The Alice Cooper Thread

Use this thread to discuss anything and everything to do with the ultimate Rock 'n Roll ghoul - Alice Cooper

To start with, it seems that Uncle Alice is going to be the 'special guest' on Motley Crue's "farewell" tour

Can't help thinking this is a case of the Master supporting the Students

Possibly, though I can see why they'd have Alice opening for Crue. I take it that tour is in America? As far as I know, Crue are bigger than Alice over there. If it were here it'd likely be the other way around, or at least a co-headline.

The Nightmare - a 1975 television special featuring Alice and Vincent Price, based on the 'Welcome To My Nightmare' album...and a few other Cooper classics.

The last time Motley played a tour over here a few years back (saw them at the MEN in Manchester, they were excellent as usual. They played for three hours including interval and no support.) they headlined arenas. Alice is currently only selling out theatres - His last Manchester gig was the Apollo.

Weird, last time I saw Crue in the UK they were co-headlining with Def Leppard. Last Alice show I saw in the UK was Wembley Arena with Motorhead supporting, so I thought he was bigger.

Also has anyone read the graphic novel based on his The Last Temptation album? It's pretty cool. Been meaning to have another read of it, actually.

Forgot about the Leppard tour.:doh:

Alice varies in venue size around the UK. His 2011 tour with New York Dolls took in arenas and theatres.

Anyway it matters not. Both acts are great and Motley have given themselves serious competition and the fans a fantastic bill.
