After seeing our first Ace Frehley show in Amsterdam 2 days ago, it was time to see show #2 in Zoetermeer today! After a hot car drive we arrived @ the Boerderij and we were the first, lol. We met Richie Scarlet again and talked a bit with him about the Hamburg gig last night. The show tonight was sold out, so it would be packed in there!
As soon the doors went open we got in and got the best spot in the house, right in front of Ace!
At 9:45 PM the Spaceman walked on the stage and from the first song Rocket Ride till the last Rip It Out, we had a blast! We could see everything Ace did, we could feel his sweat on us!
As in Amsterdam, Ace was in a good spirit, he shooked hands and you could see that he loved to play here!
Ace gave a guitarpick to us and to our suprise also his towel, we're so happy with it and will get a great spot in our KISS collection!
Here's a video of Shock Me with his smoking guitarsolo...
Setlist was almost the same as 2 days ago (see slideshow) and he played for about 90 minutes.
As we said before, we had a blast tonight and we think the shows we saw so far were better than the shows in 2009, Ace is really, really good these shows!
We're looking forward to show #3 in Bochum in a copple of days.
Here's a selection of photo's from tonight, enjoy...
When we arrived @ the Melkweg there were only a few fans waiting, so we knew we'll get a good spot tonight. The bus of the band was parked right in front of the venue, not sure if Ace was on board, but we found out that he was on the way from the airport. But guitarist Richie Scarlet came out of the bus and he was very nice to take a copple of photo's with us!
Around 7:15 PM the doors went open and as soon we were in, we went straight to the stage and yes, front row!
The "oude zaal" is not so big and you could also watch the show from a standing balcony. Around 9:25 PM it was time for Ace and all we can say is that he was in a good mood, making jokes and smile a lot. They started with Rocket Ride followed by Gimme A Feelin'.
A lot of Ace classics were played, as Break Out, Rip It Out & Space Invader...
Also some KISS tunes were played, like Love Gun, Deuce & 2000 Man, (see the photo slideshow for setlist) the band played great but the sound was loud!
There was a funny moment in the show when Ace was hiding behind a curtain, so funny! We had a great spot and had a awesome time at the show and loved every minute of it. Ace & Richie gave us a guitarpick in our hands, so cool!
Around 11 PM it all was over and we're looking forward to see Ace in Zoetermeer again.
Here's a selection of photo's from the show, enjoy...
