“For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs,” says Alice. “I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.”

ROB ZOMBIE AND THE FREAKS ON PARADE TOUR ANNIHILATE WEST PALM BEACH


Over 10,000 fervent metal enthusiasts gathered under the night sky to partake in an unforgettable spectacle headlined by none other than the hard rock and heavy metal legend, Rob Zombie. Alongside him, the stage was graced by the presence of the iconic Alice Cooper, the electrifying Ministry, and the raucous Filter. This past Sunday, West Palm Beach, Florida, became the epicenter of the Freaks On Parade tour, merging the realms of metal and masquerade in a perfectly orchestrated chaos.

Alice Cooper’s performance was nothing short of extraordinary. He effortlessly tamed a boa constrictor, outwitted a towering Frankenstein, and endured electric shocks with unyielding resolve. He escaped from a straitjacket only to face a guillotine, Cooper’s onstage antics reached their pinnacle when he was gleefully decapitated by Marie Antoideath, portrayed by his wife, Sheryl Cooper.

Boasting a rich legacy spanning more than half a century in the realm of rock ‘n’ roll stagecraft, Cooper dazzled the audience with a 70-minute tour de force. His show seamlessly wove together iconic classics like “I’m Eighteen” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy” with lesser-known treasures from his middle years. Commencing with the electrifying “Lock Me Up” from his 1986 album “Raise Your Fist and Yell,” Cooper found his artistic zenith midway through the performance, delivering a string of early-’90s hits, including “Hey Stoopid,” “Lost in America,” and “Snakebite.”

Cooper’s band executed flawlessly, with guitarists Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henriksen, and the virtuoso Nita Strauss delivering a tidal wave of sound. Bassist Chuck Garric’s harmonious backing vocals completed this musical powerhouse.

Nita Strauss stood out prominently among the young guitar maestros of her era, enthralling the crowd with a mesmerizing solo act that showcased her prowess in tapping, sweep-picking, and whammy bar wizardry. Her limitless enthusiasm and undeniable skill elevated her to an essential role within Cooper’s ensemble, and the audience couldn’t contain their excitement, showering her with thunderous applause when she made her entrance during the grand finale, “School’s Out.”


Cooper’s set sparkled with satire and vaudeville, while Rob Zombie’s performance epitomized unbridled extravagance. It was a sensory overload of scorching flames, grotesque demon babies, and twisting devil statues. Zombie, adorned in fringe, gyrated across the stage, commanding an industrial metal tempest that would befit the darkest depths of hell.

His set, characterized by droning dirges and horror movie aesthetics, was a relentless onslaught of raunchiness and grotesquery. Tracks like “Superbeast” and “Living Dead Girl” struck the perfect balance, creating a dangerous and devilishly fun atmosphere.

During “Thunder Kiss ’65,” Zombie had the audience light up their phones, quipping, “it’s hot as hell out here!” Indeed, Zombie’s blazing pyrotechnics were merely a fraction of the sweltering 106-degree heat that earlier acts Filter and Ministry had to contend with. Yet, they rose to the occasion, each delivering formidable performances. Filter, led by Richard Patrick, roared through hits like “Take a Picture” and “Hey Man Nice Shot,” while Ministry’s Al Jourgensen whipped the crowd into a frenzy with incendiary tracks like “Stigmata” and the climactic “Revenge,” performed for the first time since 1984.

Both opening acts displayed headlining-worthy prowess, setting the stage for an incredible evening of music. The show, as a whole, was a sensory feast, a symphony of visuals and sounds that left an indelible mark. I wholeheartedly recommend catching this tour if it rolls into your town.

The Freaks on Parade Tour will continue to rampage across the United States for the next month, concluding on September 24th in Phoenix. For those yet to experience it, this tour promises an unparalleled fusion of music and mayhem that should not be missed.

NITA STRAUSS BACK WITH ALICE COOPER FOR 2023 TOURDATES

Nita Strauss, the top-rated guitarist who had been with Alice Cooper for several years until she departed to do a Fall 2022 tour with Demi Lovato, will be returning to Alice’s band for his 2023 tour, Cooper’s management disclosed today.

The Alice Cooper North American tour, with an all-new show dubbed “Too Close For Comfort,” kicks off in late April in Michigan and continues through late September, including a handful of August stadium shows with Def Leppard + Motley Crue, followed by a co-headlining late summer “Freaks On Parade” tour with Rob Zombie.

Said Alice, “She’s Back! Nita asked for a leave of absence to work with someone else, something I always encourage my band members to do. I like them to challenge themselves and try new things. I’m thankful to my old friend Kane Roberts for stepping up and filling in for her, but she’ll be back with us for the new tour that starts up in late April. It’s going to be great to have her back.

Nita commented, “From the studio to the stage, it’s always an immense honor to make music with Alice Cooper!! I’m very excited to be rejoining the band on the road for the 2023 dates, and so I’ll see you on the road in April. Let the nightmare return!”
