Alice Cooper – ‘Guilty/King of the Silver Screen Tour’ (1977) – 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 next one up is the Tour Book for the Guilty Tour also known as King of the Silver Screen Tour which began on June 19, 1977 at Anaheim Stadium, Anaheim, California and ended on August 30, 1977 at McNichols Sports Arena, Denver, Colorado

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
  • Fred Mandel – Keyboards
  • Whitey Glan – Drums

The tour was in support of the Lace and Whisky album and featured a stage set designed as a giant TV. The TV had slits in the screen where Cooper and his dancers jumped in and out along to filmed choreographed sequences during the songs. They even went so far as to have hilarious mock commercials screened in between some songs. When you go see Alice Cooper you definitely get a show!

The average set list on the tour was as follows:

  1. Under My Wheels
  2. Billion Dollar Babies
  3. I’m Eighteen
  4. Sick Things
  5. Is It My Body
  6. Devil’s Food
  7. The Black Widow
  8. You and Me
  9. Only Women Bleed
  10. Unfinished Sweet
  11. Escape
  12. I Love the Dead
  13. Go to Hell
  14. Wish You Were Here
  15. I Never Cry
  16. It’s Hot Tonight
  17. Lace and Whiskey
  18. King of the Silver Screen
  19. School’s Out (Encore)

Are you ready to see the pictures? Well of course you are…And remember this is Alice Cooper and that is what you get in these pictures…a lot of Alice…
