News : Alice Cooper returns to Australia on 40th anniversary of first ever tour here

By on April 19, 2017

Alice Cooper, the 69-year old shock rocker and household name, will return to Australia’s shores this October to mark the 40th anniversary of Cooper’s first ever tour down under back in March 1977. To rouse the festivities, Ace Frehley, former lead guitarist for KISS and now solo artist in his own right, will open for Alice Cooper during his tour of the our southern state.

Alice Cooper was last in Australia in 2015 when he opened for Mötley Crüe during the latter’s final tour, and virtually stole the night. This tour will mark Alice Cooper’s thirteenth Australian tour overall, and across these dates, he will perform at Perth Arena on October 17, Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide on October 19, Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on October 20, Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on October 21, AIS Arena in Canberra on October 23, Newcastle Entertainment Centre on October 24 and Brisbane Convention Centre on October 25.

Alice Cooper’s currently working on his as-yet-untitled 27th studio album, again with long-time producer Bob Ezrin.
