Following the release of the 2017 studio album "Paranormal," which was the best chart-performing album by Alice Cooper in decades, the American rock legend took his live show all over the world, accompanied by "the best band he has ever had." After an entire year spent on the road, the "Paranormal Tour" ended in Paris on Dec. 7 at the world-renowned Olympia, a theater that is iconic in the truest sense of the word.
The Olympia, since opening in 1888, has witnessed changes in entertainment and pop culture for 130 years from the can-can through Édith Piaf to Johnny Hallyday and the Beatles and now... Alice Cooper!
This 90-minute rock show, "A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris," is a journey through Cooper's timeless creations: classics such as "Poison," "School's Out" and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" are alternated with hand-picked gems for the joy of true Cooper connoisseurs including "Pain," "Woman of Mass Destruction" and "Paranoiac Personality," the first single from "Paranormal."
The album captures a rock 'n' roll show at its peak and is one of the best live releases by Cooper, featuring his longtime band guitarists Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, bassist Chuck Garric, and drummer Glen Sobel in front of an excited audience.
The album will be released Aug. 31 on earMUSIC as two-CD digipak, two-LP gatefold (white and red LP), and digitally.
