Cooper, a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, usually spends up to six months a year on the road, bringing his iconic brand of rock psycho-drama 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 the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie. Alice Cooper concerts remain a “not-to-be-missed” attraction.

Frehley, KISS co-founder and 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, continues his reflections on a lifetime in music with Origins, Vol. 2. No stranger to cover versions throughout his musical history — having recorded, rebranded and repossessed such notable nuggets as New York GrooveDo Ya and I Wanna Go Back over the course of his eight previous studio efforts — this new collection presents a thoughtful and exciting selection of songs that inspired and helped shape the legendary guitarist. Foremost of importance to the original Spaceman is delivering an album his fans will enjoy, but one where every song also has a place in his life’s jukebox.

“I’ve known Alice for over 30 years,” says Frehley. “We’re good friends, and we’ve toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock.”

  1. Sounds like it’s going to be a fun tour! Just curious though, why was “The Stadium Tour” canceled again? Everybody else is heading out to the highway soon, so why did the Crue/Leppard/Poison/Jett get pushed back to 2022??

    1. This is totally conjecture on my part, but I would think it’s because The Stadium Tour is, well, a stadium tour. (a) Booking dates this close to summer while maneuvering around home baseball games would be a logistical nightmare; (b) the CDC gave the green light so suddenly that to get a massive production (crew, production, transportation, rentals, etc.) off the ground on such short notice would be another logistical nightmare; (c) not all states are going to have the same rules for massive public gatherings, safety and mask regulations, etc., which also would be a logistical nightmare for stadium shows; and quite possibly (d) with a significant number of tix in flux (refunds, resales, etc.) this year, it was probably financially safer for the band to have definitive dates with little to no Covid concerns next year, and in the meantime, another year’s worth of free revenue from interest on the already-sold tix.

    2. But the strange thing is that Green Day and Weezer’s summer baseball stadium tour is a go. I guess maybe the venues think they’re more important? Who knows

    3. This isn’t a question of who the venues think is “more important” (they like anyone who can sell out their venue – whether it’s Motley Crue or Beyonce). Green Day and Weezer don’t have the over-the-top, elaborate stage productions that Motley Crue and Def Leppard have. I’m pretty certain that it costs a whole lot more to put on a Motley Crue tour than it does a Green Day/Weezer tour. As I said earlier, I’m sure this postponement is the result of logistics and straight-up maximizing profitability.

  2. Great that Ace is sharing a stage with another musician who wears make up. Too bad its not with his former band while wearing his iconic make up….
