Alice Cooper and Deep Purple are set to head out on a tour together later this year, with special guest, the Edgar Winter Band.


Cooper, known for his distinctively raspy voice and shows that often feature guillotines, electric chairs and fake blood, is considered by many as ‘The Godfather of Shock Rock.” He draws inspiration from horror films and garage rock to craft a grim and morbid style of rock intended to, well, shock people.

Deep Purple, a rock band from Hertford, England, are considered by many as pioneers of heavy metal and modern rock. They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as “the globe’s loudest band” for their concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre.

The team is scheduled to start their tour in Las Vegas on Aug. 12, and will wrap up on Sept. 10 in Cincinnati. They plan to stop in 19 North American cities, and make a brief stop in Canada on Sept. 2, when they’re set to play in Toronto.
