Alice Cooper Announces UK Tour Dates With The Stranglers

Shock rock icon Alice Cooper has announced that he will embark on a headlining tour of the United Kingdom this October, where he will be joined by punk/new wave veterans, The Stranglers. The tour, which is being called, “Ol’ Black Is Eyes Is Back,” will stretch across seven dates and will also include support from MC50, the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the MC5.

Speaking to the NME, Cooper stated: “The great thing about the tour coming to the UK is we’ve done this last show for the last two and a half years so we’re ready to retire this show. The next show, all the elements are out there – it’s going to be a pure Alice Cooper show. It’s going to have all the stuff that everybody wants to see and new stuff and for the songs, we dip into a bunch of albums that people probably are not going to expect us to go to. So it’s going to be a total Alice extravaganza.”

The tour dates are as follows:

October 4 – Manchester Arena – Manchester, England
October 5 – The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) – Aberdeen, Scotland
October 7 – First Direct Arena – Leeds, England
October 8 – Brighton Centre – Brighton, England
