CooperShock rock legend Alice Cooper is the latest act confirmed for the 2014 edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, taking place June 4th – 7th in Solvesborg, Sweden. It will be Cooper‘s only show in Sweden for the summer of 2014.

In the early 70s he, and at the time his namesake band, defined shock rock forever. This era has become a template for generations, including such names as Kiss and Marilyn Manson. Consider songtitles like “School’s out”, “Billion dollar babies”, “I’m eighteen” och “No more Mr Nice Guy”. In the late 80s, sensation struck again. The seasoned veteran became a star also on the melodic scene of the day – smash hits like “Poison” and “Hey stoopid” conquered another generation. And so on. The phenomenon that is Alice Cooper continues to fascinate to this day. On his next album, it’s all about covers: Alice‘s personal favorites from the early 70s. On stage, however, it’s still about the very thing that always made Alice Cooper unique. A magnificent show, ripe with horrific events but always with a smile beneath the surface.

Cooper has just completed work on a covers album featuring songs that were originally written and recorded by The DoorsJimi HendrixJohn Lennon and The Who, members of the so-called “Hollywood vampires” of the early and mid-’70s. A spring 2014 release is expected. Read more here.
