Alice Cooper + The Cult – Creeper announced as special guests

Two acclaimed headliners from both sides of the Atlantic will be touring UK arenas for 2022’s must-see event. And now, they announce an even bigger bill with special guests Creeper joining the legendary co-headliners The Cult and Alice Cooper.

“It is somewhat surreal for us to be able to announce today that Creeper will be joining Alice Cooper and The Cult on their UK arena tour next month. It is a dream come true for a band like ours to tour with our heroes and people who have been such an inspiration to us. We cannot wait to be a part of the spectacle each night.” – Creeper

Formed in Southampton in 2014, Creeper mixed punk rock with a glam theatricality perfect for this epic show, attracting a dedicated fanbase called The Creeper Cult. They released debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, in 2017 going straight in at number 1 in the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart and in the top 20 of the UK Albums Chart.

But hard times were ahead. Guitarist Ian Miles suffered mental health problems, the band announced their retirement on stage in London in 2018, frontman Ian Gould went on to write the next album alone, moving to LA and succumbing to alcoholism. The triumph of ambitious album ‘Sex, Death & the Infinite Void’ came reagrdless in 2020 and was followed by EP ‘American Noir’. The band have hardly been able to play the new music live over the last couple of pandemic interrupted years, so this will be an opportunity for fans to catch one of the most exciting rock bands in the UK.

Top of the bill, Rock n Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper returns to the UK alongside Rock Icons The Cult. Renowned for their unforgettable live shows, we can anticipate a dark, twisted trip through goth, psychedelia, macabre theatre and straight up rock anthems when these two giants take the stage.

Building once again on his legendary status, Alice scored a Top 5 UK chart album with “Detroit Stories” this year. The record showcases Alice’s roots in the legendary Detroit rock scene of the late 60’s and early 70s, celebrating the place where Alice’s sound and show came into its own.

Alice continually delivers live, not just incredible music but awesome spectacle with snakes, guillotines, monsters and gore – wreaking havoc on stage nightly. Classics like “Under My Wheels,” “I’m Eighteen,” “Schools Out,” “Poison,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and “No More Mr Nice Guy” are staples and there are surprises every night, effortlessly drawn from one the greatest catalogues in rock and roll.

Co-headlining this once-in-a-lifetime event, The Cult has revelled in a controversial and storied career. Emerging from the darkly romantic UK post-punk scene; Ian Astbury (vocals) and Billy Duffy (guitar), debuted with the album “Dreamtime” in 1984 and have embarked on a sonic exploration from post punk to goth, to psychedelia, through hard rock.

In 2016 they released their 10th studio album “Hidden City”, an elegantly brutal masterpiece inspired by a visceral exploration of self and soul, launching The Cult into another triumphant world tour, burning up stages with Public Enemy, Primal Scream, Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses and many others into 2019, when The Cult celebrated the 30th Anniversary of their Sonic Temple album with a sold-out world tour and Box Set.

Three incredible acts, one moment to witness rock history.
