Fans of rock icon Alice Cooper know there are some aspects to his live shows that they can expect, including a hard rocking performance of horror theatrics; however, following Alice Cooper’s customary execution via guillotine at his recent Nashville concert on May 14th, fans were treated to something rarely seen since 1975. The stage went dark, and the original band, including bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith reunited to perform five classic songs with Alice. This followed the recent announcement that his forthcoming album –
Paranormal, out July 28th on earMUSIC Рwill include two new recordings featuring the original line-up.

Joined by current band member Ryan Roxie filling in for the late Glen Buxton on guitar, the band ripped through “I’m 18,” “No More Mr Nice Guy,” “Muscle of Love,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and then closed with “School’s Out,” bringing back current band members drummer Glen Sobel, bassist Chuck Garric, and guitarists Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen for a grande finale.

The following day, the original band was honored by The Music Business Association at their annual convention, with an award for their historic achievements.¬† The award was presented to them by Bob Ezrin, who produced their iconic albums¬†Love It To Death, Killer, School’s Out, and¬†Billion Dollar Babies¬†as well as many subsequent solo Alice Cooper albums, including the forthcoming¬†Paranormal.

Paranormal¬†features two songs written and recorded with original members – Alice, Dennis, Neal and Michael, as well as guest appearances by ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover. The first single, “Paranoic Personality” will be released¬†Friday, June 9th.

Alice Cooper is on tour throughout the 2017. Full North American tour dates below.
