For anyone considering this show, it's a brand new venue that's very similar to the LC Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio right in the heart of the Pittsburgh North Shore between the two newer stadiums. There also are plenty of new bars/restaurants and hotels in this area too.

Interestingly, they're selling a 4-pack for this show which includes general admission tickets for the Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top and Styx shows for the unbelievable price of $76.40 total.

hey old timers!
I've been away for so long, but I just got word of this show and had to come back to CHEER! Alice is finally coming back to me after seven long years. I'm blissfully happy!

I'll be traveling from New Jersey for this one.

I lived in Cranberry Twp. (just north of Pittsburgh) and still have family there, good reason for a visit.

Hope to see you there!

Was a great show, very fun atmosphere. We were over on Damon's side on the barrier, and got his setlist. Had a lot of fun comparing it to my Damon setlist from Hamilton this year; where as Hamilton had just one-or-two word cues for songs, tonight's had full song titles, as well as notes on which guitars to use. Is It My Body was inexplicably cut, but Hey Stoopid was a great addition from the early shows of the tour. They played Fire also tonight, first time in...over a month I think? Sorry I can't post a more concise review now, but I'm exhausted after the 4 and a half hour drive home!

A fantastic show, we were dead center on the barrier. Nothing beats up front for AC.

Got a Terrible Towel that Chuck threw mid-show (in addition to the one he had hanging off him). He got a kick out of me waiving and kept encouraging me to do so throughout the show.

Alice threw his 3rd cane directly to me and I caught it. The guy next to me got a hand on it and then tried his best take it from me. Uh-uh. Security ended up stepping in and told him it was mine. I thanked the security guy after the show for doing the right thing.

Great fun to see a show in the shadow of Heinz Field. Alice even got into the Steeler spirit donning a James Harrison Steeler jersey and waiving a terrible towel at the end of the show... then giving a big "Go Steelers". Nice!

Total fricken blast.

They played that earlier this week when I saw them, both on Tuesday and Thursday. Seems to be a regular setlist inclusion, at the moment.

Seems "Is It My Body" has been dropped... didn't even notice that in Akron but don't think it was played.

No snake unlike the first show of the tour I saw.

Great job catching the cane...very happy for you, the cane going to a true fan!

I've got picks, a drum head, dollar bills, "dirty diamonds" and have come close on a cane a few times.

I'm 4th row Monday, Second on Saturday and front row Sunday...so maybe, I'll be reporting some good news of my own soon! :)

Sounds like a great time...again, very happy for you!

True, "Is It My Body" was not played in Akron or Grand Rapids.

The snake is not a change....technically. It is currently not on stage as it recently started shedding, and is sensitive during this process. As soon as that is done, it'll be back. :)
