"After dinner, the Peacemakers (local band from Phoenix) performed as backing band for Alice. Alice performed Jailhouse Rock and No More Mr. Nice Guy. Then band then played a couple of modern alternative cover tunes without Alice, then at least one of their originals. Alice came back out with Doug Clifford of Credence Clearwater Revival fame on drums and David Cassidy on co-vocals to do CCR's "Born on the Bayou," Everything was completely ad-libbed and unrehearsed from this point on. The band and/or Alice were calling songs out. The band quickly figured out the chords and played. The order went something like this: "Stuck in the Middle" (Beatles, maybe the wrong title?), "Eighteen," "Honky Tonk Woman" (Stones), "Baba O'Reilly"(the Who), "Proud Mary" (CCR). They ended on a blues tune--title doesn't come to mind".

Cooper will perform a full set with his touring band. As the clock strikes midnight and guests unmask, Alice Cooper will personally ring in the New Year and usher in the new century. Who knows, there may be a few surprise guests that jam with Alice.

Tickets are priced at $*** each and may be purchased via all major credit cards. Space at this elaborate party is limited to 300 people and is based on first come first served basis. Included in the price of the ticket, will be a gourmet feast, champagne bar, decadent desserts, keepsake gift, party favors and much more.
Tickets do not include tax and/or gratuity.


"Well, as suspected New Year's Eve at Cooper'stown was incredible. Many were dressed up and wore masquerade masks and some did not. Everyone who attended received an autographed laminated pass, a glass Cooper'stown Millennium Masquerade champagne flute and other small knick-knacks. During the course of the evening Alice walked around to each table and took pictures and signed autographs. Some people got to eat dinner, while others went hungry. The whole band, with their guests, ate in the restaurant and mingled with the fans.

Show time was around 11:15 or so. All 300+ fans watched on as Alice and Co. cranked out the following songs:

Hello Hooray
Sideshow
Billion Dollar Babies
No More Mr. Nice Guy
Be My Lover
Lost in USA
Is It My Body
I'm Eighteen
From The Inside
Only Women Bleed
Steven
Poison
Cold Ethyl

Y2K Countdown

Auld Lang Syne
Halo of Flies
School's Out

Alice came out in a grey tophat and a silver sequined suit for School's Out. During the song, he tossed the hat and tried on a few hats from the audience until he settled on a white tophat with 2000 in big letters on the front. Alice then belted out the following covers:

Brown Sugar
Start Me Up
Honky Tonk Woman
Saw Her Standing There
Can't Buy Me Love
Drive My Car
Revolution

Alice was very talkative throughout the tribute covers. During the Stones tunes, he said "When we started out as the Spiders, about 100 years ago, we did songs like these for four hours a night." He also dedicated a Beatles tune to "George in the hospital" referring to the former Beatle who had been attacked and stabbed a few days earlier.

Alice then left the stage and came back with an outrageously huge Elvis wig on. He paid tribute with these songs:

Jailhouse Rock
All Shook Up

Then ended the set with:

Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)
Under My Wheels

After the show some were given backstage passes and were invited to a 'meet n greet' upstairs. Alice took more pictures and signed more stuff. Sheryl and members of her family were there and all were very pleasant to talk with, as was Ryan Roxie's mother.

After 2:00 people were kicked out and everyone went home.
