Review : CONCERT REVIEW: Alice Cooper Raises the Dead in Airway Heights, WA
FROM CONCERTCONFESSIONS.COM Northern Quest Casino – Airway Heights, WA – 11/17/2012
...The ninety-minute set was packed with classic Alice Cooper hits such as Welcome to my Nightmare, I’m Eighteen, Poison, and School’s Out. What really made it all worth it for me was the four-pack of songs that I had wanted to hear—the previously mentioned opener Hello Hooray, Under my Wheels, Be My Lover, and a song that forever is burned into my childhood memory as a result of watching Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives about a hundred times, He’s Back (the Man Behind the Mask).
The show had everything you would expect from an Alice Cooper show, including strapping on a gas mask and then morphing into a giant Frankenstein’s monster during Feed My Frankenstein. Of the many highlights throughout the night, one that will stand out for many is Cooper’s twenty-minute Raise the Dead tribute to Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Keith Moon by covering Break on Through (to the Other Side), Revolution, Foxy Lady, and My Generation, respectively.
Cooper is the original master of the macabre and has been influential to many artists over the past forty years. There are not many performers who can still work a crowd the way Cooper does, puting on one hell of a rock show. Backed by a great band, and with such an extensive catalog of hits, Alice Cooper brought fans to their feet with an amazing experience. For those of us who were lucky enough to be there, it was a show that we will remember for a long time.missing from some of his shows over the summer.
