Alice Cooper – ‘Welcome to My Nightmare’ Tour (1975) – Tour Program

In my crate digging, I keep running in to Tour Books and of course, I keep buying them because I think they are cool time capsules of a band. This time around, I found 2 Alice Cooper Tour Books. And these are vintage as they were both from the 70’s and they look it. The first one we have here is from Alice’s biggest and best album, ‘Welcome to My Nightmare’, from 1975. The Tour began on March 21, 1975, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, making its way across the States and even in to Europe where it ended on September 17 in Antwerp, Belgium.

The Band had a cast of characters and included the following host of people:

  • Alice Cooper
  • Steve Hunter – Guitar
  • Dick Wagner – Guitar
  • Prakash John – Bass
  • Jozef Chirowski – Keyboards
  • Whitey Glan – Drums
  • Vincent Price – Spider Voice
  • Sheryl Goddard – Ethyl
  • Robyn Blythe – Bat Woman
  • Gene Montoya – Voodoo Man
  • Uchi Sugiyama – Frog Man

Yes, it is a cast as Alice doesn’t just put on a concert, nope! He puts on a show. A creep show and this one is all about his nightmares. But the concert is always important and the set list, on average, looked something like this…

  1. Welcome to My Nightmare
