Alice Cooper Live at Whisky A Go-Go

September 5, 2011

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In the midst of the “No More Mr. Nice Guy” world tour, Alice Cooper will treat fans to a special performance at the legendary Whisky a Go-Go on Thursday, September 15, 2011, 9:00pm. Cooper will take the stage of the legendary rock venue, on the Sunset Strip, for the first time since Alice Cooper the band performed there live in 1969 with Led Zeppelin.

“The Whisky had an option for a return engagement, but we got busy and it just slipped our minds. No, seriously, the Whisky gig we did with Led Zeppelin is something we all talk about to this day. It’s going to be amazing to go back as a straight ahead LA bar band… We might even take requests. I figure, if we could do it in London, we can do it at the Whisky. And it’s LA, so you never know who else might show up…”

Earlier this summer, Cooper played the world renowned 100 Club in London with special guest guitarist Johnny Depp and received rave reviews. The London Times gave the evening 4 stars, while Kerrang stated, quite simply, “Truly, this is an amazing gig, priceless. Every Alice Cooper fan deserves to be here.”

Cooper will be joined by Steve Hunter, one of rock’s great guitarists; Tommy Henriksen who co-wrote much of the new release; bassist Chuck Garric; drummer Glen Sobel; and eminent guitar prodigy Orianthi, making her debut with the band.

The audience will hear some old school hits in addition to songs from his new album Welcome 2 My Nightmare, the long-awaited sequel to his 1975 classic Welcome to My Nightmare, which is released on September 13, 2011.
