Alice's Nightmare Rolls In

Alice Cooper, the Queen of bad taste, is bringing his lavish roadshow to Britain this summer for at least five major concert dates.

The entire company from his acclaimed Alice Cooper Roadshow epic in the States is expected to tour with him in what amounts to a solo venture for the star.

Negotiations are still going on with his personal manager Shep Gordon with the aim of bringing a full orchestra here plus the band that recorded his soon-to-be-released solo album, Welcome To My Nightmare. The show features special lighting and costumes.

Alice completes the solo flight by signing a new record contract with Anchor Records for the entire world save North America - Anchor's first American signing.

The first release will be his solo album produced by Bob Ezrin and featuring Lou Reed sidekick, guitarist Steve Hunter. Cooper's own group is also still together and will continue recording with him on the Warner/Reprise label.
