Alice Cooper is touring the UK this October with Primal Scream and Sex Pistol Glen Matlock

Alice Cooper is touring the UK this October with Primal Scream and Sex Pistol Glen Matlock.

The 76-year-old rock icon has announced his first UK run since 2022, the ‘Too Close For Comfort Tour’, which kicks off in Glasgow on October 14, before heading to Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and concluding with a pair of up-close-and-personal shows at London’s Eventim Apollo on October 20 and 21.

As always, gig-goers can expect “snakes, guillotines, monsters and more”.

The OG shock rocker – whose classics include ‘Under My Wheels,’ ‘I’m Eighteen,’ ‘Schools Out,’ ‘Poison,’ ‘Billion Dollar Babies,’ and ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’ – invites fans to experience a deeper look at his world with giant video screens blending the live action with pre-recorded scenes.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee will be joined by his exceptional live band – comprising Ryan Roxie (guitar), Chuck Garric (bass), Tommy Henrikson (guitar), Glen Sobel (drums), and Nita Strauss (guitar).

Scottish rockers Primal Scream will open for Alice at all dates expect London, where Glen will take their place.

Rising punk rockers, The Meffs, will play all dates.

For his latest album, ‘Road’, Alice had all his touring musicians contribute for the first time.

He explained: “For ‘Road’, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs.

“I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.”

General sale tickets go on sale on Friday (23.02.24) via www.aegpresents.co.uk/event/alice-cooper.
