It's so exciting to be writing about tours, hopefully, these actually happen and if they do, I will be front and center. Today, Alice Cooper announced his long-awaited headlining tour, and his opener is legendary KISS guitarist Ace Frehley.
The tour kicks off September 17 in Atlantic City and runs through October 23 in Atlanta.
"We've always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again," says Cooper. "It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!"
"I’ve known Alice for over 30 years," says Frehley. "We're good friends, and we've toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock."
