Alice Cooper recently announced plans for a joint U.S. summer tour with contemporary heavy-metal act Halestorm, scheduled from mid-July to mid-August. Now, the shock rocker has lined up six stateside headlining concerts just prior to the trek.
The shows, which run from a July 4 gig in Mashantucket, Connecticut, through a July 11 performance in Wabash, Indiana, mark the U.S. debut of Cooper's brand-new show, dubbed "Ol' Black Eyes Is Back."
Tickets for the new dates go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 15, at 10 a.m. local time. A VIP pre-sale will begin on Tuesday, March 12, at 10 a.m.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is working on new music that's being produced by frequent collaborator Bob Ezrin. He's expected to release it by the start of his summer trek.
Cooper also recently announced plans for a seven-show run of May shows in the Western U.S. with his supergroup The Hollywood Vampires, which also features Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and actor/musician Johnny Depp.
Alice's itinerary also includes a May 4 appearance at the Dominion Festival in Mexico City, a July 13 performance at the Roxodus Festival in Stayner, Canada, and a late summer/early fall tour of mainland Europe and the U.K.
