Spend The Night Opening NIght 30 Apr 2016

Last night was the first show of the 'Spend The NIght With Alice Cooper' tour 2016 in Biloxi, MS but there appear to have been few surprises. The setlist (see setlist section) has been changed with some cool additions, and there are different covers in there from last year, but sadly no big surprises. Of course all reports are that Alice and the band nailed it and put on a great show anyway! Video and photos are starting to appear on social media if you want to check them out.

Joining Alice were Neal Smith, Alex Lifeson of Rush, Dash Cooper and CO-OP, Kiss guitarist Tommy Thayer, Slash guitarist Frank Sidoris, Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine amongst others. There's video on facebook of Alice, Neal, Alex, Tommy and CO-OP playing 'Eighteen', as well as footage of 'Rock and Roll All Night' and 'Wild Thing'. Alice also sang 'Satisfaction' and 'Johnny B.

Dennis Dunaway and Paul Brenton put together an excellent 80 minute tour of Dennis' 'Snakes Museum' at the Chiller theater this weekend with Dennis telling stories and showing some of the amazing items they had on display. You can see it in the 'Snakes, Guillotines, Electric Chairs' facebook group but you may need to be a member to view the video. Alice, Michael and Kane Roberts were also at Chiller show and stopped by the museum.

Alice was on radio station WLVQ talking about Prince, Axl/DC, The Pudding, Vampires and the tour.

New Interviews 22 Apr 2016

Alice has been out on press duties the last few days including appearing on 'Today' although strangely it's been promoting last years 'Peter and The Wolf In Hollywood' project. He's also talking about it with AudioBoom, WZLX and WNYC.
He was also on 'The Sound In The Morning' on The Sound 100.3 (Alice shows up around 45 minutes into the show) and was in SiriusXM studios in New York for some reason I have yet to discover.
Blaze.com have a short video of Alice inviting members of the Evangelical Covenant Church to go to Phoenix for the denomination’s conference, Gather 2016, in June. Watching it you have to wonder if someone shouldn`t have held the cue cards a little lower...
