In the new video report below from Artisan News, ALICE COOPER talks about sharing the stage with MÖTLEY CRÜE during The Final Tour, what he thought of the band when they broke out in the early 1980s, and what constitutes good rock and roll.
On January 29th, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and Alice Cooper were featured guests on the San Francisco rock station 107.7 The Bone. They discussed their upcoming tour on the Lamont And Tonelli Show; a clip is available below:
On Tuesday afternoon (January 28th), Mötley Crüe held a press conference in Los Angeles confirming their retirement, as well as a 72-date North American tour alongside Alice Cooper. Cooper checked in with the following:
“Hello my Loyal Sickthing,
It’s Me, Alice Cooper here! As you no doubt have heard, Motley Crue has announced their final tour, with yours truly as Special Guest! We’ve never done a tour together which is something I’ve always wanted to do. This was our last chance to tour together, and it’s your last time to see them live! I, on the other hand, am booked into the next century.
The news caused a frenzy of folks looking for information. In fact, the response yesterday was so overwhelming that the demands on AliceCooper.com were great enough to take the site down for a short time immediately following the press conference. Sorry if this caused any inconvenience, and though it was a bit of a bummer at least we’re not signing people up for health insurance… yet! For the time being we have suspended the membership features on the website due to the high traffic. My technical folks tell me that we’ll be reinstating that in the near future.
Back to the music – I’m really looking forward to these shows. This is really the shot in the arm to the world of rock that this summer really needs! We’re going to give Motley a run for their money; I’m not letting them off easy! You can expect a typical Alice Cooper show with executions, monsters, reptiles, and the occasional surprise.
