We just got word from Ace Frehley's publicist that the legendary KISS guitarist was admitted to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital after performing last night.

The 64-year-old Frehley was diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration. Thankfully, doctors determined he will make a full recovery. He just needs to rest. Here's the official statement:

Poughkeepsie, NY Concert Tonight Cancelled

Ace Frehley was admitted to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital following his show last night at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. 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. The venue is working to reschedule the date in late September and expects to announce an exact date later this week.

In the meantime, ticket buyers for tonight’s show can use their tickets for the rescheduled date in September or return them at the point of purchase for a full refund. VIP Experience and Guitar Signature packages purchasers will be contacted by and can either obtain a full refund or use their packages on the rescheduled date.

Once released from the hospital, Ace will be heading home to Southern California to recuperate.

Our thoughts are with Ace and his family for a quick recovery. Frehley was out on tour this week promoting his new album, Origins: Vol. 1, which we reviewed earlier today.

We had a chance to sit down with Space Ace recently to see who could guess his songs quicker, him or Shazam, the music recognition software. Watch the hilarious clip below:
