Alice Cooper has announced a 24-date double-bill tour with Kiss co-founder Ace Frehley. Rolling Stone posted the joint dates kick off on September 18th in Gilford, New Hampshire at the Bank of NH Pavilion, and stretch through October 22nd, when the tour hits Tupelo, Mississippi’s Bancorp South Arena.
Alice Cooper said in a statement announcing the shows: “We’ve always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again. It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!”
Frehley added: “I’ve known Alice for over 30 years. We’re good friends, and we’ve toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock.”
