According to Live Journal
Alice Cooper will be the subject of one episode of a new VH-1 show called 'Classic Decades Rock Live!'. The show appears to feature a classic band (the first show is The Doors) with guests performing with them with all the shows taking place at Trump Taj Mahal
in Atlantic City, NJ. No airdate has been set yet.
The series is the brainchild of music-industry veteran Barry Summers, the program's executive producer.
"I realized there's not a lot of live concerts on TV anymore, like the good, old-fashioned days of Don Kirschner's Rock Concert and Midnight Special," said Summers, referring to a couple of rock music programs of the pre-MTV era. "But my concept was to take the legends of rock 'n' roll, soul and R&B and team them up with some of today's hottest young artists who were influenced by classic rock. We wanted to do something different, something you couldn't find anywhere else. Anybody can shoot a band on tour."
The idea obviously struck a chord with the VH1 Classics folks.
"The first order is for 12 episodes, averaging about one new concert a month," said Summers. "They'll all be shot with seven cameras, in (high-definition) with Dolby 5.1 SurroundSound. Each will be a two-hour concert that will be edited down to one hour."
