Ace Frehley and KISS reunited for the first time in 17 years for an acoustic set on the annual Kiss Kruise. Frehley joined Kiss for four songs, including “Nothing to Lose” and “Rock and Roll All Nite.” The group also played their cover of the Rolling Stones’ “2000 Man” – which Frehley sang on 1979’s Dynasty – as well as Hello’s “New York Groove,” which Frehley covered on his 1978 solo debut.
Before playing “Nothin’ to Lose,” Frehley said, “This is great… this is so great. Thank you guys for inviting me up.” Paul Stanley then added, “All this couldn’t have happened if we hadn’t happened. We started this. So thank you for being here.” Along with Frehley, the acoustic set also featured former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick.
We can only hope this is a sign of things to come for the upcoming KISS farewell tour.
