Alice Cooper to rock Me­mo­rial Cen­tre next spring

The Peterborough Examiner - - LOCAL -

Leg­endary rocker Alice Cooper head­lines the Peter­bor­ough Me­mo­rial Cen­tre on April 1. The con­cert, fea­tur­ing open­ing act Lita Ford, is part of a series of dates added to the ex­tended “Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back” tour, which launched in the sum­mer. Peter­bor­ough is the kick­off date of this new run of shows and the only On­tario per­for­mance. It comes af­ter Cooper takes the show to Aus­tralia and New Zealand. The rocker, whose reper­toire of clas­sics in­cludes “School’s Out,” “I’m Eigh­teen” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” has just re­leased “The Bread­crumbs,” an EP pay­ing trib­ute to some of his Detroit garage rock he­roes. The six new tracks fea­ture Detroit mu­si­cians, in­clud­ing Johnny (Bee) Badan­jek from the Detroit Wheels, Grand Funk’s Mark Farner and MC5’s Wayne Kramer. Ford shot to fame as the lead gui­tarist of the all-girl band The Ru­n­aways in the 1970s be­fore go­ing solo as a heavy metal per­former.
