ALICE COOPER RETURNS WITH A SPECIAL DRAGONTOWN:
Alice Cooper will be releasing the 2-CD set of Dragontown (Special Edition) on Spitfire Records on September 24, 2002. Bonus material on the album will consist of “Can’t Sleep, Clowns Will Eat Me” (previously unreleased in North America), live recordings from the Brutal Planet 2000 concert tour of “Go To Hell”and “Ballad Of Down Fry,” videos and a new “Brutal Planet 2002 Descent remix”
Dragontown, along with Brutal Planet (Spitfire), is the latest chapter in Alice Cooper’s long history of disturbing storytelling- one of anger and exasperation with society and a world’s preoccupation with greed, sex and death.
Cooper takes his “Descent Into Dragontown” show on the road beginning August 30th in South Dakota, continuing through the “Master of Theater Rock’s” signature holiday Halloween season, finishing up in Poughkeepsie on November 2. Alice will then take “Descent Into Dragontown”to Europe for the remainder of the year.
Cooper toured across the USA coinciding with the original release of Dragontown last year, in the wake of the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks. For many who were understandably preoccupied at that time, this represents an opportunity to catch up with Alice’s latest show and album.
