Alice Cooper adds second Minneapolis concert


Thanks to audience demand, legendary rocker Alice Cooper is going to play a second concert at the State Theatre in July.

The Hennepin Theatre Trust announced Monday that Cooper will play the State July 15 in addition to his July 14 show.

Both concerts are part of the Cooper's "Raise the Dead" tour, and there will be no opening act.

The July 14 show is nearly sold out, and tickets for the second show go on sale Friday, the Trust says.

Cooper's career spans more than five decades, and his original five member group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

Dubbed the "King of Shock Rock," Cooper's wildly theatrical stage shows have everything from mixing blood, electric chairs and guillotines, to hangman’s gallows, snakes and monsters.

Cooper told KQRS in an interview last month that the "Raise the Dead" is named for drinking club he used to be in years ago called the "Hollywood Vampires," which included some famous fellow rockers who are all now dead.

As a tribute, the tour includes cover songs of some of the Hollywood Vampire members.
