Alice Cooper Tickets - Alice Cooper Tour Dates

Alice Cooper Schedule

Known as the Godfather of Shock Rock, singer Alice Cooper rose to fame in the '70s, flabbergasting audiences with his lurid, often ghastly stage shows.

Alice Cooper loved to tour but earned an unsavory reputation wherever he went. His theatrical stunts and radical looks certainly caused an upheaval but created a tremendous fan base at the same time!

These days, Cooper has mellowed maybe just a little bit but still puts on a hell of a show! To find out where he is headed next, make sure you check out StubHub beforehand.

Alice Cooper Background

The son of a pastor, Vincent Damon Furnier, aka Alice Cooper, was born in Detroit. When he was 12 years old, his family relocated to California and eventually to Arizona.

Cooper started a love affair with music early on and in high school he founded his first rock band. The group was initially dubbed the Earwigs and eventually became the Spiders. They covered the rock greats of the day like the Who, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

After sapping the local club scene, the band decided to relocate to L.A., where like many musicians, hoped to make the big time. At this point, the band had already crafted a sound brimming with angst, which critics at first despised. But with Cooper at the helm, the band's music drew the attention of Frank Zappa. Zappa signed the young Cooper on to a contract.

In 1969, the group, which had now renamed their band Alice Cooper, debuted its first album called Pretties for You. The album Easy Action arrived a year later.

Almost overnight, Alice Cooper garnered a reputation for its over-the-top, extreme stage performances. One story that is still most associated with Alice Cooper's outrageous stage antics was of a fan throwing a live chicken on to the stage. As the story goes, Cooper picked up the chicken and threw it into the air. When it came down into the crowd, the chicken was allegedly ripped to shreds. Another version of the story claims that Cooper killed the chicken himself and then consumed its blood.

It was not uncommon for Alice Cooper to have electric chairs and fake guillotines as props for their live shows. Alice Cooper additionally included theatrics like "killing" dolls.

Warner Bros. inked a deal with Alice Cooper, the band, in 1971. Over the span of several years, the band produced a string of hits, such as School's Out (1972); Killer (1972); Billion Dollar Babies (1973); and Muscle of Love (1974).

When Alice Cooper left the band in 1974, he took the name with him. In 1975, he came out with his debut solo album, Welcome to My Nightmare. The album spawned commercial success and praise, as did his 1976 album, Alice Cooper Goes to Hell.

But his personal life was a mess. Drugs and fatigue landed him in a New York sanatorium. Cooper eventually became a born-again Christian and even became obsessed with golf.

His music, however, did not experience the same type of comeback. His albums from 1981 and 1982 weren't his best works. But in 1989, his album Trash found its way back to the charts.

Cooper has experienced a wide range of successes since then that have included film credits and his well-received syndicated radio show, Nights With Alice Cooper.

In 2006, Cooper was presented with the Living Legend award at the Classic Rock and Roll of Honor event. In December of that same year, he and the original band members reunited to perform six tunes at Christmas Pudding, Cooper's annual charity event.

Five years later, Cooper and his former bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Alice Cooper Trivia
