Alice Cooper to Rock the Segerstrom Center, 11/26
Musical macabre and mayhem will take to stage at Segerstrom Hall as founding father of modern horror rock music, Alice Cooper, makes his Segerstrom Center debut on Tuesday, November 26 at 7:30 p.m. as part of his Raise the Dead tour.
"If there's nothing standing in my way, why not?" declares the shock rocker. "It's what I love doing. And no one puts on a show as good as ours, musically and visually. I'm glad to be an elder statesman, and a healthy one. I look to guys like Ozzy, Iggy and Steven Tyler as fellow survivors. We're carnivores, not dinosaurs. We eat whatever bands are in our path."

Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name. Since going solo, he has continued to produce elaborate stage shows providing fans with both shock and rock of the highest caliber.
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Cooper has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being Welcome 2 My Nightmare through UMe. Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original ground breaking, multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Cooper trapped in his own warped mind.
His catalog of hits and anthems, including "I'm Eighteen," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," School's Out," "Elected," "Poison," and others, are included in his current Raise the Dead show, which also features his musical tribute to his fallen friends John Lennon, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. Currently, Cooper's touring band features the three guitar attack of Orianthi, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel.
Additionally, "Nights with Alice Cooper," his nightly radio show, is available in nearly 100 cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. The show features his favorite classic rock songs along with his insider anecdotes about many of the artists.
