ALICE COOPER-OL’ BLACK EYES IS BACK TOUR
Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock.
Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the group created a stage
shows that featured 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.
Alice has been touring consistently, year in and year out, averaging over 90 concerts annually,
both within the USA and internationally, 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.
Cooper was born in Detroit Michigan, and moved to Phoenix with his family. The Alice
Cooper band formed while they were all in high school in Phoenix, and was discovered in 1969
by Frank Zappa in Los Angeles, where he signed them to his record label. Their collaboration
with young record producer Bob Ezrin led to the break-through third album “Love It to Death”
which hit the charts in 1971, followed by “Killer,” “School’s Out,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and
“Muscle of Love.” Each new album release was accompanied by a bigger and more elaborate
touring stage show. 1974 saw the release of a “Greatest Hits” album, and then Cooper, in 1975,
released his first solo album, “Welcome to My Nightmare” in 1975, accompanied by the
legendary groundbreaking theatrical Welcome to My Nightmare concert tour.
