Alice Cooper and Deep Purple to co-headline Dallas concert

Even at the age of 69, rock legend Alice Cooper isn’t slowing down at all. He has been touring with his side-band, Hollywood Vampires, has a ton of concerts in 2017 on his own, and is now preparing to set out on a co-headlining tour with Deep Purple. Live Nation just reported that this co-headlining concert will hit Dallas' Starplex Pavilion on Aug. 19.

This tour will hit 19 cities across North America and starts on Aug. 12 in Las Vegas. The Dallas concert at the Starplex Pavilion is the only Texas show on the co-headlining tour, although Alice Cooper will be hitting Midland in West Texas for a solo concert on May 7. AXS has tickets available for that May show.

Alice Cooper is also rumored to be working on a new album and has the surviving members of his original band back together for this endeavor.

Deep Purple, meanwhile, is in the middle of their Long Goodbye Tour and also has a new studio album coming out on April 7 called Infinite. The Long Goodbye Tour stretches into 2018, which is also the 50th anniversary of the band. The band has said that they are ready to retire, at least from touring.

Tickets for this Alice Cooper and Deep Purple concert in Dallas are on sale now here. Tickets for the co-headlining concert at the Starplex Pavilion on Aug. 19 run between $18 and $278. Edgar Winter Band will serve as the opening act for the concert.
