Alice Cooper announces 2017 arena tour

Alice Cooper will be returning to the UK for his first headline tour in five years next year.

Kicking off in November 2017, Cooper will be joined by 80s goth-rockers The Mission and The Tubes across all five dates.

The Mission have stated that they owe a great debt to Cooper for influencing their sound, having since shared the Reading Festival headliner line-up in 1987.
