Okay, so I suppose it shouldn`t really be that big a surprise. 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'.

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 plays 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.

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.

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".

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'.
