Alice Cooper: ‘Welcome to My Nightmare’ singer is positively ‘Paranormal’

September 24, 2018 GMT

Alice Cooper will feature music from his 27th album, “Paranormal,” in a show at Waterbury’s Palace Theatre on Friday, Oct. 5.

The singer/songwriter and actor has been entertaining fans for more than 50 years. “Paranormal” came out in 2017 and features special guests such as U2’s Larry Mullen, Jr., as well as Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover, among others. Cooper will also perform such hits as “School’s Out” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”

“The Godfather of Shock Rock,” as he’s known, is famous for his over-the-top stage shows. They often feature such deadly devices as guillotines and electric chairs, not to mention slithering snakes and lots of fake blood. (With such a deep passion for the macabre, we can only imagine what he’s got planned for Halloween!)

Earlier this year, Cooper, 70, starred in NBC’s live television production of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” He performed “King Herod’s Song,” singing in his most mocking, rollicking way, “Prove to me that you’re divine, change my water into wine.” The audience was enthralled.

Palace Theatre, 100 E. Main St., Waterbury. Friday, Oct. 5, 8 p.m. $95-$58. 203-346-2000,
