Alice Cooper announces live album, ‘A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris’

Alice Cooper will release one of the performances from his 2017 Paranormal European tour later this summer with an 18-track live album titled, A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris. The famous rocker took the stage at Paris’ back on Dec. 7 of last year, as part of the global trek in support of his 27th studio album, Paranormal, which featured musical contributions from the original Alice Cooper Band as well as Deep Purple and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, just to name a few. The live album is reportedly scheduled to arrive via vinyl, CD and digital on Aug. 31 through earMUSIC.

Included on the show’s setlist that evening were some of Cooper’s biggest hits from his lengthy career including “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out.” The upcoming album’s announcement on Thursday also came with the release of “The Ballad of Dwight Fry,” one of Cooper’s 1971 singles which appears on the album, and can be partially heard in the Spotify stream below.

Even at the age of 70, Cooper continues to set the standard of being one of the hardest working names in music, as he still tours as his well-known villainous solo act in addition to a founding member of Hollywood Vampires. Cooper will start another lengthy North American tour early next month with an opening performance at the Wisconsin State Fair on Aug. 3. The tour is scheduled to run throughout the end of the summer months and into October, with notable stops at venues across the country including New York City’s Beacon Theatre and Colorado Springs’ Pikes Peak Center.
