What A Load Of Rubbish!

US goremaster Alice Cooper will precede his December UK tour with a one-off show at London's legendary Marquee club!

The show is on November 23 - Thanksgiving Day in the US!

There will be no advance tickets for the show. Instead, in order to buy tickets, priced Alice fans will have to come to the Marquee on the day of the show with a bag full of trash collected on the streets of London!

Alice will then collect all of the trash in his customized Trash Truck, which he'll bring to the gig as part of his 'Keep Trash Off The Streets And On Your Stereo' campaign!

Fans will be able to pick up special Alice trash collection bags from the Marquee on the day of the show. Tickets will then be allocated on a strict first-come, first-served basis.

The Marquee show will be the first Alice has ever performed in the UK without his famed stage theatrics.

Alice has confirmed the line-up of his band, who'll be appearing at the Marquee and with him throughout his world tour.

It features former Lita Ford basist Tommy Caradonna, guitarists Al Pitrelli and Pete Freezin', keyboard player Derek Sherinian and drummer Jonathan Mover, who once enjoyed a brief spell with Marillion!

Alice broke in the new band in a special club show at La's famous Cathouse club on Halloweeen, after which he decided to repeat the experience at the Marquee!

Alice releases a new single, 'House Of Fire', through Epic on November 20. Taken from the 'Trash' album, it's backed with 'This Maniac's In Love With You'. 12" and CD formats add a live 'Billion Dollar Babies' and 'Under My Wheels'.
