Surprise Show In Stockholm

As previously reported The Alice Cooper band (Chuck, Nita, Ryan, Glen and Tommy) played their own show at the Hard Rock Cafe in Stockholm last night ahead of the big Motley Crue show tonight and who should show up for a few songs but the boss himself! Together they performed 'Be My Lover', 'Lost In America' and School's Out'. You can currently see footage from the show on Periscope (24 hours only) with more footage is turning up on YouTube including Chuck singing 'Ace Of Spades', Tommy singing 'I Wanna Be Sedated', and Roxie '20th Century Boy'.

Alice At Stone Free Reporting Error

There are a couple of online news sources reporting that Alice Cooper will be appearing WITH Rick Wakeman as part of Wakeman's performance at the Stone Free Festival in London next June. This is NOT correct. As correctly announced yesterday Alice will be headlining the night before Wakeman with his own band and show. The reports are simply a result of a journalist not being able to read the press release correctly.

Alice was at the Classic Rock Awards in Camden, London last night and received the 'Classic Album' award for 'Welcome To My Nightmare'. You can see some red carpet footage at GettyImage and there are many photos appearing online showing Alice with other guests including Brian May, and Jimmy Page.

Ken Bloor has posted his photos from Swindon and London over at STUK's photos from the UK shows are also up in the photos section.

Alice Cooper Headlines New Stone Free Festival

It's not even a week since the last UK show at Wembley but Classic Rock has announced that Alice Cooper will headline a new festival at the O2 in London on June 18th 2016. The two day event also features Marillion, Rock Wakeman, Blackberry Smoke and others. “Coming to the UK is always like coming home for us. Fans in the UK are always high energy, always there," says Cooper. "Headlining the very first Stone Free Festival at London’s The O2 in June next year is an example of why we feel so welcome. It will be my only performance in the UK next year, so that makes it even more special. And, as always with my show, you can expect the unexpected!"
Tickets go on sale November 20th.

Billboard have an article about the 'Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood' album.

Small Stuff

Nita Strauss is interviewed by 'That Metal Show' host Jim Florentine for his podcast taling about playing with Alice and the treatment of ladies in the Rock business.

The Times apparently has a review of the Wembley show but it's unfortunatly hidden behind a paywall. You can see a few lines of the article including "It didn’t help that the support act was better than the main attraction".

Pretties In New York Press

One more UK show to go tomorrow but back home to recover and catch up on some news. STUK Photos should go up at the weekend. There are a couple of reviews with pics from the UK shows at Chronicle Live, and This Is Wiltshire while the Guardian has Alice chatting about the 'Peter and the Wolf' album that is out on November 13th.
UPDATE: News Guardian also has a glowing review of the Newcastle show.

Ryan Roxie has just posted that the band will be doing a 'pre-show jam' at the Hard Rock Cafe in Stockholm on Nov 15th ahead of the show there. Tickets are available now.

Village Voice has an interview with Neal Smith and Dennis Dunaway talking about 'Pretties For You' ahead of Nick Didkovsky's recreation of the album live on stage in New York on November 8th. It looks like both Neal and Dennis will be at the show and I'm told there *could* be a 'special encore' after the main album performance. Village Voice also have an interesting interview with Nick which gives you some background on the man and his music. This promises to be a unique night if you can make it.

Mitch Lafon also has a new interview with Neal Smith chatting about his forthcoming movie 'Desolation Angels: Rise Of The Boas', his current band KillSmith, the recent reunion performances with Alice Cooper in Texas, working on the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES album, Glen Sobel, the current Alice Cooper band band, Bob Ezrin, and his favorite Alice Cooper album!
You can also hear Dennis in the latest episode of 'The Soundtrack Series' entitled 'In In The Band'.

Two Down, Four To Go

Just a quick catchup while we all recover from the last couple of days. Most people probably know by now that Michael Monroe and his guitarist Steve Conte joined Alice and the gang last night for an extemely energetic 'School's Out'. Michael's opening sets were excellent, especially in Swindon, and a special round of applause for Michael's 'mic cord wrangler' who must have had the hardest job of all untangling the lead every 30 seconds!
The setlist for the UK shows was tweeked to include a couple of different covers from the Hollywood Vampires album namely 'Cold Turkey' and 'Manic Depression' with the 'Five To One' intro added to 'Break On Through' as well. At both shows everyone was on fire including great audience reactions. There's four more to go with Crue of course, but they won`t beat these two.
Oh, and welcome to the UK Miss Nita Strauss!! It's taken a while but I hope you found us worthy!

Anyway, onto some press: Today's Telegraph has a half page interview with Alice. The Western Morning News has a review of the Plymouth show. Flood Magazine has a short interview with Alice.

Glen Sobel Plays Show With Crue

Tommy Lee of Motley Crue was unable to play at last nights show in Buffalo, NY due to the sudden onset of tendinitis. But the show must go on so the band called upon Alice Cooper drummer Glen Sobel to stand in. Glen posted the following to facebook:
"It's been an insane day of prep and making cheat sheets. I can't describe what an honor it's been to rock tonight with Vince [Neil], Mick [Mars], Nikki [Sixx] and Tommy, who was handling some of the electronics and cueing me through the in-ear monitors from side stage. No, I did not do the 'Crüecifly' drum solo. But I played with the guys for the finale of 'Home Sweet Home' on the hydraulic stage by front of house. It's one of those things… Had I known when I was a kid this would happen one day… You get the picture. Here's to hoping Tommy Lee's wrist heals up quickly. I'm familiar with the experience of playing though pain while being on tour. It isn't fun."
Today is a day off so hopefully Lee will recover in time for tomorrow's show in Bridgeport.

Nita Strauss is featured on a new 'No Guitar Is Safe' podcast talking about her career, playing with Alice and replacing Orianthi.

Original Band Join Current Band in Dallas!

The title says it all. I suppose it shouldn`t be a complete surprise after the 'Good Records' show on Tuesday, but last night in Dallas, TX Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce joined the current band on stage for 'School's Out' at the American Airlines Center. Glen stepped aside for Neal at the kit, while Chuck left bass duties to Dennis and instead sang backup and added some cool harp (as he had the previous night). And it sounded fantastic! Check it out below or for another view here.

The Original Alice Cooper Play Live!

Well, last night in Dallas was truly a special night.

Well done to Christopher Todd and his staff for putting in so much effort to make this even special for everyone who could attend.

The Yorkshire Pudding

Monday night saw Alice playing a special show in aid of SolidRock at the 'Tavern and Wine Store' in Phoenix, AZ and AZCentral have a report. The show featured 'British invasion' band covers that the original band (as the Earwigs/Spiders) used to play back in the 60s, along with a few of his own songs.

The show was a very exclusive one, dubbed 'The Yorkshire Pudding', with extemely expensive tickets and featured Nils Lofgren and Roger Cline joining Alice and local backing band 'The Saucy Jacks' for 'School's Out' and 'Route 66' respectively. All money raised goes to help SolidRock.

Dennis Dunaway is still out and about promoting his book with two special apperances coming up next week. On Oct 6th he will be joined Michael Bruce and Neal Smith in Dallas, at the Good Records (don`t miss this one if you are in the area!), and on Oct 8th he and Michael will be at The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma to host a songwriting 'Masterclass' at 1pm.

Vampires In Rio 2

First of all an apology. The link I posted yesterday for the Rock In Rio live stream turned out to need a Brazillian location to watch, but all was not lost as AOL also broadcast the show worldwide an hour later. I updated the news story but it was maybe too late for some people. However even if you missed the show last night the kind people at Rock In Rio have posted the whole thing for you to watch now! Check out the video below! What a show it was. From the fireworks at the start to the closing 'Brown Sugar' the band were on fire! Lzzy Hale (Of Halestorm) joined the band for 'Whole Lotta Love',  Zak Starkey for 'I'm A Boy' and Andreas Kisser (From Brazillian band Sepultura) joined for 'School's Out'. Sure, there were mistakes but the energy was the thing and they had it in spades.
There's a couple of other Vampires related articles to mention as well. The Evening Standard has a sort piece on Depp the musician, while The Daily Mail have a lovely video of Alice, Johnny and Joe helping to hand ot hearing aids to people in Rio yesterday.

Away from the Vampires Nita Strauss has been performing guitar clinics in New Mexico and you can check out an interview with her at Blabbermouth.

Fake Pudding Tickets

A message from Alice Cooper's SolidRock:
"Buyer Beware! We have announced several times there is NO Christmas Pudding this year due to Alice's tour schedule. Apparently someone has opted to sell fake tickets to this year's Pudding so please share this ticket link and let people know this is a SCAM."

Hollywood Vampires Second Night

As expected there has been endless coverage of the Roxy shows over the last two days. The second show saw Marilyn Manson join the band for 'Eighteen' as well as the return of Tom Morello, Perry Farell and Kesha. You can check out some coverage of the shows at the following sites: Daily Mail, Entertainment Weekly, NME, Relix, Rapid News, and Bild (German),  as well as which has a ton of photos and links.
Now the shows are done it can`t hurt to list the setlist for the two nights which was as follows: Raise The Dead, My Generation, I Got A Line On You, Cold Turkey, 5 to 1/Break On Through, Manic Depression, One/Jump Into The Fire, Seven And Seven Is, Whole Lotta Love, Jeepster, I'm A Boy, School's Out/Another Brick In The Wall, and  My Dead Drunk Friends (partial)/Billion Dollar Babies/Train Kept A Rollin', with Brown Sugar/Honky Tonk Woman as the encore on the Wednesday show and Eighteen and Brown Sugar on Thursday. There's one more Vampires show scheduled for next week at 'Rock In Rio'.
In related news it looks like the 'Hollywood Vampires' album will chart well in both the US and UK. At the time of writing it's at #17 in the US and #23 in the UK!

Dennis Dunaway will be bringing 'Doctor Dreary's Snakes! Museum' to the annual Chiller Theatre Expo this year which takes place between October 23rd and 25th at Sheraton Parsippany Hotel in Parsippany, New Jersey. Dennnis is raiding his attic and cupboards for all sorts of cool Alice Cooper related memorabilia, much of which probably hasn`t been see in public for over 40 years! A few years ago I was luckly enough to get a glimpse of some of the things Dennis has, and can safely say this promises to be well worth checking out if you can get there. Also check out the very cool poster for the event.

Glen Sobel will be at Drummerfest 2015 at Milwaukee music superstore 'Cascio Interstate Music' on October 24th.

Peter And The Wolf In Hollywood and Vampires Live

Peter and the Wolf In HollywoodNovember 13th sees the release of a unusual Alice Cooper project which I doubt anyone could have foreseen. 'Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood' is a new version of Prokofiev's classic piece 'Peter and the Wolf' with narration by Alice Cooper himself! This new version of the classic tale has been updated to take place in modern day Los Angeles (the original story was set in Russia) and will be released as a download, CD and an iPad interactive childrens app.  Alice says "I first heard this back in Detroit, when I was six or seven years old. My mom put the record on and I was instantly transported to another world, and it has been huge fun for me to do something new after nearly 50 years in the business. I love the fact that it’s moved on, and that Peter has come to Los Angeles to meet his grandfather, who turns out to be an old hippie! That gives the story a fresh dynamic. And I like that he’s not in the least bit terrified by the wolf, when everybody else is freaking out.”
You can check out the trailer for the album below. More details can be found here.

Continuing on a classical note ClassicFM sat Alice down to listen to three clips from classical works and filmed his reactions. You can see the results here. Alice will be a guest on the station for 'Charlotte Green's Culture Club' this Sunday at 3pm.

Back to Rock and Roll, The Hollywood Vampires of course took the stage in Los Angeles last night for their first show. I haven`t seen too much about it yet (it's early here) but Orianthi posted a photo from the show which you can see here and there's much more on the Vampires Twitter feed. It appears that the band were joined by Perry Farrell, Geezer Butler, Tom Morello, and Ke$ha during the show. The setlist included most of the album plus 'Seven and Seven Is', 'Train Kept a Rollin', 'Brown Sugar' and Honky Tonk Woman'. The band play a second show tonight.
UPDATE: has a review with details and video.

Alice appeared on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' on Tuesday night and you can catch a couple of clips from it now courtesy of BraveWords. You may be able to see the full show here depending on your location.

There's been quite a bit of Hollywood Vampires promotion in the last few days so here's some highlights: Interviews at WZLX (text), (video), WAAF (audio), WKLH (audio), Diamonds On The Avenue (video) and The Guardian (text).

Hollywood Vampires Play Hollywood

According to Associated Press the Hollywood Vampires will perform two shows at The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA on Sept 16th and 17th. The Roxy is very small, so this is sure to sell out almost instantly when tickets go on sale Friday.
UPDATE: Former Guns 'n' Roses rhythm section Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum as well as Tommy Henriksen and Bruce Witkin (Piano/Guitar) will join Alice, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry the band for these show, and presumably the Rio show as well.
Here's the full press release:
LOS ANGELES, CA: In 1972, on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar.  It was a gathering place for rock stars living in or passing through L.A.  “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the Vampires.  “I would walk in on a typical night,” Alice says, “and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.”
Now, returning to where it once began, the Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry) have announced today two shows at the notorious Sunset Strip music venue, The Roxy.  This will mark the Hollywood Vampires only U.S. appearances on September 16 and 17, and will surely be the most sought after ticket in town. Joining the Hollywood Vampires live will be Matt Sorum on drums, Duff McKagan on bass, Tommy Henriksen on guitar, and Bruce Witkin on piano and guitar. Tickets are on sale on August 14 for the September 16th show at and September 17th show at
Additionally on September 24, in what will be their only international appearance, the band will head to Brazil for “Rock in Rio.” Before that show, the band will partner with Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization that has provided more than 1.8 million free hearing aids to people in need in more than 100 countries, to offer and fit hearing aids to more than 150 people in need.   After the hearing aid fittings, the Hollywood Vampires and Starkey Hearing Foundation will bring a number of individuals to the show so they can hear music for the first time in their lives.
“Hearing connects us to life, our families and to the world around us,” said Bill Austin, founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation. “It’s a precious gift, and we are excited to work with the Hollywood Vampires to introduce so many to the world of sound and help them hear music for the first time.”
Three years ago, Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking).  An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires live again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album.  Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and with producer Bob Ezrin, the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.  The new album is set to be released on September 11 and all artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.
