Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper continues the 1970s rockers-on-the-wane theme that local promoters have spent much of 2005 working on. Cooper (real name Vincent Furnier) was once a feared and notorious showman of both rock and horror. His shock-rock circus spawned many imitators. However, Cooper has had but one hit in the past two decades (1989's Poison) and has downsized from playing Rod Laver Arena in the mid-1990s to smaller theatres. Yet his admission price has only risen as his crowds have shrunk. The Palais Theatre, St Kilda, June 30. Tickets $125, Ticketmaster7, phone 136 100 or
