As part of the Tall Ships celebration this past weekend, The Bay Arts Council presented Detroit native Alice Cooper in Concert on Saturday, July 17, 2010 in Veteran's Memorial Park on the West Side of Bay City.

It was an all out - no holds barred - Alice Cooper "Theatre of Death" Show as thousands filled Vet's Park on a perfect summer night in Bay City, Michigan. The attendance was estimated to be one of the largest ever in Vet's Park history.

Vincent Damon Furnier, better known as Alice Cooper (Right) one of the original shock rockers, is known for stage shows featuring guillotines, snakes and fake blood back in the 70's and 80's called the Alice Cooper SHOW. Cooper who is now 62 years old brought it all to Bay City, and definitely pleased the "Alice Fans" with the performance.

The performance included special stage roofing supporting 9,000 pounds of lights to complete the stage show "extraordinaire." Stage action was going on at every minute, new props being pulled out, new costumes and even Alice's daughter took part in the stage performance.

Cooper who gave up drinking 30 years ago, is not slowing down and enjoys performing and goes that extra mile to make his performances his own unique style, memorable and a stand-out from the rest.

Cooper, a legend in his own time, not only has older fans of the 70's and 80's but also a new era of young fans as well. Cooper left Bay City after the show and went on to Dayton Ohio for a show the following night. Alice Cooper has a full tour schedule through November 2010.
