Legendary shock rocker known for gruesome beheadings and pet snakes, Alice Cooper, kicks off his world tour on April 21st, 2017 in Biloxi, MS.
From there he will continue traveling across the country, and he’ll eventually land in Tennessee on May 14th, where it’s been just announced that he will reunite with four members of the original band for a “mini set.”
Original members include Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce, and Neal Smith. Glen Buxton, original lead guitarist for the Alice Cooper Group unfortunately passed away in 1997 due to complications with pneumonia.
The press release from TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center) reads:
“NASHVILLE, Tenn. 一 Original Alice Cooper band members Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce will perform with the legendary shock-rock performer at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall on May 14. Nashville is the only date on the 2017 Spend the Night with Alice Cooper USA tour where fans can experience a special mini-set featuring the four original members of the group, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
Tickets are on sale now at TPAC.org by phone at 615-782-4040, and at the TPAC Box Office.”
The release shared on Cooper’s Facebook page also reads:
“Bassist Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith, and guitarist Michael Bruce have contributed to and appear on Cooper’s forthcoming new album due this summer, produced again by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin.
‘We’ve recorded much of my last album and my new one in Nashville and it’s such a great music town,’ said Cooper. ‘With so many musician, songwriter and producer friends here, as well as great rock fans who come to our concerts, it’s special to be performing with Neal, Michael and Dennis in Nashville for them.’”
