Alice Cooper Concert Review, Austin, TX, August 21, 2016

with 2 comments

Alice rolled into Austin again for the 3rd time in 2 years…and there’s nothing wrong with that!  I’d go see him every week if I could.

As it was last year, we were served an evening with just Alice Cooper.  I was quite pleased to see that the setlist was different for this tour.  I ended up with 3rd row seats at stage right on Ryan Roxy’s and Chuck Garric’s side.  Ryan pitched a pick perfectly to me towards the end of the show.

Overall it was great and Alice’s voice was in good condition and his backing band was as solid as ever.  One of these days I’ll get Garric and Hendrikson added to The Book.

The only down side to the show was the amount of fucking camera phones being held up the whole show.  Don’t get me wrong, I will snap some shots but I don’t keep my phone out and held up the whole show.  It was really annoying.  But I digress.

Highlights would be Ballad of Dwight Fry, Elected, The World Needs Guts and a good rendition of Ace of Spades.  It was a strong set overall.

I used a couple of my own photos as well as some from Christie O. and John A.  Thanks!

  1. Hey, I was there too! Our seats would have been a few rows behind you, but I won KLBJ’s pre-show thing and got upgraded to a suite up on the mezzanine.

    Fantastic show. And yeah, the Ace of Spades cover was off the hook!

    I agree with you about the phones. Hell, a few years ago at an Overkill concert, some dude was right up in Blitz’s face the whole time with a fucking iPad. An iPad!
