Alice Cooper will be launching his very own theme park ride as part of this year’s Halloween festivities at Universal Studios theme park in Los Angeles, California.
The rocker’s very own ride, Welcome To My Nightmare will form a major part of Universal Studios’ Halloween extravaganza, running from September 23rd to October 31st.
Universal Studios’ creative director, John Murdy is delighted to work alongside Cooper to provide an exciting spectacle for Halloween. He said: “As a life-long Alice Cooper fan who’s been motivated and inspired by his craft, I am absolutely thrilled by this incredible opportunity. It’s a nightmare come true.”
Cooper was equally excited to endorse the Studios’ new Halloween ride as part of his forthcoming album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare. “[The ride] is a nightmare that will haunt visitors’ dreams for a long time to come… [It’s a] living horror movie, so there’s no place more appropriate to offer a preview of the new record,” said the 63-year-old singer.
Alice promoted his Welcome 2 My Nightmare album on the syndicated interview show Rockline, with host Bob Coburn, yesterday (Wednesday, September 7th). A replay of the show is here.
Welcome 2 My Nightmare album will be released on September 13th by Universal Music Enterprises.
The US Best Buy version will feature the following four exclusive bonus tracks:
'Under The Bed' (new studio track)
'Poison' (live at the Download Festival)
'No More Mr. Nice Guy' (live at the Download Festival)
'Black Widow' (live at the Download Festival)
Alice Cooper will treat fans to a special performance at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go on September 15th at 9pm. Cooper will take the stage of the legendary rock venue, on the Sunset Strip, for the first time since Alice Cooper the band performed there live in 1969 with Led Zeppelin.
"The Whisky had an option for a return engagement, but we got busy and it just slipped our minds. No, seriously, the Whisky gig we did with Led Zeppelin is something we all talk about to this day. It's going to be amazing to go back as a straight ahead LA bar band... We might even take requests. I figure, if we could do it in London, we can do it at the Whisky. And it's LA, so you never know who else might show up..."
Earlier this summer, Cooper played the 100 Club in London and Johnny Depp joined Alice on stage.
Cooper will be joined by Steve Hunter, Tommy Henriksen who co-wrote much of the new release; bassist Chuck Garric; drummer Glen Sobel; and guitar prodigy Orianthi, who will be making her debut with the band.
The band will be playing all the classics and songs from his new album 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare", the long-awaited sequel to his 1975 classic "Welcome To My Nightmare", which will be released on September 13th.
