Welcome To My Nightmare

Click for alternate coverThe 'Welcome To My Nightmare' concert film (not to be confused with `The Nightmare` TV special) was professionally filmed at Wembley Empire Pool (now Wembley Arena) on 11th-12th September 1975 for release in cinemas and eventual video release. It features the majority of the show although certain tracks aren`t in the correct order.

This video has been re-released several times over the years with differing covers and on April 20th, 1999 Rhino released a special DVD of the film:

LOS ANGELES - Rhino Home Video courageously releases one of the most extravagant rock shows ever filmed with the April 20 DVD and VHS release of Alice Cooper's "Welcome To My Nightmare". The king of shock rock unfurls his nightmarish illusions in this legendary performance originally filmed for theatrical release before a live sold-out audience at Wembley in London on September 11-12, 1975.

This concert for the platinum-selling album gets the full Rhino treatment on a special DVD, featuring an alternate commentary track recorded by Alice himself, a new never-before-seen interview, and a specially created Alice Cooper memorabilia and trivia game. Both the VHS and DVD programs are completely remastered from the original film elements and newly repackaged utilizing the original album art.

Alice Cooper was the first artist to take rock to shockingly theatrical extremes. The Welcome To My Nightmare show, featuring rock's famed guitar duo of Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner, offers up plenty of ghoulish images, including dancing skeletons, giant black widow spiders, graveyards, a nine foot tall Cyclops, and a special narrative appearance from fellow horror-meister, Vincent Price, and a finale with Alice's ground-breaking "magic" movie screen that "comes to life"! Of course, Cooper hits and classics are showcased including I'm Eighteen, School's Out, Only Women Bleed, No More Mr. Nice Guy and the trademark title track.

There is also a UK DVD release on Eagle Rock but this version DOES NOT have any of the features of the Rhino Version. Avoid it.
