Alice Cooper at Beacon Theatre - 7/18/13
Alice Cooper

Behind all the shock rock makeup and theatrics, Alice Cooper has some undeniable rock classics like "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "I'm Eighteen," "Billion Dollar Babies," "Hey Stoopid," "Feed My Frankenstein," and of course "School's Out" (to name a few), all of which were heard at his hits-filled set at Beacon Theatre last night (7/18). Alice and co. also took a portion of the set for some of the covers they've been known to play, including The Doors' "Break On Through," The Beatles' "Revolution," Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady," and The Who's "My Generation."

Pictures of the elaborate makeup, costume, and boa constrictor filled stage show continue below...

Holy crap. That setlist BLOWS. Who the fuck wants to hear Alice Cooper do the most generic Q104.3 covers? Break on Through? My Generation? Why not play some deep cuts instead? Glad I didn't go to this.

Where does he play golf when he's in NYC? Dyker? Marine Park?

Alice should stick to the golf course at this stage of the game.

I'm 18 is a great song.

Cover of Break On Through, Revolution, Foxy Lady, My Generation
and Another Brick In The Wall.

Seriously? That is some stale baby-boomer bullshit.

these dudes are really making the jorts scene!

His material is great, but the choice of covers is bizarre. No deep cuts? I rather see him cover a Kings of Leon song than Revolution.

Most of the comments here are pathetic.
The show was awesome!
Total rock from beginning to end.
Anyone who wanted an evening of deep, meaningful music should have just stayed home, listened to Edie Brickell and weaved flower bouquets while doing shots of Jim Beam.

^did you go with jorts or cargo shorts?

Holy POOP!

He's one step away from playing Born to be Wild.

Is that one guy actually clenching his jorts between his ass cheeks? What's going on there?

Sorry i love Alice Cooper, his first 5-6 albums were huge for me. I even like that he threw in some stuff from Trash and Hey Stoopid. but there is NO EXCUSE for him playing covers - ESPECIALLY these, which are some of the most overplayed covers of all time. Foxy Lady?? Break on Through?? My Generation?? What is he, a fat banker on LI that does blues jams on the South Shore on Thursday nights? I expected better. To waste a half hour of his set on that is terrible, especially when he has one of the richest catalogs out there.

Yes 12:24, but the question remains.... jorts or cargo shorts?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2013 12:36 PM

Take those four covers out. Throw in: Be My Lover, Desperado, Generation Landslide and Long Way to Go and you've got an infinitely better set.

Why is the poster 100 bucks?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2013 1:43 PM

The poster is $100 because Alice signed them.

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

This show was awesome, as Alice always is! but i agree - could've lived without the cover songs. This is the first time i've ever seen him play covers, but the tour is called 'Raise the dead' so he is doing covers by dead artists.

I went to watch this thinking "Alice Cooper" this is gonna be great but instead I got some old guy with stupid outfits and a snake singing about I don't know what. I'm thinking to myself "this is what passes for balls in America?"

I think if you ask guys like Ezra Koenig and David Longstreth and all the people that come from our generation, we're kind of hoping Alice (so masculine) would just fuck off.

Aren't lighting bugs wonderful?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2013 5:50 PM

how do you know Alice actually signed the poster?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2013 7:01 PM

i'm guessing he no longer plays "refrigerator heaven" or "levity ball".

once he booted all the boys after like the 5th record he morphed into a walking joke.

long live neil smith.

He had some real bad management, and was way drunk back then.
