Alice Cooper To Release 'Welcome To My Nightmare Special Edition' DVD In September
Alice Cooper's "Welcome To My Nightmare Special Edition" DVD will be released on September 8 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The DVD features the 1975 TV special "Alice Cooper: The Nightmare", now available on DVD for the first time, along with the 1976 "Welcome To My Nightmare" concert film.
Aired on ABC in the U.S., "Alice Cooper: The Nightmare" showcases every song from the legendary "Welcome To My Nightmare" album, which had just been released at the time. With Cooper taking on the role of Steven, and Vincent Price serving as The Spirit Of The Nightmare, this special was a unique introduction to his new album, drawing fans even further into the dark fantasy.
Melding horror, theater, and rock music, Alice Cooper's "Welcome To My Nightmare" was a stage show the likes of which was never seen before. Hits and classics songs like "School's Out", "Only Women Bleed", "Billion Dollar Babies", "Welcome To My Nightmare", "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "I'm Eighteen" and "Department Of Youth" were backdropped with giant spiders, skeletons, a cyclops, and the voice of horror royalty Vincent Price. This groundbreaking theatrical presentation scintillated, horrified, and thrilled audiences, delivering an experience unlike any concerts at the time. He truly brought spectators into a living (or unliving) nightmare, and they loved every minute of it.
The combination of the "Welcome To My Nightmare" concert film and "Alice Cooper: The Nightmare" TV special demonstrates the true genius of Alice Cooper. He is beyond music, and beyond horror — Alice Cooper is an experience, who continues to frighten and thrill audiences to this day.
