Alice Cooper is back in the UK this October bringing his Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back tour and for the first time in history is coming to the North East. Returning to the country that first embraced him, in the 50th year since the first Alice Cooper album release, and bringing an all-new show.

The greatest ringmaster in rock once again brings a killer bill to The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA), on 5th October 2019. Iconic UK band The Stranglers are special guests plus MC50 (featuring Wayne Kramer).

Still the best rock show in the world, a night with Alice is full of the shocks, dark humour and guillotines but with a not-so-secret ingredient – incredible songs performed by a brilliant band.

Alice, commented: “We’re coming back in October for a big tour with our new show ‘Ol Black Eyes Is Back’ it’s going to be a great night with my very special guests The Stranglers plus the MC50”

Louise Stewart head of entertainment at TECA said “To bring Alice Cooper, a major influencer in rock to the North East for the first time will give rock fans across the country a show to remember. As we continue to announce a variety and new acts to TECA including Jack Whitehall also being announced this morning, we cannot wait to open our brand new venue this summer.”

Alice Cooper conducts some of best musicians on the planet, from Chuck Garric’s blistering bass, to the triple guitar attack of Nita Strauss, Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henriksen, added to the thundering Glen Sobel, consistently voted the world’s best rock drummer.

Classics like ‘Under My Wheels,’ ‘Schools Out’, ‘Poison’, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’ and the rest are joined by tracks from acclaimed recent album – Paranormal, released on earMUSIC which features guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover and also saw the highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members.

General tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 22nd February, available from Ticketmaster.
