Alice Cooper‘s Aug. 3, 2013, concert at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany, will soon be available for mass consumption. ‘Raise the Dead – Live From Wacken’ will be released on Oct. 21 as a CD and DVD combo.
Featuring 22 songs — including covers of the Doors‘ ‘Break on Through,’ the Who‘s ‘My Generation’ and Pink Floyd‘s ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ — the DVD spotlights Cooper’s legendary stage show, complete with the famous guillotine. In the above video released to promote ‘Raise the Dead,’ Cooper describes how the concert was conceived to be a three-act musical, with equal parts comedy and horror.
“We’re not going there to say, ‘Gee, I hope you like us tonight,’” Cooper says. “We’re going there with the attitude of grabbing ‘em by the throat and not letting ‘em go.”
‘Raise the Dead – Live from Wacken’ is the first offering of a new series comprised of performances from the Wacken Festival. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wacken Foundation, whose goal is to supporting the growth of new hard rock and heavy metal bands.

Alice Cooper announced on twitter via @realalicecooper that he has listed the American Flag t-shirt that he wore when he took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on 8/20/2014 on stage in front of thousands of fans. This is a stage shirt that he has worn during hundreds of concerts over the past few years all over the world.
The winner can choose to have the shirt autographed by Alice or have a 4×6 photo personalized and signed by Alice, or both!
100% of the proceeds will be given directly to ALS Association and Alice Cooper will ship this shirt world wide for free.
The shirt is tattered and cut in places and is very clearly worn. This is a one of a kind item, an extremely rare opportunity for a collector to acquire a legitimate piece of Rock N Roll with a traceable and very public history! Check out the tweet below:
Today, on their day off outside of Washington, DC, the Alice Cooper band answered the many calls for them to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise funds and awareness to battle ALS. The band each made individual donations to alsa.org, and encourage others to do the same!
Alice Cooper accepted the challenge last night in Virginia Beach, VA where he challenged Motley Crue and Johnny Depp. Motley Crue immediately accepted and participated following their own show and vowing to donate $10K to the cause. Time will tell if Johnny Depp accepts the challenge!
Alice Cooper accepted Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge live in front of a sold out audience tonight, 8/20/14 in Virginia Beach! Alice called out his fellow tour mates Motley Crue and friend Johnny Depp!
Alice also offered to auction his American Flag stage shirt and his post ice bath robe to benefit ALSA.org! Will Motley Crue and Johnny Depp accept the challenge?
