Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

NiteLite Promotions and SMG-Managed Coronado PAC proudly announce
 
A PARANORMAL EVENING WITH ALICE COOPER

Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the original group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors.

Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper himself (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, including in his memorable recent performance as King Herod in NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live.

He continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for.

Tickets for A Paranormal Evening with Alice Cooper October 24 at the Coronado goes on sale Friday, April 13 at 10:00AM. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com, over the phone at 800-745-3000, at the Coronado PAC or the BMO Harris Bank box offices.
