Heavy metal rocker Alice Cooper arrived in Israel Wednesday afternoon ahead of his Thursday, June 16 performance at Ra’anana’s Amphi Park.
His local publicist said that Cooper was smiling, in a great mood, and excited to be in Israel for the first time in his life.
Cooper is coming to Israel as part of his “Raise the Dead” 2016 tour.
He announced the concert back in March on a YouTube video, announcing his concert, “after many years” of trying to get to Israel.
Cooper promised to play “all my hits, and all my classic tricks,” adding that “you never know what might happen. It will be an historic night.”
Given that Cooper’s shows generally include guillotines, fake blood, boa constrictors and baby dolls, his Israeli fans are probably already staking out their spots in Ra’anana’s outdoor concert space to get a good view of the stage.
For now, however, the born-again Christian may be making the rounds of Jerusalem’s historic churches. Or perhaps he’s leaving that for the weekend, when school’s out.
