Time to feed your Frankenstein! Alice Cooper to perform at the Dr. Phillips Center in August!
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, in association with Live Nation, announces the Orlando engagement of Spend the Night with Alice Cooper. The legendary musician and “architect of shock-rock,” known for rattling cages and undermining the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, will bring his personal brand of psycho-drama and dark, horror-themed theatrics to the Walt Disney Theater on Sunday, August 14, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Tickets for the performance will be on sale to the public Friday, April 15, 2016 at 10 a.m. Tickets start at $45.00 and may be purchased online at drphillipscenter.org, by calling 844.513.2014 or by visiting the Dr. Phillips Center Box Office at 445 S. Magnolia Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday. Online and phone ticket purchases include handling fees. VIP packages are also available at alicecooper.com.
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 boa constrictors.
Cooper has been touring consistently, year-in and year-out, averaging over 80 concerts annually, both within the U.S. and internationally with his band, which features the three-guitar-attack of guitarists Ryan Roxie, Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen, plus the rhythm section of drummer Glen Sobel and longtime bassist Chuck Garric.
In 2007, he wrote and published a memoir, “Golf Monster” in 2007, which tracked his life from childhood to rock stardom, as well as his journey from alcoholic to golf addict. In 2012, he was featured in Tim Burton’s film “Dark Shadows.” 2014 saw the release of “Super Duper Alice Cooper,” a documentary detailing the arc of Cooper’s rollercoaster ride in the world of superstardom. Directed and produced by the same team from Banger Films that delivered the award-winning Iron Maiden and Rush documentaries, it premiered at the 2014 TriBeCa Film Festival in New York City. It has since been released on Blu-Ray and DVD by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
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.
As he heads back on the concert trail each year, Cooper insists he’s still motivated to continue touring and recording albums, as well as making time for such side projects as Cooper’stown (his Phoenix-based restaurant/sports bar) and his “Nights with Alice Cooper” nightly radio show, syndicated domestically and worldwide on over 100 stations.
No doubt, the Dr. Phillips Center will be rocking out this August when Alice Cooper comes to perform!
