Original Alice Cooper 2015 reunion show to be released on Sept. 30

Formed in 1968, the original Alice Cooper band forged a theatrical brand of hard rock that was destined to shock and had never been seen before. Within five years, the group released seven studio albums, amongst them the international breakthrough “School’s Out” (including the top 10 hit of the same name) and the U.S. number one “Billion Dollar Babies” (1973).

By 1974, the band had risen to the upper echelon of rock stardom … and then it dissolved. 

In October 2015, over 40 years later, record store owner and superfan Chris Penn convinced the original lineup to reunite for a special performance at Good Records, his record store in Dallas, Texas.

Alice Cooper (vocals), Michael Bruce (guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass) and Neal Smith (drums) were joined on stage by Alice’s current guitarist, Ryan Roxie (standing in for the late Glen Buxton). A packed audience was expecting to attend Dennis Dunaway’s “Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!” book signing. But they ended up witnessing a full-blown happening.

The reunion show including all-time classics such as “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out,” will be available for the first time worldwide on Sept. 30, 2022.

Luckily, the event was also filmed. The documentary movie “Live from the Astroturf, Alice Cooper” (edited and directed by Steven Gaddis) was warmly welcomed at film festivals all over the world by music fans and rock journalists. The documentary won multiple awards for its coverage of the historic event. 

The movie is included in the live album’s first print CD and vinyl LP editions. More details and pre-order options can be found here
