“Back, in the New York Groove” Ace Frehley to Perform at State Fair


Rock Hall of Famer, Ace Frehley, will be coming to the New York State Fair this summer on Thursday, August 22nd at 6pm. Frehley will be performing at the Chevy Court Stage.

“Ace Frehley original KISS guitar virtuoso is an awesome addition to our 2024 entertainment lineup at the Fair,” said Interim Director Julie LaFave. “From his riveting riffs to his singable solos, fans are in for a truly electrifying performance from this rock and roll legend.”

The State Fair says Frehley is one of the most recognizable musicians for Rock N Roll and Heavy Metal, especially with his signature Spaceman look when he was with KISS.

“His thundering riffs and sing-able solos have enshrined him as one of the most influential, inspiring, and impactful musicians of all-time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame® inducted him in 2014 as a Co-founder and the original lead guitarist of Kiss. Guitar World named the Grammy Award-nominated, Bronx-born Frehley in the Top 15 of its “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of All Time” and plugged the lead from “Shock Me” on the “50 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time.”

The State Fair said in a release.

The Chevy Court concert is free to attend with purchase of a State Fair admission. Other major artists announced for this year’s State Fair include: Sister Sledge, TLC, Dropkick Murphys, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Joey Fatone and AJ McLean, and Brian Kelly.
