Freaks on Parade
Shock rock icon Rob Zombie and horror legend Alice Cooper are hitting the road once more as the Gruesome Twosome brings their electrifying tour, Freaks on Parade to haunt stages across the country this year. With support from Ministry and Filter, expect thrills and chills a-plenty from these two seasoned masters of fright!
No one defines shock rock like Alice Cooper. Cooper used violent (and vile) theatrics - simulated executions, the chopping up of baby dolls, and draping himself with a live boa constrictor - and explicit lyrics to become a controversial yet hugely popular figure in the early-and-mid 1970s. He's mellowed a bit since then, becoming somewhat of an elder statesman of the rock world, with an enviable back catalog of hits including 'School's Out', 'Elected', No Mr. Nice Guy' and I'm Eighteen'.
Hugely influenced by his love of horror, performer, screenwriter and movie director Zombie's metal music is a melting pot of horror and sci-fi references, samples from old b-movies and liberal use of electronica elements. And he puts on one hell of a show, replete with pyrotechnics and huge video screens.
