Alice Cooper announces two NZ shows in Feb 2020

Iconic shock rocker and Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper has announced he’s returning to New Zealand in February 2020 with his all-new "Ol' Black Eyes Is Back" show. Special guests with Alice Cooper on the New Zealand leg of this international tour will be Aussie rock stalwarts Airbourne along with MC50, featuring Wayne Kramer of the legendary MC5 with an all-star band performing MC5 classics.

Having shocked and delighted fans in equal measure for five decades, Alice Cooper’s new outlandish stage show incorporates a setting inside his Nightmare Castle, and features not only the return of FrankenAlice, but also the new Billion Dollar Baby. With a revamped setlist which includes not only the classic hits but some select deep album tracks and new music, New Zealand fans are in for a real treat when Alice Cooper takes to the stage in early 2020.

The tour, presented by TEG Live, comes to New Zealand for two shows, taking in Auckland’s The Trusts Arena on February 20, followed by Horncastle Arena in Christchurch on February 22.

Known as one of the hardest working people in music, Alice Cooper also records and tours with The Hollywood Vampires with pals Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, while continuing his long-running nightly syndicated radio show "Nights With Alice Cooper," heard worldwide on over 100 radio stations, including New Zealand.

New music from Alice Cooper is also imminent, with the announcement of the September 13 release of mini-album “The Breadcrumbs” from (earMUSIC), a tribute to his Detroit rock origins, recorded in Detroit with Detroit musicians, featuring covers of classic Detroit-originated songs.
