Alice Cooper Announces Fall 2021 Tour With Ace Frehley
Two iconic musicians will share stages together this fall as the original shock rocker Alice Cooper will take out KISS guitar legend Ace Frehley on tour.
The trek will get underway Sept. 17 in Atlantic City and will crisscross the country before coming to a close on Oct. 23 in Atlanta, just over a month later. Dates for the run can be viewed at the bottom of this post.
Cooper, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, has been enjoying solid response for his latest effort, Detroit Stories, which is centered around the Motor City's effect on his music over the years. The record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Album Sales chart when it was released in February.
Frehley, also a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer from his time with KISS, issued his second covers release, Origins, Vol. 2, last year.
"We've always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again," says Cooper. "It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!"
"I’ve known Alice for over 30 years," added Frehley. "We're good friends, and we've toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock."
