Alice Cooper and Halestorm have announced a string of US dates for July and August with ‘Motionless In White’ opening. This will be a Co-headline tour but so far it isn’t clear who will play last. What it does mean is both headline acts will presumably get equal time on stage.
“We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band. Can’t wait to get to the first show,” said Alice Cooper.
“We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on rock ‘n’ roll… Alice Cooper,” said Lzzy Hale, frontwoman of Halestorm. “Alice is our A in the ABC’s of rock music, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday March 8th, but watch out for an AC.com pre-sale a couple of days before that, and possibly a Halestorm pre-sale as well. There is also a Blabbermouth pre-sale starting Wednesday. Password for that one is ‘NIGHTMARE’.
