In Cooper’s 40 year career – from his debut album Welcome to My Nightmare to 2010’s Along Came a Spider – the singer has been a trail blazer for generations of artists that include the NY Dolls, KISS, Nine Inch Nails and Motley Crue.

“Pushing boundaries puts this iconic rocker in his element and has garnered him a reputation as the godfather of rock-concert-theatrics,” states the K-Rock website. “Alice continues to entertain audiences across the globe with his Vaudeville-like antics.”

Fans in the Kingston area can also hear Cooper host his syndicated radio show “Nights with Alice Cooper” on the weekend edition appearing on FM96 every Saturday morning from 9am to 2pm – where he shares stories from the road, interviews celebrities and plays tunes picked by Alice himself.

But on Monday, fans can see Alice Cooper in person as he brings his guillotines, gallows, electric chairs and fake blood to the K-Rock Centre.

Doors open for the concert concert at 7:00 pm and the show gets underway at 8:00 pm.  Some tickets are still available for purchase directly from the K-Rock website.

UPDATE : K-Rock has posted photos from the concert – including a sound check by opening act Anvil and playing on stage – plus a shot of Alice Cooper with the Canadian Flag (right) and with band members performing for the audience.
