Shock-rocker and Hall of Fame inductee Alice Cooper will bring his brand of horror, mayhem and debauchery to Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa on Nov. 26, a rare instance of hard rock invading the fine-arts complex.
The 65-year-old legend will make his Segerstrom Hall debut as part of his Raise the Dead Tour, sparing no expense for his macabre stage show.
A pioneering figure who was among the first (and definitely the best) to blend Grand Guignol theatrics with rough-edged rock, Cooper has since inspired generations of acts fascinated with the dark side, most notably Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, with whom he has embarked on Gruesome Twosome outings in the past.
Given a career spanning more than four decades, with roots in psych- and garage-rock dating back to the late ’60s, Cooper’s latest run will incorporate cuts from his most recent release, 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare, as well as some of his most famous anthems: “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Billion Dollar Babies.”
Tickets go on sale Sunday, Sept. 15, at 10 a.m. Prices start at $49 and are available exclusively via Segerstrom’s site or by calling 714-556-2787.
