NEWS: Alice Cooper Kicks Off Halloween – Watch on Sky 3D Oct 31st

Alice Cooper brought his show to London for Halloween, presenting freaks, fire acts and more to kick Halloween off in style on Saturday night.

Legend Arthur Brown joined Alice and his band for an encore of Arthur’s groundbreaking 1968 number 1 Fire, complete with flaming headwear. The 60s’ fire starter was a major influence on Alice who in turn gave birth to the glam rock movement that inspired the night’s openers the New York Dolls.

And the whole event, complete with an audience in their greatest Halloween costumes and roaming zombies searching for fresh meat, was captured by cameras to be broadcast Halloween night on Sky 3D and Sky Arts (October 31st, 9pm).

With Alice Cooper classics from I’m Eighteen, to Under My Wheels, School’s Out and Elected, his blistering band featured Lou Reed and original Alice sideman Steve Hunter, as well 20 year old Australian guitar prodigy Orianthi, making an unprecedented 3 guitar attack, pushing the group to new heights.

Following last year’s outstanding Halloween gigs at London’s Roundhouse, which left fans gasping for more, Alice extended his reign of terror in 2011 to Sheffield, Bristol, Birmingham, London, Manchester and Glasgow.

New album Welcome 2 My Nightmare, the sequel to 1975’s classic Welcome To My Nightmare is out now. Once again produced with Bob Ezrin, it has been called ‘scarily good’ (The Sun) and a ‘thoroughly inventive, modern sounding record (The Guardian).
