Alice Cooper Hits The Road With A New Nightmare
Published: May 3, 2016
Kicking off his 2016 tour in Biloxi, Miss., on April 29 and touring almost continually right up to Halloween in Los Angeles, Alice Cooper brings an updated show – “Spend the Night with Alice Cooper” – and his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does.
AEG Live and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts present the concert on Friday, August 12 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 21.
Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo. He continues to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn just like a great horror movie.
Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock, drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock. The group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors. Cooper continues to tour regularly, year in and year out, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics for which he is best known.
Cooper’s catalog of hits and anthems including “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr Nice Guy,” School’s Out,” “Elected,” “Poison,” and others, are featured in his live show along with a mix of newer songs, album cuts, a sequence of cover songs and tributes to his "dead drunk friends," the latter of which inspired a spin-off group, the Hollywood Vampires, with his friends Johnny Depp and Joe Perry.
