Alice Cooper's first headline UK tour in 5 years comes with the anticipation of a big 2017 for Coop.
For the UK tour, Alice is bringing 2 bands with him to reflect two of his best sides - outrageous theatrical controversy and the darker, gothic rock that Alice influenced. The Mission were formed by two members of Sisters Of Mercy in 1986, Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams. Songs like 'Wasteland', 'Tower Of Strength' and 'Deliverance' became classics of the 1980's goth rock scene and beyond. The band were heroes of alt rock, headlining Reading Festival twice and, on one tour, selling out 7 consecutive nights at London's legendary Astoria Theatre. “I remember during the summer of 1972 being on scout camp and hearing this new song on the radio that absolutely mesmerised me. School’s Out by Alice Cooper. Loved it, still do," said The Mission's Wayne Hussey. "Fast forward to 1987 and our first headline spot on the Friday night at Reading Festival. Headlining the Sunday was Alice Cooper. And now we’ve been invited by Alice to join him on his UK tour next November."
The Tubes come from the same art school, shock rock background as Alice Cooper and, originally, the same city (and actually the same schools) - being formed by Phoenix, Arizona natives and appalling some of the same UK cities in the 1970s. They made their name in psychedelic San Francisco however, honing their satirical act, concept albums and ambitious stage shows that showed an Alice level preference for self made props and costumes. Frontman Fee Waybill's characters – like addled British glam rocker Quay Lewd caused outrage in the UK, as did their bondage gear. 1977 saw their show banned in many British cities but the music cut through with the seminal White Punks On Dope defining their sound and they are still going strong with latest album Mondo Pulp.
Alice Cooperstars, from 9 Fan reports
London - Alexandra Palace
Absolutely Amazing Concert from Chris Tennison, 05/11/11This was the first concert that I'd been to with my wife and it was fantastic. We both went in costume (myself as a Gravestone and my wife as a Vampiress) and the welcome and feeling from the rest of the fans was more than worth the strange looks we recieved on the trains.
Alice Cooper was amazing on stage and his band was brilliant. Bit disappointed by the freak show but still very enjoyable. Alexandra Palace was an excellent venue and we will definitely be going there again and will certainly be seeing Alice Cooper again.
Birmingham - NIA Academy
Alice Coopers Halloween Night of Fear from mr_wolke, 03/11/11The event was well organised, staff were professional and the entrances were safely accessible; there were very short queues.
I am/was and will not be a big fan of the New York Dolls, who were invited to play prior to the main gig but this did not bother me since I could leave my seat and return, after their show. The sound system was not at all suitable for their noise and it sounded like theyd been shouting through a can! :) Alice made a brilliant entrance, his show was delightful and one could feel his special dotty sense of humour.
I personally loved every minute and was almost touched by the show; I was certainly emotional being able to see the Master of Horror and Fear in persona! However, the gig was worth every penny and I hope that there will be more events like that in the future! However, it would be great if one could choose the type ot ticket on Eventim for mobile phones/smart phones. This would perfect it!
BIRMINGHAM - NIA
5 STAR PERFORMANCE from Killer, 03/11/11I'd waited forty years to see Alice Cooper perform live and to say it was well worth the wait would be an under statement. An absolutely brilliant performance by one of the worlds greatest showman...the props were truly amazing.
Even my son rated the show one of the best he's ever seen (and he's seen loads believe me). Throughly enjoyed singing along to my old favourites. Keep it up Alice, Im looking forward to your next tour!!
