Alice Cooper has booked a massive summer/fall world tour starting with 11 European shows from July 6 in Karvana, BEL to July 25 in Southampton, ENG. Cooper returns to North America for 21 U.S. shows starting on July 31 in Redmond, WA, and winds down on September 12 in Hutchinson, KS. Additional U.S. shows will be confirmed shortly. Then, the heavy metal icon has 25 Canadian concerts on the books starting on September 18 in Vancouver, BC and finishing up October 22 in Cornerbrook, NF.

Cooper returns stateside for six Halloween shows in the Northeast with two booked thus far. All told, Cooper expects to play at least 75 shows, and will concentrate on playing state fairs, army bases, casinos, arenas and theaters, including three nights at Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from September 5-7.

Cooper will be releasing his 25th album, “Along Came a Spider,” on July 28 on German label SPV Records. It is described as a concept album with a sinister streak. The album is a love story about a serial killer, the Spider, told through Spider’s voice. Cooper describes Spider as “an arachnophobic psychopath” in the song “Catch Me If You Can.” Cooper, a master storyteller, weaves a web of danger, intrigue and death that rivals his best work. Guitarist Slash guests on a track.

Among Cooper’s best-known classic albums are “Love It to Death,” “Killer,” “School’s Out,” and “Billion Dollar Babies.” His hits include “I’m Eighteen,” “Under My Wheels,” “School’s Out,” “Elected,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
