Though my head might still be spinning from this past weekends NY Comic Con, I managed to shake off the dizzying experience with some coffee in order to share the very recently announced upcoming tour by the legendary Alice Cooper. Take a look below.
The Press Release:
Alice Cooper has announced his early 2018 tour plans. The legendary rocker will hit the road for a North American trek, dubbed “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper.” The tour kicks off on March 1 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and runs through March 29 in Indianapolis.
Further information about all Alice Cooper tour dates is here (http://www.alicecooper.com/tour-dates/) .
Cooper released Paranormal, his first album in six years and 27th overall, via earMUSIC in August. Paranormal features special guests like U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., who plays on 9 of the 12 new songs; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; Deep Purple’s Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members.
Upon release, Paranormal climbed the iTunes rock charts, landing at #1 in 12 countries and the Top 5 in 20 countries.
Press praise for Paranormal is as follows:
“He can still growl out a tune with bile in his throat and get almost seductive if the songs calls for it.” — Consequence of Sound
“…true to his legacy…” — Rolling Stone
“Sharpen up the guillotine, folks; he ain’t done yet.” — Paste
“…full of all the joy and vigor of those good old days.” — Under the Radar

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I am a slight bit bummed about no proper NYC date for the Cooper Clan but maybe he will indulge us at a later time. March is still pretty far away so I will hope for additional dates on this run. I love seeing Alice in concert even though its been a few years since I have managed to do so. Alright, now its time for me to get to all of the posting of the NY Comic Con images and there are a LOT of those. I will be starting with our Official Instagram if you should want to take a look at all the wonderful Cosplayers that we encountered along the four day experience. You can also let me know what you think of this new tour down in the comments section below.
