Alice Cooper – City National Civic, San Jose (PHOTOS)

Shock rocker Alice Cooper came ripping through San Jose, CA on his “Paranormal” tour, taking the stage at City National Civic. With sparks pouring down from the ceiling, the band launched into “Brutal Planet”, setting the tone for the rest of the energetic and theatrical evening.

The nearly two-hour set contained most of the classic Alice Cooper you’d probably expect (“No More Mr. Nice Guy”, “Poison”, “I’m Eighteen”, etc), with a couple of selections from his most recent album Paranormal, and a sprinkling of fan favorites from much of his catalog.

The band itself was just as attitude-y and fun to watch as Cooper, with lead guitarist Nita Strauss stealing much of the show. Jumping, hair flips, swinging guitars, canes, swords, sparks, costumes… it was definitely an Alice Cooper show.

Catch this rare display of rock n’ roll theatrics when it comes to your city (tour dates below), and check out our photos by Clay Lancaster.
