Tickets on sale Friday for Alice Cooper's October concert

Jul. 23, 2013 @ 01:38 PM

HUNTINGTON — Halloween in Huntington just got a whole lot cooler.

A week before  All Hallow’s Eve, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Alice Cooper will transform the SMG-Managed Big Sandy Superstore Arena into his personal horror story, with a rock psycho-drama show and thrilling theatrical concert that will excite, entertain and horrify.

The platinum recording artist will return to Huntington at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 for “An Evening with Alice Cooper: All Alice, All Night.”  Cooper is known for such legendary hits like: “School’s Out,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and “I’m Eighteen.”

“Alice Cooper last thrilled audiences in Huntington at the historic Keith Albee Performing Arts Center in November of 2011 and the demand to bring him back was very high,” says Brian Sipe, General Manager of the SMG Managed Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, July 26 at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena box office, www.ticketmaster.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Ticket prices are $25, $35 and limited “Rockstar Pit” (general admission, standing room) tickets are $75. Additional fees may apply. 

Without Alice Cooper, there might never have been the NY Dolls, KISS, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Slipknot or Rob Zombie...maybe not even David Bowie, or at least not Ziggy Stardust. The iconic hard rocker, who literally invented the concept of the rock concert as theater, returns to what he does best on Along Came a Spider (SPV Records), the 25th studio album of a long and illustrious career which began in 1969 with the release of Pretties for You on Frank Zappa's Straight label.

With a schedule that includes six months of every year on the road, Alice Cooper is bringing his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, and enjoying it as much as the audience does.

Known as the architect of shock-rock, Alice (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie, even in an era where CNN can present real life shocking images.

With his influence on rock & roll long since acknowledged, there is little that Alice Cooper hasn't achieved in his remarkable career, including platinum albums, sold-out tours and any number of honors and career achievement awards.

Upcoming scheduled events include Cirkopolis on Sept 24-25, Toby Mac on Nov 7 and Jeff Dunham Nov 8, among others.
