Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.


BC Show Announced 31 Aug 2005

A new show has been announced for October 25th at The Sunwave Centre in Salmon Arm, BC. Normal priced tickets are on sale as well as Fanfire packages.

The Alice Cooper Photo book by Wolfgang Heilemann first mentioned late last year is finally out. It's listed on AmazonUK but they haven't updated their page yet to show it as finally available. However you can order it direct in the UK here and the USA here. I haven't seen a copy yet but it looks very interesting with lots of rare pics. They accept Paypal and Credit Cards and claim to ship on payment.
(thanks Darren)

More on Biloxi 30 Aug 2005

Latest news indicates the Hard Rock Casino sustained 50-75% damage and will need to be completely rebuilt. Reportedly, the guitar out front, said to be the "worlds largest", still stands. The casino's sit on barges in the gulf. More than one now rests in downtown Biloxi. 285,000 without power. 80 dead. Most areas still "unreachable."

Biloxi Problems 30 Aug 2005

Reports are reaching me that the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino in Biloxi, where Alice Cooper was scheduled to play on October 2nd, has been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina which is currently causing destruction in the area. According to a local news item the venue will be rebuilt next year. This obviously means that Alice's show will have to be rescheduled or canceled. More info if/when I get it.
