Hey all, been a long time since i started a thread but just have to now. I saw Alice Cooper in concert (Ottawa - Landsowne park) last night (sat 11th) and it was AWESOME! Has anyone else ever seen him live? I'll admit to not wanting to go 'coz it's not really my kind of music, but boy was i bown away by the show and it turned out to be fantastic...specially the 'hanging' part where it looked like he'd hung himself from the gallows! I've never seen a show like that where so much theatricals has been performed and sooo much energy has been spewed out....it's definately the best concert i've been too!!! So, anyone wanna share their Cooper stories then go right ahead!
ps...Econoline Crush opened for them and they were brilliant! Not bad for saying my ticket was free

I had the pleasure of seeing Alice a couple of times in KBUF around 1977-1979. A great time was had by all. Those were is full shows with all the props .... Ah to be young again... (And of course Al was a bit younger back then as well)

Saw him ages ago (late 70's or early 80's) and he had the same band that played on Lou Reed's Rock & Roll Animal album. Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner on guitar, Prakesh John on bass, Whitey Glan on drums - they were amazing. He put on a great stage show too. There was a live album from that tour called "The Alice Cooper Show" and I still have it.

Good to hear Vinnie is still playing and attracting a younger audience.
I saw Alice in ''74 during the "Billion Dollar Babies" tour. They had a prop guillotine and cut off Alice's head then played "I love the dead". I think the bands of the '70's pretty much did it all back then and are still being copied today.
