Detroit Signing

Alice Cooper announces Detroit Signing

Alice Cooper is set to be signing copies of ‘Detroit Stories’ on September 23rd at Rock City Music in Livonia, MI between 4.30 and 6.30 local time. To attend you have to buy a ticket for $25, but this does includes a copy of ‘Detroit Stories’ on either CD/DVD or vinyl. Only copies of the new album will be signed, and there will be no posed photos. All attendees will need proof of vaccination or a negative covid test. Get all there details here.

Word is getting out that ALL VIP meet and greet packages for the upcoming US tour have apparently been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. If you haven’t received an email yet be patient, you’ll likely be contacted closer to your show. Fans are being offered three options: 1. A partial refund, but you still get the VIP bag and contents, 2. a partial refund down to just the price of your ticket, or 3. a full refund. The first option seems to be the default unless you contact them and request one of the others.
This shouldn’t really come as any great surprise, as currently numerous US tours are being cancelled or postponed on a daily basis, as members of either bands or crews are testing positive after a few shows. Currently it seems the Cooper shows are still on, but make sure you continue to keep an eye on venue sites as obviously this could change.

Alice posted a short statement and video a couple of days ago, commenting of the sad death of legendary Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts:

“We have lost one of rock and roll’s true gentlemen. Charlie Watts kept the beat for the world’s greatest rock band for over 50 years. I consider him the greatest pocket drummer of all time. Every time I would go backstage to see The Rolling Stones, Charlie was the first to greet me. He will be sorely missed and impossible to replace but I’ve no doubt The Stones will go on. My message to Charlie? Rest In Beat!”
– Alice Cooper

According to Rolling Stone Alice will be taking part in Audible’s new ‘Words + Music’ storytelling series. The AC edition will be released on October 7th and entitled: ‘Who I Really Am: The Diary of a Hollywood Vampire‘, “where he’ll not only share tales from his lengthy career, but ‘introduce’ fans to the person that created and crafted the Alice Cooper persona.”

US TV This Week

Alice Cooper on US TV This Week

Alice Cooper will be the subject of ‘Breaking The Band’ on ‘Reelz’ TV Channel in the US this Sunday (Aug 22nd) at 9PM EST. It looks like it will be a basic documentary with various ‘talking heads’ discussing AC history, although going by the trailer it looks like it will concentrate on Alice alone and not the band. You can see the trailer here.

In other US TV news Alice will be back on ‘Counting Cars’ as the new season began this week. You may remember at the end of the last season Alice appeared and brought one of his cars to the custom car garage for work. This new episode will show the results. The new season starts on August 25th and it would make sense for this first episode to conclude the AC story. You can see a trailer for this here.

Alice appears on the front cover of the latest Sept/Oct issue of UK mag ‘Sorted’ with a 6 page article inside which is manly about golf and religion.

Ryan Roxie makes an appearance on the new single by Swedish band ‘Fans Of The Dark’
called ‘Escape From Hell’. You can find the song here.
There’s also a a new MetalSludge interview with Roxie available here.
