Alice Cooper

  • Alice Cooper - Picture 1

Heavy metal legend Alice Cooper returns to Manchester Arena this year for his first show in the city in over five years. Joining Alice in Manchester will be special guests The Mission and The Tubes.

 

The three members of the original Alice Cooper band - Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith - will join him on tour in the UK for a mini-set, returning to these shores 46 years after they first shocked and enthralled us on their historic 1971 tour.

 

Tickets for the Wednesday 15 November show are on sale now, priced from £40.00 (subject to booking fees).

 

Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock. With his influence on rock & roll long since acknowledged, his place in rock history and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame secure, and his multiple gold & platinum albums, sold-out tours plus countless honours and career achievement awards, there is little that Alice Cooper hasn’t achieved in his remarkable career. 

 

Still touring worldwide year-in and year-out, still hosting his worldwide syndicated radio show (heard on Planet Rock 5 days a week in the UK), still writing and recording new music, Alice Cooper show no sign of slowing down.

 

The Mission were formed by two members of Sisters Of Mercy in 1986, Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams.  Songs like Wasteland, Tower Of Strength and Deliverance became classics of the 1980's goth rock scene and beyond.  The band were heroes of alt rock, headlining Reading Festival twice and, on one tour, selling out seven consecutive nights at London's legendary Astoria Theatre.

 

“I remember during the summer of 1972 being on scout camp and hearing this new song on the radio that absolutely mesmerised me. School’s Out by Alice Cooper. Loved it, still do," said The Mission's Wayne Hussey. "Fast forward to 1987 and our first headline spot on the Friday night at Reading Festival. Headlining the Sunday was Alice Cooper. And now we’ve been invited by Alice to join him on his UK tour in November."

 

The Tubes come from the same art school, shock rock background as Alice Cooper and, originally, the same city (and actually the same schools) - being formed by Phoenix, Arizona natives and appalling some of the same UK cities in the 1970s. They made their name in psychedelic San Francisco however, honing their satirical act, concept albums and ambitious stage shows that showed an Alice level preference for self made props and costumes.  Frontman Fee Waybill's characters – like addled British glam rocker Quay Lewd caused outrage in the UK, as did their bondage gear. 1977 saw their show banned in many British cities but the music cut through with the seminal White Punks On Dope defining their sound and they are still going strong with latest album Mondo Pulp.

The doors for Alice Cooper will now open at 5.30pm. Please ensure you arrive as early as possible to ensure you are in the building in time for the show.
