Alice Cooper concert chronology

The Theatre of Death Tour was a concert tour by solo artist Alice Cooper that began on July 31, 2009. The tour consisted of 11 legs spanning across North America, Australia and Europe. This tour was notable compared to other recent tours for incorporating a heavy use of theatrics and stunts performed by Cooper himself and a number of actors, including his daughter. His performance in London was filmed for the Theatre of Death: Live At Hammersmith 2009 live DVD, released in 2010.

Alice Cooper American rock singer, songwriter and musician

With his distinctive raspy voice and a stage show that features guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, deadly snakes, baby dolls, and dueling swords, Cooper is considered by music journalists and peers alike to be "The Godfather of Shock Rock". He has drawn equally from horror films, vaudeville, and garage rock to pioneer a macabre and theatrical brand of rock designed to shock people.
