AceShowbiz - It's just a bad week for KISS. Just days after Paul Stanley recovered from a surgery for his torn bicep tendon, the band's former member and guitarist Ace Frehley was admitted to hospital for exhaustion and dehydration.
"Ace Frehley was admitted to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital following his show last night at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA," Frehley's Facebook page announced on Saturday, April 16. "After extensive testing, it was determined that Ace's symptoms were due to exhaustion and dehydration. In consultation with his doctors, Ace, who aside from the exhaustion and dehydration has been given a clean bill of health, has reluctantly agreed to cancel tonight's sold out show at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY."
Frehley had previously canceled a concert on April 9 in New Hope, Pennsylvania due to a member of his band's illness. Unlike the New Hope gig, the Poughkeepsie concert is subject to reschedule for September. "Once released from the hospital, Ace will be heading home to Southern California to recuperate. We wish him a speedy recovery," the Facebook post continued.
On Friday, KISS was forced to perform as a trio as Stanley recuperated. Gene Simmons performed with guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer at the annual Race to Erase MS benefit in Los Angeles.
