Alice Cooper to Release ‘Raise The Dead – Live From Wacken’

Alice Cooper to Release ‘Raise The Dead – Live From Wacken’

(Ultimate Classic Rock) - Alice Cooper‘s Aug. 3, 2013, concert at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany, will soon be available for mass consumption. ‘Raise the Dead – Live From Wacken’ will be released on Oct. 21 as a CD and DVD combo.

Featuring 22 songs — including covers of the Doors‘ ‘Break on Through,’ the Who‘s ‘My Generation’ and Pink Floyd‘s ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ — the DVD spotlights Cooper’s legendary stage show, complete with the famous guillotine. In the above video released to promote ‘Raise the Dead,’ Cooper describes how the concert was conceived to be a three-act musical, with equal parts comedy and horror.

“We’re not going there to say, ‘Gee, I hope you like us tonight,’” Cooper says. “We’re going there with the attitude of grabbing ‘em by the throat and not letting ‘em go.”

‘Raise the Dead – Live from Wacken’ is the first offering of a new series comprised of performances from the Wacken Festival. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wacken Foundation, whose goal is to supporting the growth of new hard rock and heavy metal bands.
