I don't know if they are known outside of Canada, but here's a sampling of their song You Don't Know What It's Like which they did sing at the show.
Their set was pretty decent and they played hard, but everyone was there to see Alice. Now, I love going to concerts and seeing bands play live, and you get the run-of-the-mill regular folks who may wear a band T-shirt, but some fans are so hardcore, it's weird. There were people with make-up on and some in costume. One girl had on a top hat, tails, gloves, make-up, a fake snake - it was like being at The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Anyhow, we had excellent seats. And Alice rocked the house!
For a while, he was touring and doing a "garage band" type of show. But now he's gone back to the Alice we know and love - shock rock with all the antics & drama.
He sang almost non-stop hit after hit, including some of my favorites Be My Lover, Feed My Frankenstein, Welcome To My Nightmare, School's Out, on and on. The encore was great, Billion Dollar Babies, Poison and a spoof on the upcoming election with Elected. (Click the link on any of the songs to see the video on YouTube.) The show was absolutely AMAZING!! The whole thing.
He was total pro and if you've never seen Alice Cooper live you MUST! This was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. I'm not kidding. We're all friends here, so trust me when I say it was fucking phenomenal. Just awesome! As we were leaving I was hearing only positive comments from the other concert-goers.
So what did we eat before heading off to an evening of live music to give us the energy to rock and roll properly?
Take what you see in this photo and make it into this -Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta with Kalamata Olives & Capers from Vegan a Go-Go. What a yummy dish! And so easy. Served with a salad and some bread, it was a "rockin'" meal. This is another recipe I highly recommend you try. I added the optional vegan cheese, but it would be just as good without.
I hope everyone has a terrific weekend. To all my Canadian blog pals, Happy Thanksgiving. And don't forget to hit the polls on Tuesday and cast your vote for your favorite candidate. If you don't vote, you have absolutely no right to bitch about the government.
