Alice Cooper returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall, after sold out performances in 2015 and 2016, with his own brand of rock psycho-drama for fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does! Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock, he has created stage shows featuring electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors. He continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for with his band, which features the three guitar attack of guitarists Ryan Roxie, Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen plus the rhythm section of drummer Glen Sobel and longtime bassist Chuck Garric.
Tickets range from $48.75 to $93.75
After 30 albums and some of the most famous rock songs ever recorded, you'd think Alice Cooper's demons would've been conquered by now—or maybe locked in a cage and fed undercooked meat. But the man who changed the course of rock music in the '70s with bloody guillotines, sparking electric chairs, slimy boa constrictors, and a little blood and eyeliner still has more to slay in 2005. Alice Cooper is master at re-inventing himself, shedding his skin like one of his snakes to become everything from a mascara'd grave robber to a leather-wrapped street hooligan, a film noir detective, insane asylum honor student, and nihilistic dada-ist. 2003's Eyes of Alice Cooper saw another of these shape-shifts, grinding musical gears with back-to-basics garage rock. Wrapping his famous sneer/snarl around a fistful of power chords, Alice—lean and mean—pumped the adrenaline to toxic levels. With the release of Dirty Diamonds, Coop is back in even finer form, promising more thrills, chills and doctor bills.
