As per Ultimate Classic Rock:


Alice Cooper is going back on the road with the surviving members of his original band — specifically to the U.K., where he and bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith are scheduled to perform a series of dates later this year.

Cooper and the crew have lined up five dates in all, starting Nov. 11 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds and continuing through Nov. 16, when they’re booked at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London. As the press release announcing the shows notes, this brief tour — which includes support from the Mission and the Tubes — finds the lineup returning to the U.K. 46 years after they first visited in 1971.

General admission tickets are on sale now via AXS, and VIP packages are available through Cooper’s official site. A complete list of currently scheduled shows can be found below.

The U.K. shows come amid a flurry of renewed activity with Cooper’s surviving original bandmates. As previously reported, they contributed to his upcoming Paranormal LP; more recently, they joined him for a special “mini-set” during his May 14 appearance in Nashville, after which Dunaway expressed a willingness to keep the reunion going.

“I was on cloud nine over how many amazing fans had gone to such lengths to be there,” he said of the Nashville show. “Some came from Canada, France and even Australia. As far as future reunion shows, hopefully our fans will make a big enough noise to reach the ears of the concert promoters.”

About The Author Gus

My first opportunity to write about music was with Kissunderground, featuring just one band (KISS). In 2006, I started working for another outlet that showcased more musicians. It was a great experience for me at the time. I personally nailed down some great interviews during my time at (Paul Stanley, Jonathan Davis, Slash and Sully Erna to name a few). In early 2009, I decided to venture out on my own with the idea of creating a website that has all the offerings that a reader would want in a music review website. That's when began. I’m so proud of what was created here and of our staff that brings it to you. Each one offers a diverse opinion and a creative ability to share it in a unique way. We are so lucky to have them here. When discussing making a list of favorite shows with the staff, I also found it hard to narrow that list down to a select handful of shows. Everyone experiences a concert in their own terms, whether it’s the show itself, maybe it’s the people you met there and the new friendships created, or maybe it was meeting the artist at the show. For my criteria, I tried to stick to just the show itself, but again, it was sometimes hard to do. My first concert was Sammy Hagar’s first tour with Van Halen at the Niagara Falls Convention Center, Niagara Falls, NY, on August 30, 1986. My favorites are as follows: 1. Kiss – Tiger Stadium - Detroit, Michigan 6/28/96 2. SARS (Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Rush, and handful of other bands) - Downsview Park – Toronto, Ontario 7/30/03 3. Paul McCartney (every McCartney show I saw was awesome, but Iwent with my first show) Air Canada Centre -Toronto, Ontario 10/10/05 4. Motley Crue – Memorial Auditorium – Buffalo, NY 12/19/89 5. Kid Rock – Tweeter Center - Camden, New Jersey 3/25/06 The honorable mentions would be any McCartney show (The Joint at the Hard Rock, Las Vegas, Nevada, April 2009 or Air Canada Centre Toronto, Ontario 8/10/10), Prince (Club 2112) at the Rio Hotel, Las Vegas 12/30/07, Heart (Pulse Lounge * only 200 people) Hilton Hotel, Anaheim, California, January 21,2008, Monsters of Rock (Van Halen, Scorpions, Metallica, Dokken, and Kingdom Come) Rich Stadium, Orchard Park, NY 6/19/88 and the Rocklahoma Festival (Queensryche, Lita Ford, Triumph, etc.). Also, Cher (with my mom) at the Blue Cross Arena Rochester, NY, November 22, 2004.
