ALICE COOPER To Headline Michigan Outdoor Festival

ALICE COOPER will headline an outdoor rock fest on Ojibway Island in Saginaw, Michigan on August 15, according to The Saginaw News.

Jerry Tarrants, WHEELZ program director at WILZ-FM, 104.5, and WYLZ-FM, 100.9, sponsors of the concert, said the stations would officially announce details of the event on air later today.

"I love this, coming on the heels of what people want to see in a 'cool' city," Tarrants told The Saginaw News. "How cool is it to get Alice Cooper back? This was all contingent on signing him to the show.

"And we have the island for a couple of years. Next time, I'd like Ted Nugent, and then I'm going for Bob Seger. If that's the last thing I do in my radio career, I want to get Bob Seger on the island."

Also on the bill are THE DIRTY AMERICANS and another act as yet unconfirmed.

Local bands can compete for a chance to open the show through an on-air battle of the bands,

"We'll hold the competition through July and announce a winner Aug. 6," Tarrants said.

Bands interested in the opening slot should send a CD and biography to Citadel Communications, 1740 Champagne, Saginaw MI 48604. Listeners will decide the winner on the Local Grudge Match competitions on sister station WKQZ-FM, 93.3.
