Anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing Alice Cooper’s stage show over the last couple of decades knows there’s always a helluva lot of shenanigans on stage. In recent years, prop guillotines, a smoke-spewing toy box, bosomy Goth nurses and even gigantic Frankenstein monsters wrestle for space with a five-piece band, who are equally adept at racing around as they are at playing their instruments. And, of course, there’s Cooper himself, the Supreme God of Shock Rock, who struts and menaces the crowd as if the Seventies never ended.

It’s quite a spectacle, alright — an overwhelmingly jam-packed performance, guaranteed to keep the customers “loving every moment, every scream.”
