(thanks Terje)

As reported yesterday Alice`s radio show is coming to the UK on [link=]Virgin Classic Rock, which seems to be a digital and internet station. The show starts on June 27th and runs weeknights from 6pm-10pm.

[link=]The Sydney Morning Herald has a review of the Elmore Theater show including a cool pic of Alice onstage. Kind of a mixed review, with a few of the normal lazy journalistic errors ('Be My Frankenstein'??).

There is now a review, by me for what its worth, of the new 'Dirty Diamonds' album up in the reviews section. Lots of spoilers so don't read if you don't wanna know.

[link=]Gettyimage have some great photos up now from the Sydney show. You can see large versions by cliking on the thumbnails but they are watermarked. Just do a search for "Alice Cooper" and they'll come up.

Lastly: Alice's interview with Brian May on last nights radio show is now online at [link=]

Setlist for last nights show was the same as Newcastle. See the forum for reports and the first report of a VIP package and what happens.

Update: The "Sweden Golf" magazine interview mentioned a while back is now online [link=]here. It's in a .PDF file so you`ll need to have the software to read it, and in Swedish obviously, but there are a few cool pics.

First Tour Review
The first tour review is up on the Forum. Thanks Chris! Don't look if you want to avoid spoilers, its packed with them!! Note: I kinda have a feeling that when the show hits Europe it will be slightly different. Hopefully more new tracks and I *believe* a couple of extra theatrics, but I`m only guessing so don't hang me!

Also: Small story at [link=,10221,15682535-10431,00.html]Entertainment about Alice's shopping trip the other day in Australia. Quote:
"Those who refer to Alice Cooper as a rock dinosaur would have had a chuckle had they seen him doing a spot of shopping at the weekend. When the 57-year-old rocker visited the Diesel store in Sydney's Paddington on Saturday with his 24-year-old daughter Calico, he was busily munching on a dinosaur-shaped donut the shop was giving away to customers during its "prehistoric sale". Alice was apparently about as far removed as could be from his trademark song No More Mr Nice Guy, one of the store's staff told Confidential yesterday. "You could tell he was a rocker," the salesgirl said. "But he was lovely ... a really nice guy."

Also: STUK is having a GARAGE SALE!! Yup, I'm having a clean out here and there's now a page in the store (link on left) with some stuff. 99% is NOT Alice Cooper related but as we have such a diverse crowd of fans coming here there maybe something of interest. LOTS more will be added. Money is going to the "Get STUK to Paris" Fund!!!

Quick Roundup
A few things are coming through today now that Alice is downunder and of course tonight is the first show of the tour!!

Firstly, Alice was on "Enough Rope" last night, the Australian TV show. Thanks to Nick for his timely report we know that he was on for about 30 minutes and it went very well! Keep an eye [link=]This site for a possible transcript of the show appearing in the near future.

[link=,10221,15670006-7484,00.html]Entertainment News(AUS) have a short news story and interview. Unfortunatly the call the album "Diamond Dogs"... Oh dear. We`re trying to get them to correct it. (Thanks Des)

Also last night Alice was on "The Great Outdoors", a travel show which this week featured Phoenix, AZ. Thanks to Murray for reporting "They showed a few short clips from Brutal Planet (Schools Out and Poison) and a short clip from WTMN (Department of Youth). The part of the story involving Alice was mainly filmed at Cooperstown and Bank One BallPark. The presenter referred to Alice as the godfather of Shock Rock and mentioned the fact that Alice has outlived a great many other artists. I felt for those people watching that only know the rumours about Alice would have enjoyed the segment.
They ended the segment by advertising Alice's Australian tour dates"

Ross has spotted a story in todays australian press that Alice will be appearing and possibly performing at the 'Golden Stave Awards' in Sydney , this Friday . (after the show presumably). This appears to be an industry function. More info if I get it.

Think that's it for now. More later when I have time to go through all the emails pouring in!! And hopefully tomorrow or soon after... the first setlist and review of the 2005 World Tour!!

Extra: XM radio are re-airing the 'Then...Again...Live! Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits' show tonight at 6pm ET. Check it out at [link=] It will air on the XM Live, Deep Tracks, Top Tracks, and Boneyard channels.

Morning Roundup
Quick round up of a few things I didn't have time to add yesterday:

First up, everyone in Melbourne, Australia should head down to the shops and buy yourself a copy of the Herald-Sun for TWO pieces on Alice. One small piece with a pic which promotes his upcoming appearance on the 'Great Outdoors' TV show on the 20th, and another larger piece in the Entertainment section. For those outside Oz I should think [link=,10221,15630652-7484,00.html]this is one of the articles.
(thanks Nick)

There's a small quote from Alice [link=,10221,15629869-10431,00.html]here taken from "the Great Outdoors" show.

Also: Its now confirmed the Alice will be on "The Enough Rope" show, reported last week, in Australia on Monday night 20th June 2005 at 9.30 on ABC TV.
There's a radio interview turned up [link=]here at Metal express. It's from June 2004 but still cool.

Live in Phoenix This Saturday
Alice and the band will play a short show THIS saturday at Cooperstown in Phoenix right after the Diamondbacks game. It'll be a short show (30 mins plus) but unmissable if you`re in the area. Possible signing session afterwards.

Also: According to various sources The film 'Rock School' has been pulled from theater release after just one weekend. Sources suggest that after a very light box office, Newmarket Films opted to cancel the remaining nationwide openings with no word about whether they'll be rescheduled. "Rock School" is about the Paul Green School of Rock in Philadelphia, where students high school-aged and younger learn to play rock music in a structured setting. Alice Cooper makes a cameo appearance, performing his hit "School's Out" with some of the students as the end credits roll.
A DVD release will still presumably appear in the future.

Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper
"Good to see you again, Alice Cooper", the MOVIE of the Billion Dollar Babies tour in 1973 is tentatively scheduled for September 12th in the UK, presumably also thereabouts for USA. It's the real thing this time, not a mistake on Netflicks as before, although as always the date may change.
More details as I get them.

Another Preview
Hot on the trail of Friday nights preview, tonight we heard "Run Down The Devil" from "Dirty Diamonds". This is the track Ryan refered to a few weeks back as being kinda Brutal Planet-ish I think. Heavier then much of what we've heard so far from the album.
Posted on 07 Jun 2005 by Si

Uncut Magazine
As mentioned briefly the other day [link=]Uncut Magazine (UK) has an interview with Alice in the new issue (cover left). In it he talks about the chicken incident again, being Vincent Furnier and carrying a boa constrictor through customs. Worth checking out! It's the July issue you want.
Posted on 06 Jun 2005 by Si
Small items
[link=] have a short quote from Alice about the new album. He says "I wanted the sound of a classic Stones album. When I listen to the Stones or the Yardbirds, there are occasional mistakes going on. Not major mistakes, but you just can't beat the feel of those records. I believe you can cook all the juice right out of a song by recording it too much." They also have a small pic of the cover.

Also: UK newspaper the Daily Express has a short Alice mention today. It goes like this:
"ALICE COOPER has a macabre new act up his spandex sleeve for his world tour this summer. In the past, the climax of the 57-year-old rocker's show has been to impale the plastic babies on cutlasses while chopping off the head of a lifesize model of pop princess Britney Spears with a 30ft-hight guillotine. Now, the perma-kohled singer, whose hits include Schools Out and No More Mister Nice Guy, has a new victim in mind. "This year, I'm thinking of cutting Paris Hilton's head off. That'll be fun," he beams, "or maybe I'll take all of the American Idol contestants, kill them off one by one and mount their heads on sticks." Simon Cowell, you've been warned.'"
There's also a small pic.
(Thanks Tim)

Sunday Times
There is apparently some Alice Cooper content in todays Sunday Times magazine in an article about Marvel Comics. I haven't seen it yet so can't be more specific, but I figured it better to mention it so people still have time to check it out before it's too late.

New Mini-Compilation
Rhino appear to have released five songs as part of a digital download of old material on May 25th in the USA. Called 'Rhino: Hi Five', the five tracks are 'School's Out', No More Mr Nice Guy'. 'Elected', 'Billion Dollar Babies' and 'Under My Wheels'.
Thanks to Dave who has sent me the following info on this:
"The music on Hi-Five are five songs that are digital downloads at
various sites that feature that sort of thing including Yahoo. They sell
at around $3.61 for all the songs. Rhino is bundling a lot of different
artists and is releasing them in batches on a monthly basis since March."
So basically the "Take Five" banner is a banner under which these digital downloads are being promoted.
