Alice Cooper’s ‘Ol' Black Eyes Is Back’ Tour Will Head to Australia In 2020

The Godfather of Shock Rock is taking his tour Down Under. 

Alice Cooper’s Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back trek will visit arenas in Australia’s five biggest cities in February 2020, with homegrown rockers Airbourne and Wayne Kramer’s MC50 in support. 

Presented by TEG Live, the Rock And Roll Hall of Famer’s Australian jaunt will kick off Feb. 8 at Perth’s RAC Arena on February 8, moving through Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and wrapping up Feb. 18 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Cooper’s Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back show is currently rolling across North America, followed by a six-week tour of the U.K. and Europe, before returning to the United States for further dates in November.

The production incorporates a setting inside his Nightmare Castle, and features FrankenAlice, the new Billion Dollar Baby and a setlist which ticks off the classic hits along with a selection of deep album tracks and, of course, new music.

It’s a “brand-new show, an entirely new production — all new staging, all new props and everything,” Cooper told Billboard earlier this year. “It’s taking a lot of the stuff we know we have to do and a lot of the stuff people are not going to be expecting. So people who saw the last show and might go, ‘Oh, this can’t be as good as the last show’ — we’ll give them a better show.”

The ticket onsale starts Aug. 21 from Ticketek, with pre-sales open from Aug. 15 via Telstra Plus.

The tireless rocker has also been busy recording and performing alongside Joe Perry and Johnny Depp in the Hollywood Vampires, and he’s due to drop a mini-album The Breadcrumbs on Sept. 13, a set that’s said to be a tribute to his Detroit rock origins. 

Also, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Pretties For You, Cooper’s very first album. “I’m a healthy young man at 71,” Cooper told Billboard.
