Disc 2 is great. Then I skipped the interviews listened to the 1971 Killer show. Awesome!

I hope you both enjoy the show, Alice easily made my top ten, and Ace was so bad, it was epic.

the Ace Frehley Band was possibly the loudest rock show I've ever heard indoors, the precautionary ear plugs paid off. The band was excellent and performed a totally professional and about as cliqued a show as it's possible for a rock group to play. It was like watching a loosely constructed 80's rock video with immense volume. They performed a mix of Kiss tunes and a few of Ace's solo tunes. Unfortunately Ace didn't seem to know where he was most of the time, you would not believe how bad his stage craft was, he can still play his ass off, but his main purpose appeared to be flinging guitar picks into the audience. He'd perform a little riff, toss a pick into the audience, another little noodle, point at a random fan kiss the pick and toss it in their general direction. He literally threw fifty or sixty picks into the crowd. Every couple of songs, during someone's solo, Ace would disappear for a minute or two and seamlessly return freshly combed brushed and rehydrated wearing a different tee shirt, different raybans and playing a different guitar, half way through the set a team of roadies appeared and transitioned a replacement pick festooned mike stand, as stand number one's pick supply had run out.....
The band were absolutely killing it, pulling all the rock'n'roll faces and poses for the posse of photographers in attendance. Maybe it was jetlag or the fact it was his second show in as many days, but poor old Ace was wondering around missing his vocal cues, getting caught at the wrong end of the stage when he should have been singing front and center, their stunt guitarist Richie Scarlet was taking up the slack on Ace's vocals and chasing Ace around the stage, so he was in the right place for some excellent dueling guitar action, which included fingering each other's chords and strumming each other's riffs, it was a beautiful thing to behold, Richie could really play, apparently he's been in one version or another of the Ace Frehley band for years and knows "the act" inside out. He kind of resembles Keith Richards only older!!!!! Eventually Ace reached a soaring crescendo and turned the secret knob on his final guitar which began emitting clouds of purple smoke. A let's get ready to rumble type voice said that "Ace Rocket-Man Frehley had left the building".....Ace plainly hadn't left the building you could see him standing right there in the purple fog holding his breath, waiting for the gasmask wearing roadie to guide him safely through the smoke to the side of the stage.....I was laughing hysterically at this point.....It was just so Spinal Tapesque.....

great review, ghost.
my mental picture of it all is quite comical... and sad.
i also can't help but wonder if the spaceman is back on the sauce.

Ace's set was great, but too short at 45 min.
He a funny guy, too.
Chris Wise, of The Cult, was his bassist.

Alice Cooper played 21 songs in a 90 min. set.
Be My Lover, Halo Of Flies and Paranoiac Personality were my favorites.

Orianthi came out and played the solo during School's Out. Very tight and powerful set with lots of actor/dancers. Cool props, too.

It was fantastic! I was in the fourth row. Alice and band were in great form! One of the best pure rock and roll shows I’ve been to in a long time. So many great songs and the theatrics and showmanship were very exciting and a lot of fun. Brutal Planet, Billion Dollar Babies, Lost in America, Feed My Frankenstein, Cold Ethyl, Be My Lover, Under My Wheels, School’s Out, I’m Eighteen, Serious, Only Women Bleed, and on and on. You’d never think Alice was 70 the way he performs. You missed a good one, Plook.
