Alice Cooper, the architect of shock-rock, returns in a spectacular show supporting his newly released CD
'On August 12th we were on hand for the opening night of the Spend the Night with Alice Cooper co-headline tour with rock legends Deep Purple. It took place at The Chelsea Event Center at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV.
Alice Cooper is so much more than just an awesome rock concert; it's a fantastic theatrical show as well. He still controls the stage like it was 1973. Backed by an incredible band, Alice's voice and his theatrics push the evening’s show to its full potential.
Having three phenomenal guitar players (Ryan Roxie, Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen) allow for a multi layered sound to recreate the original studio tracks flawlessly. He also has one of the best rhythm sections in rock with Chuck Garric (bass) andGlen Sobel (drums).
Opening the show was “Brutal Planet”, and then came a barrage of non-stop hits like "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "Poison", "Only Women Bleed" as well as many of his classics like "Billion Dollar Babies", "Under My Wheels" and “Cold Ethyl”. New music included the song “Paranoiac Personality” from the newly released CD entitled “Paranormal” which includes appearances by his original Alice Cooper band mates.

He's such a consummate showman with a flair for the theatrical that it makes it hard to be let down. I've convinced people who weren't fans to go see him and they walked away amazed and surprised at how great the show truly is.
