ALICE COOPER Announces Special London Shows

According to Metal Hammer, Alice Cooper will play two special shows on October 31 and November 1 at the Camden Roundhouse in London, England. 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.

For a period of five days only (ending August 7), Alice will be accepting video submissions of "sideshow and freak acts" to his web site, www.alicecooper.com. The best will be invited to a live audition on August 9 at The London Dungeon in London at 7 p.m. where they will "perform" in front of a panel of judges consisting of Alice himself, along with Nicky Horne and 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 October 31 and November 1.

Speaking to Metal Hammer, Alice said: "London has its freaks and we want to be the people to bring them out. In the U.K., Halloween isn't as big as it is in the States and we want to make it as big as Christmas!"

When Metal Hammer asked Cooper about what he wants to see from the forthcoming auditions, Alice said, "It doesn't have to be evil! I like bizarre things as much as I like seeing things that are evil. I've seen a couple of episodes of 'The X Factor', so I know you've got freaks in London and I've walked the streets of Camden thinking, 'I'd like to have that guy in the show!' I just want anything that's bizarre and makes you go, 'Wow!'…or 'Eeeurch!'; either's good with me."
