Alice Cooper to perform at Surf Ballroom
CLEAR LAKE, Iowa -- Alice Cooper, who built his hard rock career on a name change and bizarre stage antics, will perform in concert at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.
Cooper, who was born Vincent Furnier, formed a rock band in 1965, but didn't achieve stardom until changing his name and having his first hit with "Eighteen" in 1971. Subsequent hits included "School's Out," "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and "You and Me." He often took the stage with props designed to shock, including boa constrictors and guillotines.
Tickets are $25, available online at www.surfballroom.com, at CDGB's in Mason City, and at the Surf box office. The Surf is at 460 North Shore Drive in Clear Lake, (641) 357-6151.
