The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that Alice Cooper will make an appearance at The Homer Mill — a haunted house, restaurant and arcade — in Homer, Michigan on October 11 from 7 to 10 p.m. His visit will strictly be a meet-and-greet. He is not expected to sing.
Homer Mill owners Lance and Susan Cuffle were able to hook up with Cooper through a Colorado-based haunted house prop company they hired to help with their new business.
Ed Edmunds, owner of Colorado-based Distortions Unlimited, had hired Cooper years ago for appearances at Brutal Planet in Denver, a haunted house theme park.
"It's incredibly unusual, in a small town, to have Alice Cooper show up," Edmunds said.
Up to 300 VIP tickets and 800 regular tickets for Cooper's appearance will go on sale Thursday, Lance Cuffle said.
The restaurant portion of the old mill is still under construction, but Cuffle said the haunted house will be open to all Cooper ticket holders.
Cooper's popularity has revitalized recently with his new nationally syndicated radio show, "Nights with Alice Cooper". WMMQ-Lansing 94.9 FM carries the show each weekday night from 7 p.m. to midnight.
Best known for his on-stage theatrics, Cooper is quite intelligent and humble, Edmunds said.
"He is not a freak or anything," Edmunds said.
