Get ready for the Halloween Hootenanny Tour to come crashing through a town near you. Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper; the gruesome twosome will be back together again, doing what they do best this Halloween season. Special guests Murderdolls will be part of the mischief and mayhem. Joey Jordison will be pulling double duty and playing drums for Zombie and then playing guitar for his band Murderdolls. The tour kicks off in Los Angeles at the Gibson Ampitheatre on Thursday, September 30th. This diabolical line-up will be playing a total of 13 dates. That's right lucky number 13...
In other Zombie news, a devilish interactive experience is soon to be unveiled as Rob Zombie joins forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to create a new 3D maze. “Rob Zombie’s House Of 1000 Corpses: In 3D ZombieVision.” As part of the Halloween Horror Nights event, fans will experience the nightmarish world of carnage and chaos based on cult hit film “House Of 1000 Corpses.” Also this past Friday Hellbilly Deluxe 2 was released which features three brand new songs and a DVD with new live videos and a 2010 tour documentary.
In Alice Cooper's world a new album is in the works. A sequel 30 years in the making that has awoken from the dark depths of Cooper's psyche; Welcome 2 My Nightmare.
Murderdolls have also been up to no good recently, releasing their second album Women and Children Last. After an 8 year break they had plenty of time to come up with a super controversial album title. Setting the title aside, this album rocks and the Murderdolls will be the blood-red icing on this infernal layer cake of music.
The tour will be a carnival for the senses, featuring elaborate multimedia stage shows that cater to the lusty and horrific experience that these artists bring to the stage. Get ready to be rocked into a dark theatrical nightmare as you experience the illusive visions of Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper. Down becomes up and up becomes sideways and you get the feeling that there may be as many tricks as there are treats on the Halloween Hootenanny tour. The closest date to Detroit will be in the Chicago area.
