Believe it or not, tickets for the Alice Cooper/Ace Frehley concert at The Greek Theater Sunday night are going for as low as $19.50. You might want to upgrade to $33 to get into the B Section, but you will need to study the venue map carefully.
A peek at recent setlists from Alice Cooper’s current tour reveals only two songs from his 27th and most recent album, Paranormal, although the shows are billed as “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper.” I guess when you have this big of an oeuvre, you can’t be too self-indulgent.
It should be a headbanging night. Besides the classics that audiences demand, there is a good mix of hits and deep cuts from the 90s and 2000s. The thing all of these songs have in common is a more traditional, drum-forward rock sound. Pump your fist in the air stuff.
In previous concerts, the opener, Ace Frehley, has played a good number of KISS songs, as he penned more of them than you might be aware of. So get ready to rock, ’cause old school’s not out for the summer.
