Alice Cooper, ELO, Brian Wilson top upcoming local shows 

Here’s a show announcement that’s arriving with plenty of advance notice, but probably for very good reason. The halls of the Pikes Peak Center are set to become a bit more bloody this summer, as the iconic Alice Cooper arrives on Aug. 8.

Whether you appreciate the singer born Vincent Furnier as a guillotine-wielding theatrical rock performer, a witty shock-rock provocateur, Desmond Child-produced glam rock hitmaker, or a lean, mean garage rocker, an Alice Cooper show really has something for everyone. The only real issue for classic rock junkies might be having to decide between Cooper or catching ELO’s appearance at the Pepsi Center that same night. But, either way, don’t forget about Brian Wilson’s Pikes Peak Center stop in the meantime, occurring on Wednesday, April 18.

Meanwhile, here are some more notable Colorado show announcements:
