Motionless In White to join as support

Rock icon Alice Cooper and Grammy-winning hard rock band Halestorm have announced a co-headline amphitheater tour across North America this summer. Produced by Live Nation, the 19-city tour will kick off July 17 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, at the PPL Center and make stops in Detroit, Chicago and Houston, before wrapping Aug. 16 in Camden, New Jersey, at the BB&T Pavilion.

Motionless In White will support on all dates.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, March 8, at LiveNation.com. Citi is the official presale credit card for the tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Wednesday, through Citi's “Private Pass” program.

"We've played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band; can’t wait to get to the first show," Cooper said.

"We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on rock 'n' roll ... Alice Cooper," said Hale, frontwoman of Halestorm. "Alice is our ‘A’ in the ‘ABC's of Rock’ music, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School's definitely out!"

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Cooper will bring an all-new show for the summer 2019 tour. Dubbed "Ol' Black Eyes Is Back," the show will have a very different look than recent tours. New music from Cooper is expected in time for the tour, once again produced by Cooper’s longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who most recently produced 2017's acclaimed “Paranormal” album, featuring ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, U2's Larry Mullen Jr. and Deep Purple's Roger Glover, as well as original Alice Cooper band members Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce. 

Cooper's most recent release, the live album “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris,” was released by earMUSIC in 2018. In addition to recording and touring both on his own and with The Hollywood Vampires (with pals Joe Perry and Johnny Depp), Cooper continues his nightly syndicated radio show, "Nights With Alice Cooper," heard worldwide on more than 100 radio stations.

Grammy-Award winning band Halestorm released a fourth full-length album, “Vicious,” last year. “Vicious” earned the band a second Grammy nomination, for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song "Uncomfortable," the outfit’s fourth No. 1 at rock radio. Fronted by the incomparable Hale, named Loudwire's 2018 Rock Artist of the Year, Halestorm has earned a reputation as a powerful live music force, headlining sold-out shows and topping festival bills around the world. 

Regional show dates include:

  • Aug. 7, Canandaigua, at Constellation Brands–Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center: CMAC
  • Aug. 8, Bethel, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
