Every death metal, horror punk, shock rock, and costume wearing band in America owes Alice Cooper a debt of gratitude. Without him bringing electric chairs, fountains of fake blood, and corpse makeup onstage, rock and roll would be a much tamer genre. He hasn't been all shock rock and makeup though; his solo career alone spans 18 albums ranging from straight up rock to pop and experimental. On October 3, Alice Cooper is paying a visit to the Pompano Beach Amphitheater. His opening acts haven't been announced yet, so stay tuned to Crossfade for more information. Tickets go on sale August 20 through Live Nation.
