TALLINN - Welcome to the theater of hoaxes, horrors and nightmares, a theater where you become not only spectator, but a participant in the show, one full of riots, blood and rock’n’roll, starring the inimitable Alice Cooper.
Cooper, born Vincent Damon Fournier, The Great and Terrible, is a Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame member, is an idol for several generations of dedicated hard-rock fans around the world, and according to Rolling Stones magazine, he “returns on stage to present his new, the most spectacular, show, created especially for theatrical venues, the Theater of Death new performance ‘Raise the Dead.’”
Cooper’s concerts are always unforgettable magical spectacles, which have an inner drama. How many times will the protagonist die and rise again on stage this time? How many times will he soar above the stage, convulsing in his tunes?
And you have not seen the live act of Orianthi Panagris yet – the new star of Alice’s theater! What divine guitar sounds retrieves this young Australian actress, better known for Michael Jackson’s tragically failed “This Is It” tour – you can’t miss her this time!
Ozzy Osborne was one of the first who recognized the historical importance of Cooper’s creativity: “Alice was our father. He was doing on stage even more seditious things than I did. He is the greatest!”
Alice the Great will sing the best of his 30-year rocker career repertoire in a stage set especially constructed for this concert.
One day, back in the mid ’70s, in an interview Cooper mentioned: “We are here to make fun of only three things: sex, death and money.” It seems that the artist hasn’t changed his views since that time – he only reinforced his shows with an incredible magical strength and excellent rock-musician potential.
It’s going to be a fun and exciting night at Nokia Concert Hall in Tallinn on Oct. 10, with the original self-proclaimed rock villain Cooper live in concert!
Without Cooper, there might never have been KISS, the New York Dolls, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Slipnot or Rob Zombie. Maybe not even David Bowie, or at least not Ziggy Stardust. The iconic hard rocker literally invented the concept of the rock concert as theater, and on Oct. 10, Cooper will bring his “Raise the Dead Tour” to the Baltics with the only show in the Baltic States.
Welcome 2 My Nightmare is Cooper’s latest album, recorded in 2011. It was his 26th studio album and upon its release exploded onto the Billboard 200 Charts, landing at the 22nd spot. With a musical career that started over 40 years ago, Cooper was again sitting squarely on the charts with artists such as Lady Gaga, Primus, Bush, and Beyonce. This amazing achievement for one of music’s most influential artists proves the relevance and popularity of Cooper today.
With a schedule that includes six months of every year on the road, Cooper is bringing his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, and enjoying it as much as the audience does, performing hits like “Only Women Bleed,” “I Never Cry,” “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “School’s Out” and many others.
So ladies and gentlemen, whether old or young... if you get the chance to see Alice Cooper live, just do it! Buy a ticket and you’ll experience an amazing rock’n’roll show, like you’ve never seen before.
