Alice Cooper will return to the road this fall on a headlining tour in support of his recent album, Detroit Stories. The veteran shock rocker will be joined on the bill by fellow rock legend Ace Frehley.
Last year, Cooper was on the road right up until a few days before the pandemic shut down the concert industry. He had an extensive itinerary mapped out for the rest of 2020, and will finally be able to resume touring this September.
The 26-date tour kicks off September 17th in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and runs through an October 23rd gig at the Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta. Former KISS guitarist Frehley will be on board for all but the opening and closing dates.
Cooper is looking forward to touring with his fellow Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, stating, “We’ve always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again. It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!”
In mentioning “virtuoso guitars,” Cooper is not only referring to Frehley, but to his own talented guitarists Nita Strauss and Ryan Roxie.
Frehley, meanwhile, released his second covers album, Origins, Vol. 2, in 2020, featuring his takes on songs by Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Beatles, and more.
