Teased via Rob Zombie's Twitter feed yesterday:
"Big tour news coming on monday morning! It's a tour match up that you've asking me about for years. HMMMMMMMM?""What could it be?" I wondered.
GWAR and Zombie? Probably not.
Marilyn Manson and Zombie? HIGHLY unlikely.
Twister Sister and Zombie? Not even with a time machine.
Then a lightbulb... nah... couldn't be... that's too good to be true...
But it IS.
Tickets go on sale TODAY for The Gruesome Twosome Tour featuring both Rob Zombie AND Alice Cooper ON THE SAME BILL!
This is a FIRST for the two gentlemen who have made a living singing about blood, fear and things that go bump in the night.
That's the good news... the bad news is that there is only a small handful of dates and mostly for Canucks.
Man! To go to a single evening where I can see the sexy Sheri Moon Zombie go-go dancing to "Dragula" in front of blasts of flame AND hear Alice's new single "Keepin' Halloween Alive" LIVE on the same stage is enough to make this Halloween Addict weep like the last vampire on earth.
Here's to hoping that the tour continues through the year and for much more of the U.S.
You can buy Canadian tix HERE... go to the official Gruesome Twosome site HERE and to the official site of Rob Zombie HERE and Alice Cooper HERE.
HERE featuring a Halloween countdown clock, Cooperoke Sing-along video, and cool new Halloween-inspired merch like this cool "Keepin' Halloween Alive" t-shirt in addition to signed copies of the CD single and a vintage-Cooper mask-on-a-stick. Check it all out HERE.
