Selina and I drove to the Birmingham NIA to see Alice Cooper on his world wide tour. We arrived at the NIA in plenty of time despite dire warnings from Rosemary. We had standing tickets so were able to rock with the music. It was amazing to see the attire of some in the audience, lots of Halloween costumes and killer nurse outfits.
First on were the New York Dolls they started slow, but warmed up to a reasonable set by the end of their slot. Then it was the turn of Alice Cooper. Yes all the usual hits and the odd new song. He wore a jacket saying New Song when he performed one. The drummer came in for some shouts of praise during his solo which was some of the fastest drumming I have seen or heard. The show was themed on No More Mister Nice Guy. Set had Frankenstein, a Guillotine and several mock killings. Seems Alice Copper is well on his way to being a born again Christian.
Something I have not seen before was the ability to buy a recording of the gig on CD as you leave the show. Two CDs recorded, and a blank disk for you to download the Encore set.
