The original “shock rocker” Alice Cooper has announced the dates for his summer and fall 2022 “Detroit Muscle” U.S. tour.
The VIP pre-sale is set for Tuesday, April 12 at 10 a.m. local time with general public on-sale taking place Friday, April 15 at 10 a.m. local time.
Cooper, a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, usually spends up to six months a year on the road, bringing his iconic brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does. Known as the architect of shock rock, Cooper (in both the original ALICE COOPER band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie. Alice Cooper concerts remain a “not-to-be-missed” attraction!
Alice’s universally acclaimed 2021 album “Detroit Stories” is available via earMUSIC. The record, a celebration of the sound and spirit of the Golden Era of Detroit rock, debuted on the Billboard sales chart at No. 1 upon release in February 2021.
The Associated Press called “Detroit Stories” “a masterpiece of classic rock, soul and R&B in homage to the city that produced him,” while Entertainment Weekly proclaimed the release “a love letter from Cooper to his city, and one that encourages a deep dive into his own back catalog and that of his peers.” Variety deemed the album “a delicious tip of the hat to ’70s classics such as ‘Killer’ and ‘School’s Out’ without sounding like a throwback.” Rolling Stone enthused, “That spirit of rock & roll abandon still exists in Cooper’s music half a century later, and his inherent showmanship is why people still fill theaters to see his guillotine act. It’s also why his records are still fun to listen to: You never know where he’s headed.”
