It's all been a little quiet this week since the last show announcements but here's a couple of things worth reporting:
Alice and Shep are set to be keynote speakers at 'Pollstar Live 2017!' which takes place in Los Angeles between January 31st and February 2nd, and it looks like they will appear on February 1st. The title of their event is "Shep Gordon and Alice Cooper: A 47 Year Conversation" so sounds like a repeat of the Bootleg Theater event a few weeks ago. The industry event is aimed at the Concert industry.
Epiphone Guitars feature Ryan Roxie and the Epiphone guitars he's been using on stage this past year. Expect more from this partnership in the coming year.
Neal Smith's movie "Desolation Angeles/Rise of the BOAS" gets it's world premiere on December 28th at the Bijou Theatre (275 Fairfield Ave.) in Bridgeport, CT. Admission free although a donation is encouraged. Quote: Smith wrote the title song for the film and plays a ruthless Russian mob boss in a full-length black-and-white production based on morality issues rooted in classical Greek mythology."
Steve and Karen Hunter have created a new 'GoFundMe' page where you can pledge your support for Steve's forthcoming new album, entitled 'Before The Lights Go Out'. The campaign features many of the usual incentives, as well as a few extra special ones like Tommy Henriksen's stage pants, and a signed Jason Becker guitar pedal!

To further the fund raising (which also helps with Steve's bills now he can no longer tour or work without assistance) there is an Ebay auction for a one-of-a-kind 'Loic Le Pape Mosteel J.Ramone tribute guitar'. The instrument has been donated by Tommy Henriksen, who played it at this years Christmas Pudding show, and is signed by many of the guests at that show including Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, Sammy Hagar, Tommy Henriksen, and Bob Ezrin, as well as Steve himself. The auction has about a day to run so be quick if you are interested!
