Alice Cooper, our resident night show freak is returning to New Zealand, 40 years after his first tour here.

The 'Poison' hitmaker has announced concerts in Auckland and Wellington this October.

Cooper will be supported by KISS guitarist Ace Frehley, who will perform a 60-minute set complete with his smoking guitar.

It's the 13th tour of NZ for Cooper, who is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer with multiple gold and platinum albums and countless honours and career achievement awards.

He has spent almost 50 years touring the world, releasing 26 Studio Albums, selling more than 50 million albums in the US alone and pioneering theatrical rock shows.

Alice Cooper tour dates:

  • Friday, October 27 - Trusts Stadium, Auckland
  • Saturday, October 28 - TSB Bank Arena, Wellington

Tickets  go on sale to the general public April 28.

Last month some lucky Sound listeners joined Alice Cooper for dinner at his Cooperstown Restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona.
