Singer, song-writer and bonified rockstar Alice Cooper reunited with his original band on Sunday night at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville and played a “mini set” of five classic songs. They opened with “I’m Eighteen,” and continued to play “Billion Dollar Babies,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and “Muscle of Love.” Alice Cooper closed out the show performing the hit track “School’s Out.” Lined up along the stage was bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith, a setup original fans are sure to remember. It’s the first time the band has reunited such a big scale since being together for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
The guys have recently been working with Alice Cooper in the recording studio in Nashville on his upcoming album Paranormal, set to be released on July 28. Cooper recruited his longtime prodcuer Bob Ezrin for the album, and has features including U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover. The ablum will even come with a bonus disc containing three new songs by Cooper, Smith, Dunaway and Bruce.
Alice Cooper and the band Deep Purple have announced Summer 2017 tour dates so check out the itinerary here. They’re also featured on the lineup for the Rock in Rio Festival this year along fellow icons Guns N’ Roses, and Nile Rodgers. The show will be one fans won’t want to miss, as their performance at Pyscho Las Vegas 2016 was killer.
