In a mix that blends … well, old and new, Alice Cooper and Halestorm will embark on a big co-headlining tour this summer, it was announced on Monday. Motionless in White will support.
The two acts have a bit in common, given their shared festival history:
“We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band, can’t wait to get to the first show,” said Alice Cooper.
“We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on Rock n Roll…Alice Cooper,” said Lzzy Hale, frontwoman of Halestorm. “Alice is our A in the ABC’s of Rock music, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”

Cooper, still a very active touring act these days, is bringing an entirely new stage show to this tour, which carries the name “Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back,” and it’s expected that the legendary shock-rock icon will release new music in time for the tour as well.
Halestorm, meanwhile, has amassed a reputation as being a killer live band over the years, and just released its fourth full-length album, Vicious, in 2018.
