Alice Cooper has announced his first headline UK tour in 5 years and will be heading to these shores in November 2017.

The seeds have been sewn this year, with Alice having just ended his more than 90 show 2016 tour with a final night at the legendary Pantages Theatre in Hollywood - joined for a celebratory 'School's Out' by rocker Butch Walker and fellow Hollywood Vampire Johnny Depp.

And America's Black Friday Record Store Day saw the instant sellout of a limited edition vinyl 45 of 'I'm Eighteen/Is It My Body' recorded live in Dallas in 2015 by Alice with fellow original Alice Cooper members Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce. The old high school and Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame friends had reunited for a surprise performance at local store Good Records.

Alice has also talked about his former fellow band members writing songs together for a new Alice Cooper album, being recorded with longtime producer Bob Ezrin this winter, due for 2017 release.

And for the UK tour, Alice is bringing two bands with him to reflect two of his best sides - outrageous theatrical controversy and the darker, gothic rock that Alice influenced.

The Mission were formed by two members of Sisters Of Mercy in 1986, Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams. Songs like Wasteland, Tower Of Strength and Deliverance became classics of the 1980's goth rock scene and beyond.

The Tubes come from the same art school, shock rock background as Alice Cooper and, originally, the same city (and actually the same schools) - being formed by Phoenix, Arizona natives and appalling some of the same UK cities in the 1970s.

Awesome!!! This band can still rock and are sounding better than ever. The Mission know their craft and can maintain a presence on stage. They have a good following and I feel when The Mission play Liverpool it is like a homecoming. Excellent. 🍺
