Ace Frehley Fractures Wrist in Fall, Cancels Three UK Shows
Although he no longer stomps around in giant platform boots, former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley seems to be having some trouble staying on his feet. Last month, he tumbled from the stage during a performance in New York City, and this past Sunday (Nov. 27), he took a nasty spill at home, fracturing his wrist.
That injury has led the legendary guitarist to cancel two planned shows in Wales and one in London.
“Ace Frehley has been forced to cancel his three upcoming U.K. tour dates due to a fractured left wrist resulting from a fall in his home,” reads a statement on the rocker’s website. “Doctors applied a fiberglass cast to Frehley’s hand and arm, and he has been instructed not to play guitar or use his wrist for a minimum of 10 days.”
“Ace would like to convey his deepest heartfelt apologies to all of his U.K. fans and to make it up to them,” the statement continues. “He hopes to be able to announce the additional rescheduled dates soon.”
In the meantime, British fans can get their Ace fix by reading ‘No Regrets: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Memoir,’ which hit book stores earlier this month.
