howarth, Richie Scarlet & Steve "Budgie" Werner!
During signing our items we talked with all of them and we wished John a happy birthday! It was great to meet them and they were so kind to us. After we got everything signed we got our photo with the band and as all you can see above they turned out great!
When our time was up we said to them that we're looking forward to their show tomorrow and to the Frehley's Comet reunion, because Ace will be joining them for a few songs!
The next day we went to their show @ Kruisefest and it was so cool to hear all those Frehley's Comet songs finally live, like it's Over Now, Words Are Not Enough or Calling To You. We've enjoyed every minute of it! When it was time for the encores you could feel that something special was going to happen and then John announced the original Spaceman: Ace Frehley and we've got goosebumps at this moment, a Frehley's Comet reunion, and we were there! They played 2 songs together: Breakout & Rock Soldiers, here's our video of the last one:
It was so cool to see them all play together, it was like we got a moment back in time! We wished they played some more tunes but we're happy to witness it all tonight.
This was the setlist: Shot Full Of Rock, Something Moved, Animal, Into the Night, It's Over Now, Words Are Not Enough, Lost In Limbo, Bad Boys Of Rock, Do Ya, Calling To You & With A Little Help From My Friends. Encores: Breakout (with Ace Frehley) & Rock Soldiers (with Ace Frehley)
