Alice Cooper and Halestorm have announced a 2019 co-headline amphitheater tour across North America this summer. The 19-city run, produced by Live Nation, will kick off July 17 before wrapping August 16.

The March 4 announcement also revealed that new music from Cooper in time for the tour, once again produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced 2017’s Paranormal album, featuring friends like ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, U2’s Larry Mullen Jr, and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover, as well as original Alice Cooper band members Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. local time here.

“We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band,” said Cooper in the March 4 announcement.

“We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on Rock n Roll…Alice Cooper,” said Lzzy Hale, frontwoman of the Grammy Award-winning Halestorm. “Alice is our A in the ABC’s of Rock music, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”

Motionless in White will support on all dates.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Cooper will bring an all-new show for the tour. Dubbed “Ol’ Black Eyes is Back,” the show will have a very different look from recent tours. Cooper’s most recent release, the live album A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris, was released by earMUSIC in 2018. In addition to recording and touring both on his own and with the Hollywood Vampires (with pals Joe Perry and Johnny Depp), Cooper continues his nightly syndicated radio show, “Nights With Alice Cooper,” heard worldwide on over 100 radio stations.

Halestorm released their fourth full-length album, Vicious, last year, and earned the band their second Grammy nomination, for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “Uncomfortable,” the band’s fourth #1 at rock radio. Fronted by Hale, and named Loudwire’s 2018 Rock Artist of the Year, Halestorm has earned a reputation as a powerful live music force, headlining sold-out shows and topping festival bills around the world.
