Alice Cooper, Horror Guild Living Legend, Coming To A Casino Near You

Shock rocker kicks off trek in support of Dragontown September 29 in Las Vegas.

Snake-hugging, chicken-tossing, "No More Mr. Nice Guy"-singing Alice Cooper will launch a fall tour to promote his latest album, Dragontown.

The veteran shock rocker will kick off the trek September 29 in Las Vegas

and wrap up November 9 in Pompano Beach, Florida, according to Spitfire

Records. The tour includes a special Halloween show at New York's

Roseland on October 31.

Dragontown, due October 9, is the follow-up to last year's Brutal

Planet and again finds Cooper collaborating with producer and

multi-instrumentalist Bob Marlette. Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd) co-produced

the new record. One track, "Triggerman," is currently available to download

on Cooper's official Web site (www.alicecooper.com).

In other Cooper news, the International Horror Guild will present him with

the Living Legend Award on Saturday for substantially

influencing the horror and dark fantasy fields. Cooper is the first musician to

be honored with the award, which has gone to authors such as Ray Bradbury and

Clive Barker in the past.

Cooper will receive the award at Dragon*Con, an annual science fiction,

fantasy, horror and comics convention, in Atlanta.
