Alice Cooper brought New York City to a standstill on the morning of August 14th when he and his band performed on Fox & Friends All American Summer Concert Series.

Throngs of fans packed the Fox & Friends pavilion and lined the sidewalk surrounding the stage on 48th Street, just to get a glimpse of the “Shock Rocker”, who put on a six song mini-concert which included; “I’m Eighteen,” “Under My Wheels,” “Schools Out,” “Elected,” “Poison,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”

Alice did not disappoint fans who were standing in line since dawn to get a prime spot for the show. Being the master of macabre he pulled out many of his trademark ghoulish effects which included snakes, whips, bloody crutches, swords, balloons filed with confetti, and an a very un-goulish American Flag.

Sounds like fun, well it was!

Most in attendance today will tell you that Alice still embraces the rare grittiness and glam appeal he did decades ago.

Cooper is the ultimate performer and always gives his audience 110%. Witnessing today’s performance you would have thought he was playing Madison Square Garden!

To emphasize the point, he even had several wardrobe changes to fit each song which ranged from a black and red vaudeville suit for “No More Mr. Nice Guy” to a black leather ensemble with white top hat on “Schools Out”.

His band was tight and pumped and included: Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henriksen, Nita Strauss all on guitar, Chuck Garric on bass, Glen Sobel on drums.

Cooper and crew fueled an all out assault on the crowd, hammering the crowd with classic AC hits while standing shoulder-to-shoulder front and center stage; guitars raised high and mesmerizing the crowd of fans.


The high point of the show came when Alice performed “Schools Out” and walked on stage amidst a curtain of falling fireworks while wielding a Japanese Samurai style sword.

I must have seen Alice over a dozen times in my life, but today’s show will go down as a favorite and the most memorable one. Alice and his cohorts will be on tour in full theatrical garb, opening for Motley Crue this summer!
