HALLOWEEN NIGHT OF FEAR
EMBARGOED UNTIL MONDAY 2ND AUGUST 9.00AM
It is more than 40 years since Alice Cooper pioneered Shock Rock, and now he is pushing the boundaries of acceptability and decency once more!
On October 31st and November 1st Alice will perform two very special and unique Halloween shows at The Roundhouse, London. For these performances, Alice will be joined by world-renowned alternative performer Jim Rose (of the infamous Jim Rose Circus) as well as Zodiac Mindwarp and The Love Reaction.
But wait! The line-up is by no means complete, nor depraved enough yet. Alice is seeking new performers to enhance these ghoulish shows. Think circus sideshow, think freaky, think unbelievable, shocking and totally weird. Nothing less will impress the master of all things horrific!
For a period of 5 days only (ending 7th August), Alice will be accepting video submissions of ‘sideshow and freak acts’ to his website (www.alicecooper.com). We know Britain’s Got Talent, but has Britain Got Freaks???? The best will be invited to a live audition on 9th August at… The London Dungeon, 28-34 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2SZ at 7.30pm where they will ‘perform’ in front of a panel of judges in what will surely be the most bizarre talent show this country has ever seen! The panel will consist of Alice himself along with Planet Rock’s Nicky Horne and Time Out’s Tim Arthur, plus others to be announced. The freakiest and most outrageous sideshows will then become part of Alice Cooper’s Halloween Night of Fear at the Roundhouse on 31st October and 1st November.

Jim Rose: The Jim Rose Circus is a modern-day circus freak show, founded by Jim Rose in the early 1990’s and which found fame during Lollapalooza in 1993. His show features a mixture of the bizarre, the comic and the repulsive… and has since achieved world-wide cult status.
Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction are renewing their association with Alice Cooper, having toured with Alice in 1988, a year after they achieved a top 20 with “Prime Mover”. Zodiac Mindwarp also co-wrote “Feed My Frankenstein” for Alice.
