Alice Cooper’s ludicrous halloween gig

Alice Cooper brought his bloodstained bag of tricks to the art deco surroundings of the Alexandra Palace in London, UK.

And the crowd – hundreds in fancy dress, from the Ghostbusters Marshmallow Man to Teen Wolf – were in for a treat.

Snake-hipped at 63, the man formerly known as Vincent Furnier, took to the stage in a spider-legged costume.

With a tight and – comparatively – youthful backing band in place, the elder statesman of shock-rock was free to twirl his baton to a thumping No More Mr Nice Guy, while Poison came close to raising the dead.

A 10ft monster staggered across stage to Feed My Frankenstein, while a singalong School’s Out with zombie kids segued neatly into Pink Floyd classic Another Brick In The Wall.

Deranged psychedelic legend Arthur Brown popped up during the encore – flames blazing from his bonce – for a run-through of his 1968 hit Fire.

Entertainingly ludicrous and ludicrously entertaining, a real ghouls’ night out.
