ALICE COOPER, WHITESNAKE To Team Up For German Dates

According to a posting on the ALICE COOPER fan site SickThingsUK, Cooper will team up with WHITESNAKE for the following German shows in November/December:

Nov. 18 - Mnchen, Germany - Olympiahalle
Nov. 20 - Hannover, Germany - AWD-Halle
Nov. 21 - Essen, Germany - Grugahalle

Nov. 29 - Stuttgart, Germany - Porsche-Arena

A brand new ALICE COOPER track, Vengeance Is Mine, is available for streaming on his MySpace page. The song comes off the rock legend's forthcoming album, "Along Came A Spider", due on July 29 via SPV Records.

Co-produced by Danny Saber, Greg Hampton and Alice himself, "Along Came A Spider" manages to marry both vintage and modern-day Alice. As theatrical as ever, the album is a sonic combination of familiar Alice musical elements from albums as diverse as "Billion Dollar Babies" and "Brutal Planet", with the storytelling of "Welcome To My Nightmare", capturing the historic dark side of Alice in peak form, an instantly recognizable presence that will be welcomed by his fans. Joining Alice on the album are members of his touring band longtime Alice drummer Eric Singer, bassist Chuck Garric, and guitarists Keri Kelli and Jason Hook, with additional contributions from others, including Saber, Hampton, and renowned backing vocalist Bernard Fowler. Slash also lends some guitar style to "Vengeance Is Mine".

WHITESNAKE will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline", hosted by Bob Coburn, on Wednesday, September 3 at 11:30 p.m. EST/8:30 p.m. PST. Fans can talk live with WHITESNAKE by calling 800-344-ROCK (7625). To find a station near you or to listen to the show live via the Internet, go to www.rocklineradio.com.

WHITESNAKE's new album, "Good To Be Bad", was released through SPV/Steamhammer in Germany on April 18, the rest of Europe on April 21 and it came out in North America on April 22. In addition to the regular jewel-case version, a limited-edition two-disc set contains an extra CD in a cardboard sleeve, as well as a poster, photocard and sticker.
