ALICE COOPER’ CHRISTMAS PUDDING ROCKS WITH DEE SNIDER, WARRANT AND LITA FORD
December 20, 2009
Larry Rodgers of AZCentral.com reports: Valley-based rock star Alice Cooper and his wife, Sheryl, tweaked the program of the ninth edition of their Christmas Pudding charity concert, making it more friendly for families and people who couldn’t stay for the entire four-hour-plus proceedings.
Organizers stacked the first half of the show with dancing, comedy, magic and young acts who had won a contest to perform on Friday, Dec. 18, at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix.
Cooper, who has performed with his band late in the event in past years, came onstage just after the intermission, during which concertgoers enjoyed Christmas pudding whipped up by Valley chef Mark Tarbell.
Harder-rocking acts such as Dee Snider, Lita Ford and Warrant didn’t come on until later in the evening.
That allowed non-night owls and groups with younger children to enjoy a large dose of fun before things got too late.
Cooper’s concerts, which are raising funds for the construction of a youth center on the campus of Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, have evolved into enjoyable old-school variety shows that have a bit of everything.
