Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Lots of press turning up after the announcement of the Motley Crue tour but most just mention Alice as Special Guest.. Please note that Alice Cooper will NOT be playing the Hollywood, FL and Syracuse, NY shows.
Alice and Tommy Lee were on 'Good Day LA' yesterday morning and you can watch it here.

At the tour press conference it was also announced that the forthcoming Sam Dunn Alice Cooper documentary 'Super Duper Alice Cooper' will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival which runs between April 16th and 27th in New York.

It appears a Beasto Blanco 'Meet And Greet' has been announced on February 12th in Padova Italy. This is NOT happening and the band will NOT be there as they have a show in Pavia, Italy that day. It appears it was announced by a support band without Chuck's knowledge.

Alice Cooper, Slash, Vince Neil and Sammy Hagar are set to perform at a charity show in Las Vegas on February 27th called 'Kerry Simon Says Fight MSA' .

One day tickets are now available for the Sweden Rock Festival, meaning you no longer have to buy a full weekend ticket just to see Alice.

Audio Fidelity will release "Billion Dollar Babies" on Hybrid SACD on February 4. As a bonus, along with the meticulously reproduced artwork, enclosed in every CD is the very collectible replicated "Billion Dollar Bill."

Rumours are circulating that Alice Cooper will tour with Motley Crue this year on their farewell tour. This apparently stems from a tweet by DJ and 'That Metal Show' host Eddie Trunk that has since been removed. An official announcement of the tour is expected at a press conferance on January 28th in LA. While this is officially unconfirmed right now a leeked poster suggest it is probably true, although it's also possible Alice will only do select shows.

Orianthi has been announced as appearing as part of Richie Sambora's band for this years Soundwave festival in Australia. Dates so far include Brisbane on February 22nd, Sydney on the 23rd, Melbourne in the 28th, Adelaide on March 1st, and Perth on March 3rd.
