Alice Cooper Offers to Chop Off Motley Crue’s Heads
Cooper, who knows a thing or two about giving audiences a show to remember, sounds like he’s ready to reclaim his title as rock’s reigning guillotine enthusiast. During a recent interview with Triple M, he offered to use one of his favorite old stage tricks to help the Crue say goodbye for good after the last encore when they play their last show on Dec. 31.
“They finish up in the United States on New Year’s, and that’s their last gig,” he explained. “I told them, ‘Why don’t you let me kill you onstage? That finishes everything.’ Four guillotines, floomp! Done!”
It’d make for a heck of a finale — and also, as Cooper pointed out, a terrific opportunity to make some money by “[auctioning] off the heads on stakes.”
And speaking of money-making opportunities, Cooper’s got one of his own on the schedule: a pay-per-view airing of his ‘An Evening With Alice Cooper’ event at ACL Live in Austin on Feb. 12. He’s posted a video teaser for the show here, and tickets to attend in person are still available here. Details regarding how and where to order the online and cable pay-per-view stream will be posted soon.
