Alice Cooper has announced a lengthy US and Canada tour for the spring of 2018. The legendary rocker will hit the road for a North American trek, dubbed “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper”. The tour kicks off on 1 March in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and runs through to 29 March in Indianapolis.
Cooper released Paranormal, his first album in six years and twenty-seventh overall, via earMUSIC in August. The record features special guests including U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., who plays on nine of the twelve new songs; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Deep Purple/ Rainbow stalwart Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members.
Upon release, Paranormal quickly climbed the iTunes rock charts, landing at No. 1 in twelve countries and the Top 5 in twenty countries.
Alice Cooper told The Spokesman-Review about his current tour: “It’s a pure Alice Cooper show with the snakes and guillotine and the straight jacket, but there’s a bunch of stuff you haven’t seen before — there’s a 13-foot Frankenstein. It starts in fourth gear and stays there… It’s like a freight train and every single song has some theatrical device.”
Cooper added that he is working with the best touring band of his career.
“The one thing I know is going to happen is they’re going to be dead on,” he said. “We get to be in The Show. The most fun you have all day should be on stage, and they feel that way.
“I believe the next show is going to be better than all the others,” he said.
