Hot on the heels of his “Welcome 2 My Nightmare” tour, notorious shock rocker Alice Cooper has been confirmed for next year’s edition of the Bloodstock Open Airfestival, set to take place August 10-12 at Catton Hall in Walton On Trent, Derbyshire, England.
Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand for the last five decades, the godfather of theatrical rock needs no introduction, and needless to say, organizers are delighted to have such a prolific and legendary artist join the Bloodstock line up. Festival booker Vicky Gregory comments: “As Bloodstock organizers, but more importantly, huge fans of Alice Cooper, we are thrilled to have such an iconic artist close proceedings on the Sunday night! We have been after Alice for a number of years and are extremely excited to see him grace the Ronnie James Dio stage and guarantee this will be a performance not to be missed.”
An Alice Cooper concert is always a memorable event, and there are few artists out there capable of putting on such a thrillingly entertaining show. Bloodstock attendees are in for quite a treat if the recent shows are anything to go by. From the moment he takes to the stage as a giant spider your senses are assaulted with fireworks, mock executions, simulated sex (with the dead of course), snakes, monsters and zombies, as Alice delivers hit after hit from his decades long career.
With a back catalogue that includes timeless classic such as “Schools’s Out”, “No More Mr Nice Guy”, “Welcome To My Nightmare”, “Hey Stoopid”, “Feed My Frankenstein” and recent single “I’ll Bite Your Face Off”, Alice‘s set at Bloodstock will be impossible to not enjoy, and will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the festival’s history for many years to come.
With a world-class headliner already in place and two more to be announced — as well as over 100 bands from across the world of hard rock and metal — there is no festival offering better value, with four day weekend camping tickets available at just £90 if booked by December 15.
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
Ronnie James Dio Stage
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY
Sophie Lancaster Stage
