Alice Cooper And Halestorm Announce U.S. Co-Headlining Tour

Shock rock master Alice Cooper shows no sign of stopping fifty years after bursting on the scene in a cloud of fake blood and feathers. The hard rock ringmaster has already announced a string of UK dates for this October.

Now, he's added American dates to his busy schedule, this time as part of a co-headlining tour with Grammy-winning hard rockers Halestorm.

In a recent interview, Alice told us that he'll be bringing a new production on the road this time around, saying, "You need a great opening, and you have to give them the hits. And we’ve come into a formula now where I do a thing in the middle, a Halo Of Flies or Dirty Diamonds, where the band can show off. I probably have the best touring band out there — our drummer, Glen Sobel, was voted by Drumming Magazine as best rock drummer; Nita Strauss was voted Best Female Guitarist by Guitar World — so I need to show them off a bit. And while they’re doing that, that’s when I get ready for the theatrical parts of the show. And the next time they see Alice, THAT’S when they get the theatrical part.

"Right now, it’s about taking those songs and milking them. And we want them to see an opening they haven’t seen. They know they’re going to get School’s Out, and Poison, and Eighteen, and Billion Dollar Babies — I’d be disappointed if I saw the Stones and they didn’t play Satisfaction and Brown Sugar. We’ll give ‘em the hits, it’s just how you package the hits now. For me, this, when we get into rehearsals, this is the most fun part of the show."

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday at 10am local time.
