Alice Cooper Tickets for Sale
Alice Cooper has been a fan of teaming up with other shock rockers in the last few years. In 2013, this means Alice Cooper tickets are a chance to see one of the earliest adopters of horror movie theatrics share the stage with Marilyn Manson. Dubbed the Shock Therapy Tour 2013, this is treatment will only last a month.
Beginning June 1 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the two artists will perform a total of 18 concerts before parting ways. After the final show, the July 2 show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Alice will continue to tour solo through just about the end of the month.
Cooper does not have a new album, so fans should expect to enjoy a set list comprised mostly of his most memorable hits. There might be a few songs from his recent albums, Along Came a Spider and Welcome 2 My Nightmare, but expect plenty of renditions of songs like “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and “School’s Out”.
Alice Cooper has been both a band and a solo artist. The band began back in Detroit in the mid-1960s as a passion of a few members from the high school cross country team. At first these young men simply decided to do this as a stunt, miming a Beatles song at a high school talent show. A funny thing happened. The guys liked the thrill of being on stage. They learned to play instruments and, building the band around lead singer Vincent Furnier and theatrics seemingly more appropriate for horror movies, became unlikely stars.
The group, after finally settling down with the name Alice Cooper in 1968 (in large part because it seemed so wholesome), released seven studio albums. The group gave way to a solo act, with Furnier adopting the band name and experimenting with different forms of rock. He tried everything from New Wave to Industrial rock, but his heart and his reputation always seemed to bring him back to the shock rock that made Alice Cooper the band so popular and so revolutionary.
Still, he did produce a few hits. The albums Weclome to My Nightmare, Trash, and Hey Stoopid were real certified hits and songs like “Poison” and “How You Gonna See Me Now” were real radio mainstays in their day.
As he grew older he maintained his persona and Alice Cooper has become both a legend and a brand. He has become one of the most popular DJs in these waning days of radio. Night with Alice Cooper plays classic rock hits and offers little stories about his interaction with the bands. He has become a tour de force as a restaurateur and has turned his fanatical love of golf into books and celebrity appearances. Alice Cooper still heads to the recording studio and always seems t be working on something new, continuing to release new material to this day. He also tours, though not nearly as much as he did in his youth.
Of late, Alice Cooper tickets have matched the Godfather of Shock Rock and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with a shock rocker from the generations of musicians that followed him and learned from his example.
