Alice Cooper to Perform with Original Band at Rock Hall Induction
Alice Cooper—along with a few others—snagged the honor of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He plans to play at the induction ceremony with his band’s original line-up March 14 at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith will join Cooper to fill out the lineup. Glen Buxton won’t be able to make the performance for obvious reasons. “I don’t think Alice would wear a tux unless it was a mirrored one,” Cooper told Rolling Stone. "And we’re trying to figure out, if we do ‘Schools Out’ do we send balloons full of confetti into the audience? I think so. I doubt if there’ll be a snake there though.
So could this mean a full-fledged, original lineup tour? “I think it is inevitable,” Cooper continued. “We have kind of been looking for an excuse to do that anyway. Why not do 4 or 5 major cities, Detroit especially since that’s where we broke out of. Los Angeles, New York, London, Toronto. Those were like the five cities where we got our biggest push. We might do that in the spring.”
Fuse will broadcast the event live March 14.
