Alice starts the final (announced) leg of his tour tonight, at the Palace Theater in Albany, NY. It's due to run until the end of the month, with a show at DeVos Hall in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 29th. Wonder if there will be any surprises in the set!


In other news, it's been suggested that The Hollywood Vampires will be the headline act at this years 'Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding' show on December 8th at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix. This will be the 17th annual Pudding show, and as always will raise funds for Alice's 'Solid Rock' teen center. There is still no official release date or information about the second Vampire's studio album or their live album which has been mentioned

azbigmedia .com has a short interview with Alice about the charity:

"Az Business Angels: How did you come up with the concept of Alice Cooper’s Rock Teen Center?

Alice Cooper: My wife and I and our dear friend, Chuck Savale, came up with it together. I wanted to create a place where teens could express themselves in a healthy, safe environment. Teens today have way too much time on their hands and if they aren’t playing sports, they end up doing drugs or joining gangs. The Rock Teen Center is a place where they can learn music, dance, art, video and audio recording and more, or just hang out with their friends, and it’s all free for teens 12 to 20 years old.

ABA: Why was starting this nonprofit so important to you?

AC: Teens are the reason I am successful. When I first started out, they bought my albums and tickets to my concerts. I decided it’s time for rock and roll to give back. I know what’s it’s like — I was a teen once, too, and had similar experiences. I would have loved to have had a Rock Teen Center when I was growing up.

ABA: What is your favorite story to tell related to the Alice Cooper’s The Rock Teen Center?

AC: There are so many success stories that have come out of The Rock Teen Center. Life-changing stories. We have had kids who were on drugs, from broken families, cutting themselves, contemplating suicide; and after coming to our Teen Center, they found hope. They discovered the arts and even a hidden talent or passion they never knew they had. We hear all the time how if it weren’t for The Rock Teen Center, they would’ve chosen the wrong path, or made the wrong decision.

ABA: What impact do you hope the Alice Cooper’s The Rock Teen Center has on the community it serves?

AC: People like to use the term “at-risk youth.” We want the community to realize every youth is at risk. Whether you come from the east side or the west side. No matter the circumstances, it’s a tough time to be a teen. By helping them cultivate a passion for the arts, we are able to make an everlasting difference in their lives so they, in turn, can contribute to their community. Our vision is to open more teen centers across the Valley and, ultimately, the country."


Lastly, guitarist Ryan Roxie has released a video from his new solo album, 'Imagine Your Reality'. It's a rocked-up cover of the Coldplay song 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face'

Alice has reiterated in an interview in the latest Classic Rock that there will be a new Alice album, a Hollywood Vampires live album and a new studio album as well.

We know these are coming, but the lack of information is very frustrating

Yeah i know you posted about it previously. It's good that they are actual plans and not sound bites from Alice on the spur of the moment when asked something. That was why i said Alice has reiterated.

Good news all the same.

Here's hoping there are a lot more new compositions on the Vampires album. The thought of Alice writing with Joe Perry is mouth watering. At least for me. :rockon:

Problem is...like The Doctor, we know Alice lies!

NOTE - I don't mean that in a nasty way, but his fans know he regularly 'embellishes' the truth, and never lets the facts get in the way of a good story or monologue!

Lets hope it's a lie about the Vamps live album. Let's hope it's a dvd instead. :lol:

On a serious note. It would be nice if he played more than just the obligatory Poison from the Trash album.

It's one of his biggest albums and boasted some decent rockers and hit singles like Bed of Nails and House of Fire or ballad Only My Heart Talking.

The origins to the chorus of 'Blow Me A Kiss', from the 'Brutal Planet' album (2000)?
