The Nightmare Returned! Alice Cooper and Ace Frehley Rocked The Appalachian Wireless Arena In Pikeville.

“The Godfather of Shock Rock” returned to the Appalachian Wireless Arena, in downtown Pikeville, Kentucky, on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021. This was his 2nd concert in Pikeville over the course of 15 years, with the last time performance being on October 7th, 2006. The Eastern Kentucky crowd was more than ready to rock the night away with two of the most iconic rockers in music history, Alice Cooper and Ace Frehley really need no introduction.
Starting the night was a long-time friend in Ace Frehley. Ace is the original guitarist and solo artist from the original rock group, KISS, who opened the show to an explosive crowd of nearly 3500. Ace Frehley played an hour-long set of songs ranging from his days with KISS through his last album ‘Anomaly Vol 2.’ That one was the second album of songs that had inspired him in his teenage years. Highlights included “Strutter,” “Parasite,” “New York Groove,” “Cold Gin,” and “Deuce.” Ace even threw in the Led Zeppelin classic, “Good Times Bad Times” for good measure. His energetic performance was just what the Doctor ordered and the perfect complementary set to the one and only Alice Cooper.

The Ultimate KISS Tribute Band, Kentucky’s Own Dressed To Kill at The MAC in Prestonsburg.

I found myself on a surprisingly warm winter evening at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, KY. Saturday’s show was the first of what will be a great year of shows at the MAC and I’m looking forward to attending as many as I can and so should you! There is no better venue in Eastern Kentucky to catch a show. The lights, the sound, the staff, the location…it’s all perfect!

Of the last four shows I’ve covered here at the MAC, three have been of the country variety. Two Tyler Childers shows, one Sundy Best (both Kentucky artists) and a Gov’t Mule show stuck in the middle. There was absolutely no doubt that tonight’s show was all about rocking and rolling all night long and of course partying every day. Once you entered the theater, you were immediately drawn to a large lighted KISS sign hanging behind and above the drum riser on stage. (more…)
