The Godfather of rock, Alice Cooper is back with his latest release, a spectacular DVD/CD 2-Disc collection of his 'Theatre of Death' show filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in December 2009.
The show treats us to over 90 minutes of excellent entertainment from the master showman of rock and theatricals. As always a great band line-up, this time around we have the endless talents of Chuck Garric (bass), Keri Kelli (guitar), Jimmy Degrasso (drums) and Damon Johnson (guitar). Alice's vocals and seemingly limitless energy are, as always, astounding, and far outshine many much younger frontmen in other rock bands today.
Obviously very difficult to include songs from all of his albums having released many during his illustrious career since the 1970s, but we are treated to many favourites: School's Out, I'm Eighteen, Welcome to My Nightmare, Poison, Only Women Bleed, Dirty Diamonds, Billion Dollar Babies to name but a few, but no 'Elected' this time around.
The theatricals include not just one Alice execution but several throughout the show, and the nurse this time is portrayed by Tiffany Lowe.
Like all Alice Cooper shows you never want it to end, and this one is no exception.
This DVD/CD 2-Disc collection won't disappoint, both in value, entertainment and musical quality. Recommended for all, including those who have yet to discover the musical and theatrical talents of Alice Cooper.
