It should be quite a summer this year with Alice Cooper -- the original shock rocker -- and Marilyn Manson -- his modern-day equivalent -- teaming up on tour together. Their partnership took them to the Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet and we were able to speak with both musicians on a variety of topics, including stalkers, dangerous stage props and, of course, their mutual admiration for each other ahead of this summer's 'Masters of Madness' tour.
Almost exactly one year ago to the day, a storage facility which houses the Alice Cooper Archives was broken into. A number of items were stolen such as a large quantity of vinyl records, the original sculpture used to create Cooper's 'Hey Stoopid' album cover and perhaps most importantly, a John Richmond jacket which was worn by Cooper during his iconic cameo in 'Wayne's World.' Luckily for Cooper, one year after the burglary, the jacket has been found!
The rumors are true! Marilyn Manson has officially confirmed that he will be touring this summer with the original shock rocker Alice Cooper. Though a full itinerary has yet to be unveiled, Manson announced today (March 8) via his website that the trek is definitely happening along with revealing three tour dates.
Shock rock icons Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper are apparently heading out on tour together sometime in 2013. In a possible premature move by someone at Alice Cooper's camp, a poster of a 'Masters of Madness: Shock Therapy Tour' baring the faces of the two rock stars has been unveiled within Cooper's official website.
As Saturday bled into Sunday at Bonnaroo 2012, Alice Cooper took the stage at midnight for a 90-minute performance that turned many heads. Having shocked and rocked his way around the world for nearly 45 years as Alice Cooper, the iconic frontman delivered one of the most jaw-dropping performances of his career at the festival, covering the Lady Gaga hit, 'Born This Way.'
