Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors. Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie. With his influence on rock & roll long since acknowledged, there is little that Alice Cooper hasn't achieved in his remarkable career, including platinum albums, sold-out tours and any number of honors and career achievement awards.
Show will begin at 8 p.m. sharp.
Throughout the course of our lives, we are challenged to adapt and reimagine who we are in every moment. DIAVOLO brings a full evening experience in two parts, L.O.S.T. features DIAVOLO’s newest works – “Cubicle” and “Passengers”– and boldly tackles the essence of what divides, unites and inspires us to rise.
Take Me to the River features Grammy®-winners Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush and William Bell along with The Hi Rhythm Section, the Stax Academy Alumni Band, Frayser Boy & Al Kapone, plus Music Director Boo Mitchell. Following in the footsteps of the award winning 2014 documentary film of the same name, Take Me to the River is a live concert journey through the soul of American music, celebrating the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis that flourished during a time of pervasive discrimination and segregation. “…one of the best things we saw…stunning theatricality and dynamics…gorgeous…moving.” - Rolling Stone
