Alice Cooper has extended his 2020 Ol’ Black Eyes is Back tour into the summer of 2020, adding shows in May and June on top of the already announced April dates. Support will be provided by Lita Ford and Tesla. Legendary rockers Blue Oyster Cult will be joining Cooper for one date (12 June) in Welch, Minnesota.
Alice Cooper recently spoke about his Hollywood Vampires bandmate, Johnny Depp, and how he prefers playing the guitar to his day job of acting, which he is possibly better known for.
Cooper’s latest release was the Breadcrumbs EP, a six-track release featuring various covers, alongside an updated version of 2003’s Detroit City. The garage-inspired covers on the EP include Detroit rock classics such as Suzi Quatro’s Your Mama Won’t Like Me, Bob Seger’s East Side Story, the MC5’s Sister Anne, Shorty Long’s Devil With a Blue Dress On, and The Dirtbombs’ Chains of Love. You can listen to the EP below.
