Alice Cooper and Halestorm join forces for co-headline tour with two New England dates

Alice Cooper and Halestorm join forces for co-headline tour with two New England dates

Shock Rock icon Alice Cooper and Grammy-winning hard rock band Halestorm have announced a co-headline amphitheater tour across North America this summer. The 19-city tour will kick off July 17 in Allentown, PA at the PPL Center and make two stops in New England on August 10th in Portland, ME and August 11th in Gilford, NH. Motionless In White will support on all dates.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 8th at 10 AM local time.

“We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band, can’t wait to get to the first show,” said Alice Cooper.

“We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on Rock n Roll…Alice Cooper,” said Lzzy Hale, frontwoman of Halestorm. “Alice is our A in the ABC’s of Rock music, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”

Rock’n Roll Hall of Famer Cooper will bring an all-new show for the Summer 2019 tour. Dubbed “Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back,” the show will have a very different look than recent tours. New music from Alice is expected in time for the tour, once again produced by Alice’s longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who most recently produced 2017’s acclaimed Paranormal album, featuring friends like ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, U2’s Larry Mullen Jr, and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover, as well as original Alice Cooper band members Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce.

Grammy-Award winning band Halestorm released their fourth full-length album, Vicious, last year. Called a “muscular, adventurous, and especially relevant rock record” by Rolling Stone, Vicious earned the band their second Grammy nomination, for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “Uncomfortable,” the band’s fourth #1 at rock radio.
