The Strange Case Of Alice Cooper

Live 1979 –Madhouse Rock Tour

Available for the First Time on DVD May 22

from Shout! Factory

Unavailable and unseen for more than 30 years, Alice Cooper’s macabre masterpiece The Strange Case of Alice Cooper will be released on DVD for the first time on May 22, 2012 from Shout! Factory.

The Strange Case Of Alice Cooper is more than a concert film. It is the warped tale of one man’s descent into madness, a theatrical rock ’n’ roll spectacle that could only emerge from the twisted imagination of Alice Cooper.

Recorded live on April 9, 1979, in San Diego, California during a stop on the Madhouse Rock Tour, Strange Case was inspired by Alice’s stay in a New York sanitarium and the people he encountered there. Vincent Price introduces the proceedings as ghoulish doctors and transvestite nurses cross paths with dancing bottles of alcohol. All the while, Alice performs songs off his album From The Inside, as well as many of his most well-known and best-loved hits.

A must-have for fans of Alice Cooper and rock music alike, Strange Case will be available  in stores nationwide with a suggested retail price of $16.98. The DVD also features an audio commentary by Alice Cooper.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
