I remember Ryan Roxie telling us that He's Back would probably be played when we met him before one of the UK shows last fall. I'm pretty sure that was in Wolverhampton but I might be wrong on that. I also remember Caffeine wasn't on the set list in the first place, but again, I'm not sure when exactly it was added.

Just accept it: Alice is in the top of his class and school is in session.

Well since I have been unemployed for the last 13 months and am on unemployment, I couldn't go to any concert. If that makes me "sad", so be it. Now unless you are willing to pay for a ticket and travel expenses, I am not so sure you should be making blanket statements like that. You do know some people have legitimate reasons for not going and to just dismiss them as your statement does, doesn't seem quite fair.

I was able to save up $80 in a jar over the course of a year, just collecting pennies, nickels and dimes and quarters....without a job....and I still went. $50 for the ticket....and $40 for the shirt....for a grand total of $10 extra. I planned for it and made it happen.

And everyone's situation is different, GailsFriend. I do not know if you have children, health issues, an adult relative that you are caring for, etc. If so, then I commend your ability to save up in spite of lack of job and other challenges. If not, some people do, and that $80 would be gone in the blink of an eye.

That still doesn't mean our situations are the same. And I don't want to know your personal business. It was just a terribly insulting comment to make was my point.

Of course you did. That is why someday you will finally be selected as 'Alice Cooper Fan of the Year'. You are just one step ahead of all the others here.

I am happy to take the credit or blame for that.
To that I say:
>Back Door Man (cover) was dropped. - We are forever in your debt.

Brutal Planet was dropped after Wolverhampton - Well we all err from time to time.

That was nothing to do with me as I disagreed with that.

I learned the best from Alice,

"Move aside, mere drop of water, let the ocean pass.."

My Dad & I went to the show in Cleveland, and the deal was I drove, bought lunch the next day when we go to watch trains and paid for gas,then he'd buy my ticket. Well, we actually met up with a couple of our "friends". Mike, the singer for the Nightmare (Ohio's Alice Cooper Tribute Band) and one of the guys that helps out (play's Frankenstein, the Doctor and a few other parts in the show) So we got to hang with them and have a good time. Manson went on first... and let me be honest... I found Manson funny. He did some nice theatrics, but I couldn't understand him for the life of me. The riffs and instrumental were great though. But like I said, when all you hear is "RUH RUH RUH RUHHHHHAAAA!!! RUH RUHH... ! *knocks over one of the microphones* Its kind of entertaining. :rotfl: (NO OFFENSE TO ANY MANSON FAN! I MEAN NO DISRESPECT!) It isn't to say i didn't know the song... Beautiful people and dope show i couldn't understand! I've been to 3 Iron Maiden Concerts, an Alice Cooper concert (2 if you count him opening for Maiden) and a Kiss concert ($5) so I know it's not cause it was too loud.

As for Alice... As said before, over the years, and almost practically each tour, Cooper sounds different. This show... I don't know why but he sounded a lot younger! I loved each song and it was like Theater of Death all over again, the ultimate experience seeing your musical hero playing on stage. I don't wanna give away too much away to the show but I liked how the nurse didn't get strangled this time... Alice broke out of the straight jacket, but things didn't go as planned. Little changes like that are what make the big differences to the shows. Sure all Alice Cooper shows are like each other all the time. They're awesome! :8):

What is "stretching the BS"?....the idea that GNDM knows anything about Gailsfriend on a personal level....but, GNDM is welcome to come for dinner and talk with me. Guess what's for dinner?

And yet you still pass judgment on those that you don't know on a personal level. And By the way, that $90 wouldn't have even paid my electric bill for a single month last summer.

Hey Loomis! I will give you what you want: an apology that you were "sad" that you couldn't go to the Alice Cooper concert due to financial restraints....now admit, that you were "sad". For that, I am sorry. But, I have also made sacrifices to make ends meet. There is no personal judgement made here....actually, just the true statement: It's sad when you or anyone (myself included) can't go to an Alice Cooper concert. Period. :teach:
