The song ‘Poison’, taken from Alice Cooper‘s upcoming release “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris”, can be streamed below.
Following the release of the 2017 studio album “Paranormal”, which was the best chart-performing album by Alice Cooper in decades, the American rock legend took his exciting live show all over the world, accompanied by “the best band he has ever had.”
After an entire year spent on the road, the “Paranormal” tour ended in Paris on December 7, 2017 at the world-renowned Olympia, a theatre that is iconic in the truest sense of the word.
The Olympia, since opening in 1888, has witnessed changes in entertainment and pop culture for 130 years from the can-can through Édith Piaf to Johnny Hallyday and the Beatles and now… Alice Cooper!
This 90-minute rock show is a journey through Alice Cooper‘s timeless creations: classics like “Poison”, “School’s Out” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy” are alternated with hand-picked gems for the joy of true Cooper connoisseurs like “Pain”, “Woman Of Mass Destruction” and “Paranoiac Personality”, the first single from the album “Paranormal”.
The album captures a rock ‘n’ roll show at its peak and is one of the best live releases by Alice Cooper, featuring his longtime band guitarists Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, bassist Chuck Garric, and drummer Glen Sobel in front of an excited audience.

In July 2017, the artist released “Paranormal”, his first studio album in six years. Produced by Bob Ezrin, it was immediately saluted as a classic Alice Cooper album, featuring collaborations with iconic guests such as ZZ TOP‘s Billy Gibbons, U2‘s Larry Mullen, Jr. and Deep Purple‘s Roger Glover, as well Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce — the three original Alice Cooper band members.
The album charted at #4 in the German and Australian official album charts, #6 in the U.K. and in Sweden and overall, it reached the highest chart positions for Alice in several decades.
