Alice Cooper is to hit the road in November 2017 for a UK stadium tour with support from The Mission and The Tubes
Alice Cooper has announced a UK stadium tour for 2017.
The 'No More Mr Nice Guy' hitmaker is to bring his freak show to The SSE Arena, Wembley on November 16, 2017, and four other dates including in Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester.
Joining the 68-year-old rocker on the road is This Mission and The Tubes.
For Wayne Hussey, who formed The Mission in 1986 with his Sisters Of Mercy band mate Craig Adams, supporting Cooper is a dream come true as they remember looking on in complete awe of his performance at the Reading Festival in England in 1987.
He said: "I remember during the summer of 1972 being on scout camp and hearing this new song on the radio that absolutely mesmerised me.
'School's Out' by Alice Cooper. Loved it, still do.
"Fast forward to 1987 and our first headline spot on the Friday night at Reading Festival. Headlining the Sunday was Alice Copper.
"And now we've been invited by Alice to join him on his UK tour next November."
Cooper's last UK show was at London's The O2 in June at Stone Free Festival.
Meanwhile, the 'Poison' singer is also working on a new album with his former band mates and is to record with legendary and long-time producer Bob Ezrin shortly, with his first studio album since 1973's 'Muscle of Love'.
November 2017 tour dates are as follows:
11 - Leeds - First Direct Arena
12 - Glasgow - The SSE Hydro
14 - Birmingham - Barclaycard Arena
15 - Manchester - Manchester Arena
16 - London - The SSE Arena, Wembley
