Alice Cooper and Halestorm to tour across the US this summer

Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper has revealed that he’s bringing his Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back tour to the US this summer.

Last month, Cooper announced the UK leg (opens in new tab), which will take place in October with special guests The Stranglers and MC50 featuring Wayne Kramer.

The US leg will get under way at the PPL Centre in Allentown on July 17 and wrap up with a performance at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion on August 16 – and he’ll be joined by Halestorm and Motionless In White.

Cooper says: “We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band. Can’t wait to get to the first show.”

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale adds: “We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on rock'n'roll… Alice Cooper.

“Alice is our A in the ABC’s of rock music, and we are honoured to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”
