Alice Cooper Launches Detroit Stories Tour In New Jersey

in News

Alice Cooper has put the show back on the road with Atlantic City, New Jersey getting the premiere of the ‘Detroit Stories’ show this week.

Three songs from Alice’s 2021 album ‘Detroit Stories’ have been added to the set including his Velvet Underground cover ‘Rock and Roll’ as well as his own ‘Go Man Go’ and ‘Social Debris’.

Alice Cooper’s 2021 album ‘Detroit Stories’ is a homage to his hard rock origins based on Detroit. Alice tells, “the funny thing about that was 1970 when we moved back there and ‘Love It To Death’ and ‘Eighteen’ and those songs when they broke out of Detroit, we would be playing the Grande Theatre and it would be Alice Cooper, The Stooges and The Who. It would be 1100 people. Big bands back then didn’t play arenas, they played ballrooms. You would look down and there would be Smokey Robinson and The Supremes and one of the guys from The Temptations. To them, it was just music. It didn’t matter if it was Soul Music or Hard Rock. If it was good everybody went to it. Detroit had a really good commonality with Motown. We knew all the guys from Motown, they knew us. There was no colour involved. If you were a musician you were a brother. You could walk into any R&B show and be totally accepted there”.
