A very loud and scary Saturday night!

On Saturday evening I sauntered down to Alexandra Palace to attend a concert of the great, Alice Cooper. It certainly a night to remember.

The night started off waiting in line. This was made all the more interesting by the effort many of those attending had put in to their outfits. Soon some zombies started to walk up and down the line. I don't know if they were concert goers but their makeup and costumes were fantastic.













Upon seeing them my trusty G11 was out and I began taking photos. I thought they were wonderful. I suspect they realised this as they seemed drawn to me. Quite a few people waiting didn't seem to like them but I thought they were great.

Once inside we were treated to the support act, the 'New York Dolls' who were pretty good - but I must confess to not knowing any of their songs.

The waiting and anticipation began for the main man, Alice Cooper. After what seemed like an age, where we watched the stage crew set the stage up, the volume seemed to have been quadrupled as Alice Cooper burst onto stage.









He played all his greatest hits and a new song and was incredible! Alice Cooper must be over 60 years old but he rocked and rolled for getting on for two hours. 'Poison' brought the house down with audience participation a must.

His support band were unbelievable. The two guitarists were amazing but I thought the drummer and bass player were on another level altogether.

I took copious photographs some of which didn't turn out too bad. The photos above that I took of Alice Cooper I am rather proud of as they were fairly in focus.

If you like your rock on the heavy side and you have not seen Alice Cooper live, I strongly urge you to do so!
