A Paranormal Evening with Alice Cooper - August 6, 2018 - Muriel Kauffman Theatre, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Theatrical rocker Alice Cooper will perform at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on August 6, as part of the 2018-2019 Kauffman Center Presents series.

Known as the architect of shock rock, Alice Cooper – in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist – has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo. Cooper’s performance, A Paranormal Evening with Alice Cooper, will bring the dark and horror-themed theatrics he’s known for to the stage of Muriel Kauffman Theatre.

Tickets are available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at


Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of rock that was designed to shock. For more than five decades, Cooper’s show has surprised fans and exuded terror at every turn. Spending six months each year on the road, Cooper brings his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new.

The Alice Cooper band formed while its members were in high school in Phoenix, and was discovered in 1969 by Frank Zappa, who signed the group to his record label. The band found success through the 1970s with albums including Love It to Death, Killer and School’s Out, building a more elaborate touring stage show with each release. Cooper released his first solo album, Welcome to My Nightmare, in 1975, followed by many more solo releases, including 2017’s Paranormal.

Cooper’s television and movie credits include Wayne’s World, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, and That 70’s Show. He will appear as Herod in NBC’s live staging of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar on April 1. The Alice Cooper band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
