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.”

Within Temptation Posts UK Tour Recap Video Online

Dutch symphonic metal outfit Within Temptation has posted a video online recounting their recent tour of the United Kingdom. You can check it out below. The band has been touring in support of their new album, “Resist,” which is set to be released through Spinefarm Records on December 14th.

“Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band stated.

“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one,” said singer Sharon den Adel. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”
