Trashes The World Tour Contract Rider and Itinerary

1989

This is a copy of a 25-page 'Contract Rider' for the Sweden (Stockholm and Gothenburg) leg of the 1989 Trashes The World Tour.  A rider is a document where the artist's requirements are formally disclosed to the management of the venues where they will be performing.

 

Included in this document, amongst other things, are details on the requirements for the dressing rooms, lighting and power, tickets, crew food and security.  There is also an itinerary for Alice's stay in Sweden (complete with hotel names and flight numbers) plus a response from the venue management to the demands of 'Alice Cooper'.

Hey Stoopid Tour Contract Rider

This is a copy of a 25-page 'Contract Rider' for the European leg of the 1991 Hey Stoopid Tour, with the content very similar to the Trashes The World Tour rider (above).  There is no itinerary included, however.

Descent Into Dragontown Tour Program

2002

This 16-page program is believed to have been produced during the 2nd year of the Descent Into Dragontown Tour (2002), but was actually purchased (for £10) in 2004 during The Eyes Of Alice Cooper tour at London Hamersmith Apollo (presumably they had some left over).

 

The book features lots of images of Alice on tour, the majority of which are from the Descent Into Dragontown tour, but there are also some pictures from older tours as well.

 

There is little on offer in the way of text other than a short introduction from Alice, which quotes the lyrics to the song Dragontown, tour credits and an advert for some of his CDs releases.

 

As you will see from the first image, the front cover is hand signed by Alice in silver pen making this a nice collectable item.  Also, on the back you will note that the ink from another signed copy has made its way to mine so 2 autographs for the price of 1 (sort of)!

Dirty Diamonds Tour, Signed VIP Laminate

2005

This is my laminate from the 2005 Dirty Diamonds tour Meet and Greet event at Bournemouth International Centre.  It was signed by Alice during the 30 minutes or so that my group had with him.  My fondest memory from this experience was that one of the ladies present was also called Alice.  When he found out he replied, "silly name for a girl"!

Psycho-Drama Tour, Artist Engagement Contract

2007

This is a 'File Copy' of the contract for Alice's 'Psycho-Drama Tour' performance at the Majestic Theatre in Dallas on the 23rd October 2007.

 

The contract includes details of ticket prices, merchandise commission plus artist royalites.

Theatre of Death Tour, Postergram

2009

This nice postergram was purchased at The Brighton Centre show in December 2009 and includes lots of photos from some of the shows, tour credits and a nice 'Introduction To The Theatre Of Death' by Alice, which provides some fascinting insights into how the tour came to be.  

 

Also provided are some brief notes on the origins of Alice's use of the electric chair, guillotine, gallows and killer mic stand together with the setlist from the 2009 Theatre Of Death Tour.  It also unfolds to provide an excellent (and huge) poster of Alice performing the show opener, School's Out.

Theatre Of Death European Tour Documentation

2010

This 43-page document was produced for members of 'Alice Cooper' who worked on the 2009 Theatre Of Death Tour of Europe (including Halloween shows at the London Roundhouse, as indicated on the front cover).

 

It includes a detailed itinierary of all the shows (including show dates and details of hotels and flights), days off, journey times between venues, venue capacities and even currency exchange rates and time zones.  There are also instructions provided to all staff regarding claiming expenses and a warning not to "hog" the internet bandwidth!

 

The itinierary is very interesting as it shows where everyone headed after the final show in Lisbon on 29th November.  Alice, for instance, went back to London Heathrow and then had to wait 5 hours before boarding a flight home to Phoenix.

This guitar pick set was only available for purchase at the No More Mr Nice Guy Tour shows of 2011 and features 6 Alice-related picks in a metal tin.

Handwritten Programme Note

2011 / 12?

This note is handwritten, signed by Alice himself and is believed to have been penned as part of the promotion for the 2011 or 2012 UK Halloween shows.  I've not seen this text printed though so if you've seen it anywhere then please let me know.  

 

It contains obvious references to the dialogue from Bram Stoker's Dracula novel, parts of which were then used in Sir Christopher Lee's spoken introduction to the Hollywood Vampires' debut album of 2015.

On the back is a cool half-Alice-half-skull drawing (which I've not seen used anywhere before) together with the predominant setlist from the Raise The Dead Tour (there were some variations during this period though).
