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.

You Wanted The Best And You’ve Got It! The Best Photos From Capture Kentucky: 2019 Edition!

We did it!! Another year on the books as 2019 a tremendous year for Capture Kentucky. We helped shed some light on many of the deserving Kentuckians that occupied many different stages. We took in shows in Colorado, Tennessee, and of course Kentucky. 2020 will have us checking off another bucket list item, so stay tuned for that one!

We’re truly lucky and blessed to have several of the best photographers around contribute to Capture Kentucky. Folks like Thomas R. Biggs, Estill Robinson, and Mike Howard are flat-out amazing and I can not tell you just how lucky we are to have them as contributors. We may tell some pretty good tales, but our bread and butter are our photos here. So, I truly hope you the last year of work, and we look forward to continuing our goal, which is shining a deserving spotlight onto Kentucky artists. AND to help break the stereotypes that Hollywood can kiss my butt for.

Enjoy!! (more…)

Top 15 Moments From Capture Kentucky’s First Two Years!

Here at Capture Kentucky, we’ve been incredibly blessed to be a part of some really great moments. Moments that will someday soon, be looked upon as part of our musical history. We’ve already seen the rise of several Kentucky artists and we feel there are plenty more on the horizon. Having said that, here is a list of the top 15 moments we were privileged to be a part of over the last two years!

First, an honorable mention. We created the Cinder & Smoke Fest which was held at Proud Mary BBQ in Lexington in 2018. It was the culmination of many months of work and it is something we are incredibly proud of. This year, we’re having the show in Jackson, Kentucky and when you see the lineup, you’re gonna want to snag tickets asap. So go ahead and clear 6/22 on your calendars. Trust me!

Now onto the list! (more…)

You Wanted It, You Got It…One Last Time…KISS Invades Louisville!

Having been a KISS fan since 1977, I’ve probably seen them in concert close to twenty times…and along the way, I’ve gotten a glimpse into the inner workings of the KISS machine. I have seen the original line-up in makeup, and the other various versions of KISS in and out of makeup. One common denominator in all of those versions is that they have always tried to deliver a great show for their fans and Tuesday night at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville, KY was no exception.

KISS descended upon the stage opening with “Detroit Rock City” (no big surprise there) amidst an arsenal of fire and flames. They came out guns a blazing, delivering more pyro than any KISS show up to this tour. The galloping notes of “DRC” start and the mighty KISS Army screams as this two-hour Rock‘N’Roll journey begins. KISS was definitely trying to leave their mark on this “End of The Road World Tour.” (more…)

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…)
