Alice Cooper To Play London Club Date…And Announces Halloween Tour
Alice Cooper is to play a club show in London later this month.
Yep, the man has confirmed a show at the 100 Club on Sunday, June 26.
Says Alice: “It’s been a while since we played such an intimate venue. But strip away the theatrics and we are a pedal-to-the-metal rock band, born in clubs like the 100 Club. We play every show like that anyway and it will be fantastic to reconnect in that atmosphere. This show comes with a health warning – ‘We don’t do acoustic, this will be loud’.”
Alice has also announced the following shows for October:
Tue. 25|: Sheffield City Hall
Wed. 26: Bristol Colston Hall
Thu. 27: Birmingham NIA
Sat, 29: London Alexandra Palace
Sun. 30: Manchester O2 Apollo
Mon. 31: Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
The New York Dolls will be the support act on all shows from October 27-31.
Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday, June 17. They cost £33.50 everywhere, expect in London where they’re £34.50. Get them at www.livenation.co.uk
Songs from new album Welcome 2 My Nightmare, to be released in September, will feature on this tour.
But there’s more. For the London gig, Alice wants to get together as many weirdos, freaks and ghouls as possible. He wants to go further than last year, when a similar cast of insaniacs was used at The Roundhouse.
“It takes a lot to shock me,” says Alice, “But last year even my stomach was churning, Britain really has got freaks. That’s what’s Halloween is all about. It’s my favourite time of the year, bring on the gore!”
Reckon you’ve got what it takes to impress Alice? There will be auditions held in Hyde Park on Monday, June 27. You can submit your audition tapes at http://www.alicecooper.com/. Three acts will be chosen to open at Alexandra Palace.
