Welch, Minn. (January 21, 2020) Experience a rock show like no other when Alice Cooper brings his “Ol’ Black Eyes is Back” tour with Tesla, Blue Öyster Cult and Lita Ford to the 2020 Summer Concert Series at the Treasure Island Amphitheater on Friday, June 12.
Considered by many as “The Godfather of Shock Rock,” Cooper has built his reputation on his live performances. His dedication to his performances can be seen in his visually-stimulating shows filled with undeniable stagecraft. His unique voice and songwriting skills are heard in top 10 Billboard Hot 100 singles “Poison,” “You and Me” and “School’s Out.”
Cooper’s career began as the lead singer of the band that shared his name. The band produced Billboard 200-charting albums Love It to Death and Billion Dollar Babies. One of Alice Cooper’s biggest achievements was their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
Tesla burst onto the scene with the 1986 RIAA platinum-certified album Mechanical Resonance. Since then, the band released other platinum-certified albums and their most recent album, Shock. Tesla is also well-known for their trailblazing lyrics and ability to transition from hard rock to soft ballads.
Veteran hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult has had a momentous nearly five-decade-long career. Millions of albums sold and top-charting Billboard Hot 100 singles like “Don’t Fear (The Reaper)” and “Burnin’ For You” have contributed to the band’s longevity.
Rock and roll powerhouse Lita Ford found success in her teens with the all-female rock band The Runaways. She has held her own since braving the music industry solo. Ford teamed up with music icon Ozzy Osbourne on the hit single “Close My Eyes Forever.”
