Alice Cooper Plans "Black Eyed" Masquerade Party For New Year's

If you have yet to make plans for 1999's swing into 2000 and you're fond of Alice Cooper, have we got a night for you.

The rocker will be ringing in the New Year at his Alice Cooper'stown restaurant in Phoenix, and he's inviting his fans to join him. Cooper will perform with his band at what is being billed as a "Black Eyed" (as opposed to "black tie") masquerade party. He's also promising a gourmet feast, a champagne bar, and "a few surprises," noting that he has invited some special guests to join him on stage.

The celebration begins at 8 p.m. and runs through 2 a.m. (MT), and Cooper suggests formal attire with a masquerade theme.

Of course, tickets aren't exactly cheap at $500 a pop, but that includes the concert, dinner, a gift, an autographed backstage laminate, party favors, and door prizes including a limited edition bottle of Samuel Adams Millennium Ale in a cherry wood box and personally signed by Jim Koch (valued at $1000).
