Alice Cooper has rolled out 14 North American spring dates playing throughout next April. Cooper kicks off the jaunt on April 1st in Peterbrorough, Ontario at Memorial Centre and wraps things up three weeks later on April 22nd in Portland, Oregon at Keller Auditorium. Rolling Stone reported Lita Ford will serve as the opening act for the 2020 leg. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 18th.

Cooper's "Ol' Black Eyes Is Back" tour is supporting his most recent releases -- 2017's Paranormal album, and his new EP Breadcrumbs, which in addition to one new song, features Cooper covering tracks by fellow Detroit legends -- including Bob Seger, MC5, and Susie Quatro.

Alice Cooper told us that the days of blowing an audience's mind with stage theatrics have really changed over the decades: "I don't think you can shock an audience anymore, really. I mean, CNN's more shocking than anything Marilyn Manson or I can do, because (laughs), they used to hang me onstage, now you see people really getting hung on TV. So the idea is just to bombard the audience with vaudeville-type of burlesque comedy -- but make sure the music is the basis of everything. I mean, you can't put icing on the cake without the cake. So a 10-hour rehearsal is nine hours on the music, and one hour on the theatrics."

Alice Cooper next performs on November 3rd in Fort Myers, Florida at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
