Didn't you get that there was a REASON I didn't post the set list here, but on the setlists page instead?
There are people going to the show who don't WANT to know in advance... That's out the window now.

alice coopers FB or the sick things FB page? Im not finding it anywhere!
On facebook do a search for "Alice Cooper" then go to "videos" (rather than any particular page) then filter to videos posted today or last 24hours

The version of Steven is excellent, plus the baby was a great piece of theatre. From the videos posted and the setlist, I have to say I am feeling impatient for October to arrive!

Some clips on youtube now for those without facebook.

I have to say Steven is awesome. Stage reminds me of Alice of the 80s, This is going to be awesome.

Ticketing sorted out (in UK anyway), proper new stage design and some awesome songs in the set...can't wait. Had I turned my nose up at this because it has been the same show for years I would be gutted if tickets had now sold out.



On a side note I hope they are packing some WD40 for that guillotine :rotfl:

I thought he had said that one song won't ever be played live again? Not that I am complaining.

Now it's up for the setlist-is-always-the-same's to go and buy their tickets and, put their money where their mouths have been for years and years.

I **** love it. Love it.

I think FMF works great as an opener...it is a song I've always thought suffers a bit live. It possibly sounds the best I have ever heard it, perhaps because everyone's fresh on stage so able to push there all into it?

Is this the first time the straightjacket's been used for another song than Dwight Fry?

No it isn't. It's been used in 1991 for Wind up toy.

Yeah but besides that look how great the new setlist is with so many new additions to it and rarities, I can look beyond a 1 minute version of a pink Floyd cover, have you checked out the setlist even? It's great! !

The set list is great and the castle stage set really adds a lot to the look and feel of the show.

2nd row center last night in Columbus...that is one of the best productions I've ever seen from the Master...the castle really is an impressive set...further so many rare and deep cuts...seeing Roses on white lace AT LAST was the supreme highlight...RYFAY is my favorite...i wont spoil any of the theatrics....but wow wow wow!!! My 35th Alice show was a memorable one and the first of 5 shows this year
