I too can't wait to see it live...I've been very impressed with how it sounds on the various videos that have made there way to Youtube. Alice sounds great and the band sounds amazing...further I've liked both ways they have "Jason" interfere: last year when Kyler as a photographer was being a nuisance and Jason took him away. The other is this year's way...looks like some female is onstage (Sheryl???) and Jason comes out and grabs her and drags her away.

The Lynn show was definitely a good one. It certainly helps having an audience who actually wanted to be there!

Quote: I need to make special mention of the drummer. Clearly, the youngest and most inexperienced member of the team, he was quite the showman. He also got some great solo time to show off. More than any drummer I’ve seen with Alice, he seemed to be having the time of his life. This connected with me and it has stayed with me. In an interesting twist of fate, he turned out to be a sit-in drummer, and hometown hero – a young kid from Lynn, Massachusetts. I don’t know what the circumstances were that lead to this twist of fate, but I’m so thankful I got the be a part of it.

Umm, that was Glen Sobel. He's Alice's normal drummer, and not from Lynn ( that was a joke by Alice, it's whatever city they are playing that night). Glen is a seasoned pro and been playing professionally for over 20 years!
Orianthi is by far the youngest member of the current band ;)

As opposed to the audiences that are led in at gun point?

I suspect it's the latest penal innovation - concert punishments instead of jail terms. "I hereby sentence you to a year's-worth of Motley Crue concerts." Actually that one would definitely be appealed on the grounds of exceptional cruelty.

Great show in Morristown - probably one of my favorites I've seen. Did Roxie's Rock n' Roll Parking Lot and Chuck was there too - tonight was my 29th gig and I'd never met any member of Alice's band, so to meet two in one day was cool. Both great guys, very chatty and friendly.

Agree, it really was a great show last night.

I am always so amazed when I see Alice Cooper live, as after all these years I really can't recall a bad show or even an "off night".

I was so happy to hear "He's Back" played live.

It was a real treat to meet and talk with fellow Sickthings before and after the show.

Alice Cooper fans really are among the best of any band or artist that I can think of.

As always, the post show leaves me with anticipation of the next tour to roll through the NYC/NJ area.

~Peace, Love, Coop

Here is a review of the Friday show:

Alice Cooper knocks 'em dead in Kirby Center performancePublished: October 19, 2013

By Kristen Gaydos

Alice Cooper travels with snakes, guillotines and straightjackets - who would pass up a chance to see the Godfather of Shock Rock in action?

Not anyone at the F.M. Kirby Center. Alice Cooper "officially, completely, totally" sold out the place Friday, as staffers put it on the theater's Facebook page. More than 1,800 people came to rock out at the Friday evening concert in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

The Detroit rocker meant business with his "Raise the Dead" tour, slamming through about 15 songs in just the first hour as he took the screaming audience on a tour of his extensive catalogue. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer tackled songs from at least 10 albums - with a sneak peek of his covers of Hollywood Vampires' songs.

Cooper delved right into the album that brought him the most commercial success with his former band - 1973's "Billion Dollar Babies." He opened with "Hello Hooray," a Judy Collins cover, emerging amid heavy smoke in a red-and-black striped suit, a skeleton design on his back above his coattails.

With his signature screams and charisma, he led his band into "House of Fire" off the 1989 album "Trash," cowritten by fellow rocker Joan Jett. He fed off the audience's energy as they roared for one of his biggest hits, "No More Mr. Nice Guy," also off "Billion Dollar Babies." That song, along with "School's Out," reached new fans in 1993 when they appeared on the soundtracks for the movie "Dazed and Confused."

Cooper, born Vincent Furnier, started his 26 album streak with 1969's "Pretties for You." His most recent release, the 2011 concept album "Welcome 2 My Nightmare," calls back to his classic 1975 solo debut, "Welcome to My Nightmare." Both records take the listener on a journey through the nightmares of a child named Steven.

Cooper invited the audience into those nightmares with open arms - well, except for the giant snake wrapped around them. He switched to a bloodstained doctor's coat during, "Feed My Frankenstein," the song featured in the 1992 film "Wayne's World."

The audience howled for his signature showmanship as he gripped a riding crop in his teeth during "Department of Youth," threw confetti on them from a giant white coffee mug during "Caffeine," or tossed necklaces during "Dirty Diamonds." During the latter, he faked out one front-row audience member twice, dangling the strands above her before flipping them off to others. (Don't worry, he gave her the third one.)

As two men hustled Cooper into a straight jacket, he crooned - well, growled - the "Ballad of Dwight Fry." A sadistic nurse forced him into a guillotine, laughing as it beheaded Cooper and the band swung into "I Love the Dead" from "Billion Dollar Babies."

A serial killer carried off a woman who ran onstage during "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)," the lead single from his 1986 album "Constrictor," and the theme song of slasher film "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives."

Standing before headstones for Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jim Morrison and Keith Moon, Cooper gave the audience his take on hits like The Doors' "Break On Through (to the Other Side)" and The Beatles' "Revolution." Those covers will appear on his next album, scheduled for a spring 2014 release. On it, Cooper pays homage to the late rock stars, members of the so-called "Hollywood Vampires" of the early and mid-1970s.

Throughout the night, the band kept up the cohesive rocker vibe, whether dodging Cooper's whip or surrounding him while he struggled in a straightjacket. Australian guitarist Orianthi actually appeared on that stage once before, according to Kirby staffers - she opened for Adam Lambert back in 2010. Cooper followed her around stage as he growled the lyrics to "I'll Bite Your Face Off."

Cooper summed up the evening during "Welcome to my Nightmare," singing the line, "You know inside you feel right at home here."

Based on their fervent reaction, the crowd at the Kirby Center certainly did.

Great review! The writer actually did some research! However, the description of the show was awesome! The audience must have ate it up! :clap: Thanx!
