Alice Cooper returns to the UK in November 2017 for his first UK headline tour in five years in an astonishing triple bill with The Mission and The Tubes. The tour takes in dates in Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and London.

Tickets will start to go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, right here. Bookmark that link now and keep checking back.

Shock rocker Cooper has started work on his next studio release and has reunited the surviving members of the original Alice Cooper Band for an upcoming album inspired by the sound of his 1971 release, 'Killer'.

Alice said at the time of that anouncement:

"You've got to see the straight jacket. You've got to see the insane nurse. We're actually taking some excerpts out of 'Welcome To My Nightmare' from 1975 because we haven't done some of that stuff in a while and we're putting it back in the show. I just said we haven't done that in a while. Let's put that in. So it's a fun show. It's always a fun show."

You can find out all about the new, forthcoming release and Alice's plans for it right here.

Wayne Hussey of The Mission said:

"I remember during the summer of 1972 being on scout camp on the Gower Coast and hearing this new song on the radio that absolutely mesmerised me. 'School's Out' by Alice Cooper. I remember walking around with the little transistor radio I had plastered to my ear every time that this song came on. Loved it, still do. Coincidentally included it in the 'intermission' music playlist that I put together for the recent Mission tour.

"Fast forward to 1987 and our first headline spot on the Friday night at Reading Festival. Headlining the Sunday that same weekend was Alice Cooper. Alice threw a party after the show and invited us but sadly we couldn't make it. I can't remember why now but if you knew the band at all at that time then you know damn well that for us to turn down an invitation to a party, any party but especially one thrown by the legendary Alice Cooper, we must've really had something else really important to do.

"And now we've been invited by Alice to appear as his special guests on his UK tour next November. We'd already turned down one invitation from Alice, we darn well ain't turning down another. I know it's nearly a whole year away but it is something I, and I'm sure the rest of the band, are already looking forward to with great anticipation."
