Alice Cooper returns for New Zealand horror show

Alice Cooper, he isn’t 18 anymore, but his band aren’t letting down.

The rock royal is making a comeback with his 13th New Zealand tour. The shock-rocker is playing up his 13th New Zealand event, promising more of the horror inspired music he built a career on.

Cooper first played to New Zealand in 1977, now 40 years later two further shows have been announced for Wellington and Auckland.

Ace Frehley​, a founding member of KISS, would be joining Cooper in New Zealand. Both the artists are rock hall of fame inductees.

Alice Cooper performs at Auckland’s Trusts Stadium on October 27 and Wellington’s TSB Arena on October 28. Tickets go on sale April 28 at 9am on Ticketek.
