Tour Dates

The following is a comprehesive tour date archive including tour dates from the pre-Alice Cooper era through to Alice's most current tour. Ticket Stubs and Posters are displayed where possible.

If you know of a concert appearance by Alice that is missing from this collection of dates, please contact me with the details. I'm also always looking for scans of ticket stubs and posters...

Special thanks to Karl Speck, Brian Mcfadden, Steve Wall, Stephan Wendal, Lance hall, Adam Joffrain, James Cosper, Steve Maclennan, Ron Pesch, Mark Marovitch, Christophe Crompin, Mike Elder and everyone else that I'm shamefully forgetting to mention who has helped over the years.
