Last night at the National the RVA got to have an early Halloween. Rock legend Alice Cooper's latest tour rolled into town and the sell out crowd was treated to all they expected and more. Cooper’s latest tour “An Evening with Alice Cooper” was filled with all the theatrics, great songs and crowd responses you would expect from a legend in his fourth decade of touring and despite his years in the game of rock and metal Cooper is still a force to be reckoned with showing the younger generation of rockers that he is still the standard bearer for live shows. Last night’s concert was filled with hits spanning Cooper’s long career with such songs as “Hello Hooray”, “House of Fire” and “Million Dollar Babies” as well as a very well received tribute to fallen rockers from the past with songs from the Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and The Who. The crowd was wowed by the usual showmanship you would expect from and Alice Cooper concert which included a giant Frankenstein like creature, a few executioners, a steam punk demented nurse and of course a snake and giant guillotine. The crowd which spanned the decades of Cooper’s career, had of fans in their sixties to fans as young as five was also wowed by guitar goddess Orianthi Panagaris who is the newest member of Cooper’s band. Orianthi was stellar on solos and her stage presence was an added plus to an already great concert experience for fans of Alice Cooper and all in attendance.
