Reporting Pat Kessler
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One of music’s most iconic rockers is in Minneapolis for two nights of shows.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is performing again Monday night at the State Theater in Minneapolis.
Before the concert, Cooper attended a Minneapolis exhibit of album cover art, including his own records.
Gallery-13 in Minneapolis opened the 10-day show featuring original artwork for iconic rock albums, including Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Cooper told our Pat Kessler his horror show concerts always had a humorous quality.
“It always had that underlying sense of humor that … really? You’re buying into this? Musically, it was solid as it could be, but when you have a great villain image, there’s always a great dark sense of humor behind it,” Cooper said.
By the way: Alice Cooper told us he relaxes before concerts by throwing knives. In fact, and we checked this, Alice Cooper is a 2012 inductee into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame.
