Alice Cooper announced a headlining North American tour behind his 27th studio album, 2017's Paranormal. The summer trek, dubbed "A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper," launches August 3rd at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wisconsin and wraps September 7th at the York Fair in York, Pennsylvania.
Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley will join as a special guest for two shows: August 10th in Las Vegas and August 12th in Los Angeles. Further information including ticket sale dates and VIP package details is available on Cooper's website.
The hard rock icon also recruited several guest performers from Paranormal for the tour, such as his "classic" backing band (drummer Neal Smith, bassist Dennis Dunaway and guitarist Michael Bruce), U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover and ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons.
Last year, Cooper mused about the challenges and joys of touring in an interview with Rolling Stone. "Tomorrow night, we have an outdoor show in Tucson where it's gonna be 95," he laughed, noting a date on his 2017 trek with Deep Purple. "So that should be fun. When you add the lights to the stage and the pyro and everything, it goes up to about 120 onstage. I'm thinking I have to rethink all the leather I wear."
"Since I don't drink or smoke, every show's an aerobic workout for me," he added. "I come off the tour in better shape than when I went on the tour. I lose like two inches off my waist. It's good for me to be on tour, physically."
