Alice Cooper Headlining Brennan Rock & Roll Academy Benefit Show
Few schools can land this type of lineup for a benefit show: Robby Krieger from the Doors, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer from Kiss, Sebastian Bach, and Warrant guitarist Joey Allen. Alice Cooper will headline the Thursday night concert to celebrate the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls, S.D. It's just one day of an almost week's worth of headliners.
According to ABC News, Night Ranger will kick off the series on Tuesday, and comedians Louis Anderson and George Lopez will headline on Wednesday. Over the weekend Vince Neil and Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy will perform.
All shows are sold out. The new school is part of the Boys and Girls Club of Sioux Falls, and it offers music education programs to kids in Sioux Falls and surrounding towns. The focus is instruments used to rock, hence the rock lineup. The proceeds from the benefit shows will go to the Boys and Girls of the Sioux Empire.
In addition to learning instruments students at the Brennan Academy will learn performance and business skills from instructors. Chuck Brennan is the academy's namesake. The school's official website describes the Sioux Falls native's significant industry experience, including promoting shows for Cooper and Kiss.
