Alice Cooper fans will not have to wait too long to catch the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer in 2017. The pioneering shock rocker will launch a U.S. tour in the spring, followed by summer dates in Europe and his first headline tour of the U.K. in more than five years in the fall.

The “School's Out” hitmaker made the announcement on Dec. 13 via a news release posted at his official Alice Cooper website. The dates will follow the iconic rocker's current work with longtime producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Lou Reed) in the studio on a hugely anticipated reunion album with the surviving members of the original Alice Cooper band.

The world romp will launch in the U.S. on April 21 in Biloxi, Mississippi, at  Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. Cooper and company will hit smaller markets missed during his massive 90-city 2016 North American trek with stops including Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Springfield, Illinois, before wrapping up the spring run on May 10 in Corpus Christi, Texas, at American Bank Center.  

The Hollywood Vampires star will then head overseas for dates in Europe. The summer trek will include festival stops on July 21 in Tromso, Norway as part of  Bukta-Tromso Open Air Festival and Aug. 3 in Szekesfehervar, Hungary, as part of Fezen Festival.

Cooper will then head to the U.K. for a headline romp with special guests The Mission and The Tubes. Produced by AEG Live, the fall arena tour will kick off Nov. 11 in   Leeds, United Kingdom  First Direct Arena and wrap up Nov. 16 in London at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

Presales for most U.S. dates will begin Tues., Dec. 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time with VIP and Meet & Greet packages available.  Tickets go on sale to the public for select U.S. dates starting Fri., Dec. 16 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
