The ’70s have been good to Alice Cooper. Not just the 1970s, when the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer first achieved international success. It’s also his age.

“I never thought I would be, at 70, in two touring bands. I haven’t slowed down the Alice Cooper band at all. I did 170 Alice Cooper shows this year and 45 with the Vampires.”

That would be the Hollywood Vampires, the celebrity rock ensemble Cooper co-founded with movie star Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. He also made a lot of new fans on Easter Sunday, when he played King Herod in the NBC telecast of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical “Jesus Christ Superstar — Live in Concert.”

On Oct. 5, Alice Cooper brings his “Paranormal” tour to the Palace Theater in Waterbury. It’s a venue he played previously 46 years ago, while on tour with the original Alice Cooper band’s fourth album “Killer.”

Asked in a recent phone interview if he had any memories of that show, Cooper laughs.

“If you’d have told us we played Waterbury in ’72, I’d be ‘Uhhhhhh…’ We played hundreds of shows that year, all around the world.”
