On May 14, following Alice Cooper‘s customary execution via guillotine on stage at his Nashville concert, fans were treated to something rarely seen since 1973. The stage went dark and original band members, bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith reunited to perform a five song mini-set of their classic hits with Alice. This followed the recent announcement that his forthcoming album — “Paranormal”, out July 28 on earMUSIC — will include two new recordings written and recorded by the original lineup (“Genuine American Girl” and “You And All Of Your Friends”).

Now, Alice announces that the three members of the original Alice Cooper band will join him on tour in the U.K., returning to these shores 46 years after they first shocked and enthralled us on their historic 1971 tour.
