Ace Frehley will make “socially distanced” concerts next August
Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley announced that he will play “socially distanced” concerts next August. This alternative is being tested around the world so that mass gathering events can happen before a Covid-19 vaccine is made. Most of them happen just like a drive-in cinema. With people in their cars or outside them with area restriction.
Ace Frehley 2020 socially distanced tour dates:
- August 06 – Warrendale, PA @ Jergels
- August 07 – Warren, OH @ Robins Theatre
- September 18 – Houston, TX @ Warehouse Live
- October 10 – Lawrenceburg, IN @ Lawrenceburg Event Center
- October 23 – Atlantic City, NJ @ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
- December 31 – Stockholm, Sweden @ Grona Lund
Robins Theatre, where one of the concerts will happen talked about the safety precautions, saying:
“After an unplanned break, the Robins Theatre is preparing to reopen. In compliance with the Responsible Restart Ohio guidelines. As set forth by the Ohio Department of Health. As we move forward, the safety of those who enter the facility is at the forefront of our efforts.”
“And as you may already know our restrooms are completely touch-less. Additionally, an electrostatic deep cleaning of the entire theater will be performed before we open. We have installed plexiglass at the concession area as well as hand-sanitizing stations at the entrance of the theater and all of our restrooms.”
“Seating will be within the social distancing requirement. Ushers and concession workers will be required to wear protective masks. As well as gloves, to ensure the safety of all of our patrons. A UV cleaning will be performed. In addition to our conventional cleaning after each show. In addition, a free face mask will be provided to those who want one.”
Back in April, Frehley talked about the possibility of playing with Kiss again:
“I texted Paul [Stanley] and Gene [Simmons] last week and just wished them well, and Peter [Criss]. I got a text from Doc [McGhee, KISS manager]. So Everybody’s okay — thank God. Knock on wood. Also Eric Singer’s been sending me some silly texts [Laughs] ‘Cause me and Eric always got along really well on the road.
“Everything’s cool. What’s gonna happen is gonna happen. But everything is delayed at this juncture, so who knows? Also I’m doing my own thing. Unless they come forward and the price is right, you’re not gonna see me anywhere close by.”
