Alice Cooper will make her long-awaited return to the road on a featured tour in September and October. The tour kicks off September 17 in Atlantic City and runs through October 23 in Atlanta. Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will appear as a special guest on all shows from September 18 through October 22. All confirmed dates are below.
Cooper, an inductee into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, typically spends up to six months a year on the road, bringing his iconic brand of rock psychodrama to fans old and new, appreciating him as much as the audience. Known as the architect of shock rock, Cooper (both in Alice Cooper’s original band and as a solo artist) rocked the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and clear the danger at every turn. , like a great horror movie. Alice Cooper’s concerts remain a “must see” attraction.
“We’ve always had fun touring together and it should be a rock concert with Ace and a great way to bring everyone back to live gigs,” Cooper said. “It should be a great evening of virtuoso guitars!”
Ace Frehley, KISS co-founder and 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, continues his thoughts on a life in music with Origins, Vol. 2. Used to cover versions throughout its musical history – having recorded, renamed and covered such notable nuggets as “New York Groove”, “Do Ya” and “I Wanna Go Back” during its eight previous efforts in the studio – this new collection presents a thoughtful and exciting selection of songs that have inspired and helped shape the legendary guitarist. The most important thing for the original Spaceman is to deliver an album that his fans will enjoy, but an album where every song also has a place in the jukebox of his life.
“I’ve known Alice for over 30 years,” says Frehley. “We’re good friends, and we’ve toured a lot together and always had fun. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands makes for a great event that no one will want to miss down the road since. over a year of the pandemic has been difficult for everyone in the music industry, and I can’t wait to see all the fans happy, healthy and ready to move. “
