is there any sort of official thing being done? i thought some sort of logo for the tour at least would be done. would be nice if some decent memoribilia was produced rather than just another compilation CD w/ the same old tracks on, after all there's no many acts that last half a century.

A bloody, dismembered chicken refrigerator magnet would be nice.

Alice's merch leaves a lot to be desired... At the Birmingham show after seeing the surviving original band I was in a highly emotional state and would have bought virtually anything as a souvinir of the occasion. But the Tour T shirt with the Killer tour poster was so horribly badly done that I still couldn't pull the trigger. No original band poster, NO PROGRAM??!!
I ended up with a bandana as at least it featured the opening curtain image - though I'll never like that 'Constrictor' logo. The original Pacific Eye and Ear art has so many wonderful, transferable elements - I'm a designer for (mostly) music and I'd put an amazing range together at no charge! It wouldn't exactly be hard - I don't get it...

well i thought a lot of the merch had some great designs, but at glasgow they were woefully undersupplied and didn't get any refills, resulting in the first gig in about 35 years that i've walked out w/out a T-shirt >:-(
ended up getting one online, but still haven't found the one i wanted, which now seems to have been discontinued.

I couldn't believe how bad the merchandising was at the Glasgow gig!!! I wasn't tempted into anything, there are far better t'shirts in the shop at the Tron! And don't get me started on the prices! And, no programme!!!!

The 'tron' is an area of Glasgow where there is a lot of small independent shops, quite a few music and art shops, there is one in particular which sells rock t-shirts, they have a good selection of Alice shirts from various concerts.

The last tour with a tour book (programme) was the Dragontown tour in 2002. I don't count the fold-out poster from the 2009, but the point is that there hasn't been one for many years now.

We are almost 1/4 of the way through the year, and this thread seems to be the only one mentioning any of it. 3 days from now is the anniversary of their first appearance as Alice, for Pete's sake...

Perhaps this ain't the year for any of this. Maybe they aren't ever going to mention it at all? This wouldn't be the first time that an artist looked past their history....

From the news page - at least Martin Popoff noticed... Can't say that this tempts me, though. Nothing against the author, but if the cover is any indication, the "photos" inside are probably "snapshots" at best. Let's hope that we get some solid stuff from the official side of things. I am revving up my wallet in anticipation.

I heard from Alice in an interview talking about the upcoming UK Tour it's gonna be a 50th anniversary celebration of his career, and he said ir will be a "Total Alice Extravaganza "also saying he'll play songs from albums people wouldn't expect him to play from. That's quite exciting, right, jellys??

WHERE and WHEN did you hear this? Why would Mr. Cooper have a 50th Anniversary Celebration in October of 2019? The BANDS' first show, under the Alice Cooper name occurred in March of 1968 - 51 years and some 7 months from his planned UK concerts this year. LOL. Don't tell...Mr. Cooper is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Fillmore West show he (AND THE BAND) did with Ike and Tina Turner back in October of 1969.
50th Anniversary show in the UK? I sure would like to see and hear that interview you mentioned. Especially after ''someone'' stiffed the original band back in 2018 over a true anniversary show. :x
