Alice Cooper will once again serve up his unique brand of shock-rock as musical guest Oct. 31 on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will appear on the popular late-night talk show in continued support of his latest chart-topping studio album Paranormal, which dropped on July 28 via Earmusic.
AntiMusic reports on Oct. 30 that rock's favorite boogieman will be accompanied on the special Halloween broadcast of the popular late-night talk program by actress Kirsten Bell and fellow rocker Dave Grohl. Cooper is making a triumphant return to the show after closing out Kimmel's 2016 Halloween special with a hilarious and eye-popping version of his 1972 hit single “Elected."
The show will air on Tues., Oct. 31 via ABC. For more details on the program, click here. Fans can can check out the "School's Out" hitmaker's performance of “Elected” on last year's Halloween episode above.
Cooper's appearance follows his announcement earlier this month of a 2018 winter tour of North America, which launches March 1 in Windsor, Ont., at The Colosseum at Caesar's Palace and will wraps up March 29 at Indianapolis at Murat Theatre. Dubbed “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper,” the North American romp will be proceeded by a tour of the U.K., which launches with a two-night stand Nov. 8 – Nov. 9 in Dublin, Ireland, at Olympia Theatre and will feature a handful of reunion dates with the surviving members of the original Alice Cooper Band, starting Nov. 11 in Leeds., U.K., at First Direct Arena and wrapping up Nov. 16 in London at Wembley at the SSE Arena.
Paranormal is Cooper's 27th studio album and features 10 tracks along with a special two-song mini-album, recorded with surviving members of Cooper's original band. The star-studded album is available here in 2-CD, digital and vinyl formats.
