Loveland, CO – Legendary rocker, Alice Cooper will play at the Blue Arena, Tuesday, October 4th, 2022.  Tickets for Alice Cooper go on sale Friday, April 15th at 10:00a.m. (MST) at BUDWEISEREVENTSCENTER.COM or the Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies Box Office at the Blue Arena.

Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock.  Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and exotic reptiles. He continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for.

Alice Cooper brings his own brand of rock psychodrama to fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does. Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages, and undermined authority for generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn.

As if that wasn't enough, “Nights with Alice Cooper,” Alice’s nightly radio show, continues to air in nearly 100 cities in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK. The five-hour long show features his favorite classic rock songs along with his insider anecdotes about many of the artists. 

Cooper was born in Detroit Michigan and later moved to Phoenix with his family.  The Alice Cooper band later formed, while in a Phoenix high school. Frank Zappa discovered them in Los Angeles in 1969 and signed them to his record label.  Their collaboration with young record producer Bob Ezrin led to the break-through third album “Love It to Death” which hit the charts in 1971, followed by “Killer,” “School’s Out,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and “Muscle of Love.”  Each new album release was accompanied by a bigger and more elaborate touring stage show.   In 1974 their “Greatest Hits” album was released, and then Cooper released “Welcome to My Nightmare,” his first solo album.

That album led to a ground-breaking network TV special “Alice Cooper: The Nightmare.”  Other film and television appearances include: The Muppet ShowSextette (Mae West’s last film), Roadie, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearst Club Band, and appearances on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, and Tom Snyder’s - Tomorrow Show. Alice’s solo career skyrocketed in the late 1970’s, with a succession of hit singles, including “You & Me,” and classic albums, including “Lace and Whiskey” and “From The Inside,” which produced bigger and more elaborate tours.
