Alice Cooper is still the King of Shock.


An Alice Cooper concert is more of an evening at the theatre, albeit more gory, violent and louder than the average. Everything you want, expect and need from the band is on here: violent murders, hangings, tight leather trousers, whips, wedding dresses, leather jackets and more.


Many of the songs are played as they were conceived, as mini rock operas. When the band rock through the likes of "Dead Babies" or "Elected", Alice Cooper is at the centre of the action - killing a woman in a wedding dress (his real-life daughter), running for election, throwing around babies and being hanged. It'd be fair to say that Cooper puts on quite a show, and you've got to remember, he was doing all this before The Rocky Horror Show. With better songs, too.


Most of the material is picked from the trio of early '70s albums that were so influential – ‘Billion Dollar Babies", "Feed My Frankenstein" and "Street Fight" are all there with the biggest numbers of "Schools Out" and "Poison".


It was more than forty years ago when Alice Cooper first strutted onto a stage and shocked the world with his brand of music theatre. Other bands and plays may have stolen, borrowed and flirted with his ideas but Alice Cooper is still the master and still one of the very best nights out in rock.
