Welcome to My Nightmare in Columbus Ohio at the Express Live indoor/outdoor concert venue featuring the legendary Alice Cooper in the flesh. He was in town to help celebrate with local radio station Qfm96’s 40th Birthday Bash with An Evening with Alice Cooper. The timeless music and presence of the man, the myth, the legend, Alice Cooper brings with it a horror rock and roll vibe with the lead singer losing his head night after night. Like Frankenstein's monster coming to life, Alice appeared on stage, in a black cape, amidst the dazzling sparks of electricity raining down on him. The band came to life as the sparks ceased to fall with their first song, “Brutal Planet”, which made it apparent that they came to rock as only Alice Cooper can. Alice took charge, as he reached for his cane and microphone, as he has done since the early days working the crowd and starting the show in style. The triple threat of his guitarists Tommy Henriksen, Ryan Roxie and Nita Strauss are responsible for the wailing high notes, melodic sounds and fast finger work of these masterful musicians. The rhythm section of bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel bring the heavy and deep sounds to the musical equation that comprises the bands signature sound. Through fan favorite songs and legendary lyrical stylings, the Cooper catalog leaves nothing to be desired. From “No More Mr. Nice”, Billion Dollar Babies” and “Poison” to “Under My Wheels”, “Feed My Frankenstein” and “Welcome to My Nightmare”, fans never stop singing and rocking through the night. With all of the theatrics and allures on stage your senses are sent reeling to experience all that they offer to your eyes, ears and brain.

Ending the show with two of the best and most iconic Alice Cooper songs in, “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out”, gave the fans the anthems to sing in unison along with the band. As Iconic and timeless as the music is, it transcends cultures and generations leading to the bands mythical musical prowess and reputation to the point of Heavy Metal royalty. Without Alice there wouldn’t be bands like Kiss, Rob Zombie, Slipknot and the like as they are all products of his musical style and theatrical stage presence. Never miss an opportunity to check out the incredibly, intense and exciting spectacle that is Alice Cooper.
