Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Superbowl News 16 Jan 2008

A few days ago a new blog post was added to the official Alice Cooper Myspace page. Of note was the news that Alice will be playing shows in New Zealand (already announced), Australia and Japan around Easter time and the suggestion that it will be worth fans watching for Alice content during this years Superbowl. It appears this will be an appearance in an advert for 'Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire Unit' to be shown during the game. Quote: "Bridgestone, which is also sponsoring the game's halftime show, had its agency come up with concepts for 140 different commercials, which Bridgestone narrowed down to three now being produced. The tire maker will select two spots to air during the game. The company says it is using ad formulas that have worked for other companies in the past: animals, humor and celebrities -- in this case, Alice Cooper and Richard Simmons.
"The 'Tucson Citizen Editorial Board' has an article questioning why Alice isn't involved in this years famous Superbowl half time show, being that is happening in Arizona, his home State.

In related news Dennis will also be appearing with Albert and Joe Bouchard in a new project called 'Blue Coupe'. Albert and Joe of course were members of Blue Oyster Cult throughout their classic years. The band will be playing 'Classic Hits' so I'm sure we can expect some familiar tunes. The first show will be January 19 at Pub 715, South Rte. 715, South Reeders, Pennsylvania.

Alice should be at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic tournament about now and it will be shown on the Golf Channel in the USA.
