Alice Cooper Brings Nightmare Home to Phoenix, Party to Cooperstown

Alice Cooper played to a sold out crowd at Ak-Chin Pavilion in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ Saturday night.  The rare Phoenix performance marked the first time that Alice has actually performed a full show in the city in a number of years.  Alice brought the house down with an abbreviated 55 Minute set as special guest on Motley Crue’s final tour.  The show was packed with the theatrical showmanship that Alice Cooper is world famous for including goons, killing machines, monsters and of course the slithering snake.

But that wasn’t all Alice had up his sleeve on Saturday night.  Alice took his band and crew down to Alice Cooperstown in downtown Phoenix for an official after-party presented by his host station in Phoenix 100.7 KSLX.  The party was in full swing by 10:30 with about 300 people out on the patio listening to KSLX’s own Pete Cummings Band perform rock n roll classics while Alice and his band mingled and ate.  Then around 11:30 Alice’s band suddenly took over the stage and on stepped Alice Cooper himself for a surprise performance.

Alice and the band played some of his own classics as well as some covers from the “Raise The Dead” portion of the Alice’s show of the same name, where Alice pays tribute to his fallen friends Jimmy Hendrix, John Lennon, Keith Moon and Jim Morrison.  Included in this set were Break On Through, My Revolution, Foxy Lady, Under My Wheels, Eighteen and My Generation and School’s Out.  Alice was joined by his son Dash on the songs Under My Wheels and Eighteen.

It was a great night for Alice fans and a great night to be at Alice Cooperstown!
