Alice Cooper reunites original band for UK tour

Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith will join Alice Cooper on his UK tour later this year

Alice Cooper will tour the UK later this year with original band members Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith.

The shows will get under way at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on November 11 and wrap up at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on the 16th of the month, with stops in Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester also planned.

The original lineup will perform mini-sets every night, with Cooper's main lineup playing throughout the rest of the night.

The trio appear on select tracks on Cooper’s upcoming album Paranormal.

Cooper says: “When the original band broke up in 1975, there was no bad blood. There were no lawsuits – we had just burned out the creative process. We had gone to high school together and had recorded something like five Platinum albums in a row.

“We were never out of sight of each other for 10 years. Everybody just went their own way. Neal, Dennis and I always stayed in touch. Mike disappeared for a while and Glen Buxton passed away in 1997, which was a big blow.

“But last year Neal called me up and said, ‘I have a couple of songs.’ I said, ‘Great, bring ‘em over.’ Then he said Mike was stopping by, so I had them come to my house and we just worked on a few things for a week. Then Dennis called up and said, ‘I got a couple songs.’ So, I thought, ‘Hey let’s do this!’ When you listen to the record, it just fits right in.”

Last week, Cooper released Paranoiac Personality from the new album which also includes guest appearances by U2’s Larry Mullen Jr, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.

Paranormal will launch on July 28 via earMUSIC on 2CD Digipak, 2LP, limited edition box set and on digital formats.

Cooper is currently on tour across the US. Find a full list of tour dates below.
