Alice Cooper led a sick and twisted
crowd through his personal vision
of hell for 2 12 hours at Omaha's
Civic Auditorium, "Welcome To My
Nightmare." When Alice burst from his
cage flailing his cane with the fervor of
a madman, the crowd was fully a part of
his demented, fiendish fantasy. With
an elaborate stage set, theatrical antics
and constant billowing smoke Gust in

An Amazonian nurse rolled a baby
carriage across the stage. Alice promptly
stabbed the "baby" and impaled its
head on the long sword he wielded
throughout the night.
That was only the beginning. What
followed would make even the most
sinister concert patrons grind their
teeth or laugh inanely with the kind of
nervous laughter people use when they
witness a bizzare murder.

from the "pierced" woman. Alice licked
the blood from the puncture and tasted
the sweetness that is his nightmare.

ce's bloody, dismembered head was
kissed and caressed by the masked
seductress just before she showered
the eager audience with "blood" from
Alice's severed stump. The effect,
though not as mystic as the monster,
was morbidly gratifying.
Bile and marrow
Alice played to the awestruck aud
ience, sucking delicious bile and hone
marrow from its collective emotion, his
songs reflecting the rancid emissions
of a twisted yet sensitive mind.
The tribute to all that is evil con
tinued. Alice crooned, wrenched and
snarled out "Billion Dollar Babies,"
"Sick Things," "Go To Hell,". "Eight
een," "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and the
virtual catalogue of his early to mid-70s
repertoire. The show concentrated on
this era of his music. Although Alice
had nothing new to say, he passionately
orchestrated the best of his music and
concerts over the last 15 years.
The finale to this madness was the
inevitable "School's Out." Solos, intro
ductions, splashing lights and then:
school was out. The sermon complete,
Alice and his mates retired to their
A knee-weakening encore.
Kicking a trash can to center stage,
Alice settled comfortably across the
battered receptacle. "I Want To Get
Elected" he raved while showing the
flag stitched on his new leather jacket.
Standing atop a foothill of his moun
tain, he waved an American flag to his
half-crazed constituency. The service
concluded with a brain-throbbing ver
sion of "Under My Wheels."
