Bloodstock's latest coup is legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper who joins the cast next August for his only UK Festival
Bloodstock have announced their first headliner for next year’s event. Hot on the heels of his Welcome 2 My Nightmare tour, notorious shock rocker Alice Cooper comes to Catton Hall for his only UK festival appearance of 2012.
The godfather of theatrical rock needs no introduction, he's been at the top of his game for the last five decades and needless to say, such a prolific and legendary artist joining the Bloodstock line up is more than just a coup for festival organisers.
"As Bloodstock organisers but more importantly Huge fans of Alice Cooper, we are thrilled to have such an iconic artist close proceedings on the Sunday night! We have been after Alice for a number of years and are extremely excited to see him grace the Ronnie James Dio stage and guarantee this will be a performance not to be missed"
Festival booker Vicky Gregory
An Alice Cooper concert is always a memorable event, and there are few artists out there capable of putting on such a thrillingly entertaining show. Bloodstock attendees are in for quite a treat if the recent shows are anything to go by. From the moment he takes to the stage as a giant spider your senses are assaulted with fireworks, mock executions, simulated sex (with the dead of course), snakes, monsters and zombies, as Alice delivers hit after hit from his decades long career.
With a back catalogue that includes timeless classic such as “Schools’s Out”, “No More Mr Nice Guy”, “Welcome To My Nightmare”, “Hey Stoopid”, “Feed My Frankenstein” and recent single “I’ll Bite Your Face Off”, Alice’s set at will be impossible to not enjoy, and will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the festival’s history for many years to come.
With a world class headliner already in place and two more to be announced - as well as over 100 bands from across the world of hard rock and metal - this is a festival with a hell of a lot to offer.
Weekend camping tickets are available at £90 if booked before 15th December.
