ALICE COOPER will embark on the "Bare Bones" tour in July, featuring nothing more than the instruments, the music and the musicians making it. The trek, which runs July 12-August 10, will allow Cooper to take his music to several markets previously unable to accommodate Alice's elaborate stage-show.
The "Bare Bones" tour will immediately follow the recording of a new as-yet-untitled album, due for release through Spitfire Records this fall, and a week of shows in Europe in early July. Alice will be performing many of his classic songs that, without major stage set and props, will allow the music to speak for itself.
Backing Alice on this tour will be longtime band members Eric Dover and Ryan Roxie on guitars and Eric Singer on drums, plus new bassist Chuck Garric. In the spirit of the stripped-down "Bare Bones" tour, this will be Alice's first tour in many years to forego keyboards.
