REVIEW – Wichita, KS

1970s rock icon Alice Cooper opens the show for Motley Crue at Intrust Bank Arena on Saturday night.

Just as entertaining as Motley Crue, though, was opening act Alice Cooper.

The 66-year-old singer put on an hourlong set of rock-theater that included multiple costume changes, a giant dancing Frankenstein and a guillotine used to “behead” the singer onstage. (He returned, head attached, for the next song.)

He took the stage in a black-and-red-striped tuxedo with tails, black makeup circling his eyes, and delivered “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Welcome to My Nightmare” and “Feed My Frankenstein.”

He wore a boa constrictor, a straitjacket and a bloody medical coat. The stage was decorated with scary clown faces and a stroller full of baby dolls without their bodies. The set was frightening, fascinating and funny all at once.

Cooper, who finished his set by filling the stage with bubbles and performing “School’s Out,” had an impressive band with three guitarists, including female guitarist Nita Strauss, who just joined Cooper’s band and is hard not to watch.

    Alice Cooper and his killer band stole the show. I was so amazed. It was the best show that I have ever seen. The Wichita show was awesome. Alice brought the house down. I hope to catch another show in Oklahoma City or Omaha. Well done Alice. I would love to see you and Beasto Blanco tour.
