- ALICE COOPER
Theatrical rocker Alice Cooper will perform at the Des Moines Civic Center on Tuesday, Oct. 23.
Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors. He continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for. Cooper’s performance, A Paranormal Evening with Alice Cooper, will bring the dark and horror-themed theatrics he’s known for to the Des Moines Civic Center stage.
“The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we’ve ever documented our existence, it’s all through an art form.”
