Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST), Brian "Head" Welch (KORN), THE TUBES, Bruce Kulick (KISS), John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE, UNION), Kip Winger (WINGER) and Orianthi are among the musicians who performed last night (Saturday, December 17) at the original shock rocker Alice Cooper's eleventh annual Christmas Pudding concert on at Comerica Theater in Phoenix, Arizona. Proceeds benefit Alice's charity, which is called Solid Rock. They are building a much-needed music-oriented teen center for the Phoenix area youth. The youth center called The Rock will include a coffee house, music venue, and many other music-related activities and will open next spring.

According to a review by Jason P. Woodbury of the Phoenix New Times, "Halford rammed through PRIEST classics like 'Breaking The Law' and 'You've Got Another Thing Coming'." Backed by young bucks from Cooper's band, "he joked about being almost neighbors with Cooper in Paradise Valley, and that he was glad to be home while his PRIEST bandmates 'froze back in London.'"

Cooper, backed by an excellent band that includes longtime associate Steve Hunter and Orianthi, "tore through Cooper classics like 'No More Mr. Nice Guy', 'Under My Wheels', 'I'm 18' and 'Billion Dollar Babies'. Cooper's voice was in good form, and the band was energetic."
