Alice Cooper, The Chelsea, August 12, 2017
August 12th 2017 brought the opening night of the Spend the Night with Alice Cooper Tour at The Chelsea in Las Vegas, NV.
Alice Cooper is so much more than just an awesome rock concert; it’s a fantastic theatrical show as well. He still controls the stage like it was 1973. Backed by an incredible band, Alice’s voice and his theatrics push the evening’s show to its full potential.
Having three phenomenal guitar players (Ryan Roxie, Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen) allow for a multi layered sound to recreate the original studio tracks flawlessly. He also has one of the best rhythm sections in rock with Chuck Garric (bass) and Glen Sobel (drums).
Opening the show was “Brutal Planet”, then came a barrage of non-stop hits like “No More Mr. Nice Guy”, “Poison”, “Only Women Bleed” as well as many of his classics like “Billion Dollar Babies”, “Under My Wheels” and “Cold Ethyl”. New music included the song “Paranoiac Personality” from the newly released CD entitled “Paranormal” which includes appearances by his original Alice Cooper band mates.
He’s such a consummate showman with a flair for the theatrical that it makes it hard to be let down. I’ve convinced people who weren’t fans to go see him and they walked away amazed and surprised at how great the show truly is.
