Following the April premiere of Super Duper Alice Cooper at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the subsequent release of the documentary on DVD, Blu-Ray, Deluxe Editions, and digital formats this month via Eagle Rock Entertainment, rock’s greatest showman, Alice Cooper, heads out on a lengthy North American tour.

The summer trek starts with three shows in Michigan June 26-28 before Cooper joins Motley Crue’s final “All Bad Things Must Come To An End” tour as a Very Special Guest on July 2nd, running through late November.

The tour marks the debut of Alice’s new guitarist Nita Strauss, who was recently ranked #1 on Guitar World’s list of “10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know.”  She takes the place of Orianthi, who has toured with Alice for the past few years.  Nita, who has made her name in bands including the Iron Maidens, Femme Fatale, and LA Kiss, joins Alice’s band’s three guitar attack, which also features guitarists Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henriksen, plus longtime bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel.

Super Duper Alice Cooper was produced and directed by the Banger Films team of Sam Dunn, Scot McFadyen and Reginald Harkema.  Banger previously delivered the award-winning documentaries “Iron Maiden: Flight 666″ and “Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage.”  Eagle Rock Entertainment released the film in DVD and Blu-Ray on June 3rd, including a deluxe edition with extensive bonus material film footage from a rare 1972 Montreal concert and a full length recent Alice Cooper concert from the 2009 Montreux Festival on CD.

Alice recently marked the tenth anniversary of his radio show “Nights With Alice Cooper,” which airs five days a week across the USA, Canada and Australia, as well as in the UK and Germany, syndicated worldwide by United Stations.
