Product Description

The godfather of shock-rock Alice Cooper completed his 2009 Theatre of Death World Tour by filming the final show at London's legendary Hammersmith Apollo. The concert features many of Cooper's massive hits including 'School's Out,' 'I'm Eighteen' and 'Poison,' 'Alice Cooper's Theatre Of Death' is a very different show than anyone has ever seen before.

Alice Cooper's Theatre of Death tour has been an awesome showcase for the founder of what we call shock rock.

I had planned to pass on the latest Alice Cooper DVD/CD combo, Theatre of Death: Live at Hammersmith 2009. After all, how many versions of "School's Out" and "18" does a guy need?

At least one more, as it turns out. Despite having two or three other video versions of Cooper shows in my home library, I added this latest set to my collection today, and I'm glad I did. Beautifully filmed, the recording captures a set list and theatrical show virtually identical to the one my wife and I saw just a few weeks back in Cleveland. Apparently, the Cooper tradition of only changing shows every other year still holds true.

Basically, this is Cooper doing what he does best: Serving as ringleader for a group of talented younger musicians and ripping through as many classic tunes from his repertoire as possible. Only a few songs from the last decade make the cut ("Dirty Diamonds," "Wicked Young Man" and "Vengeance Is Mine"), with a few more obscure hits ("Guilty" and "Nurse Rosetta," the last being one of my favorite Cooper tracks from the criminally under-appreciated 1979 album, "From the Inside") inserted for good measure.

This DVD is better than 2005's "Live at Montreux," largely because the theatrics are much stronger. The Hammersmith show offers super-sized syringes, a hanging, a guillotining, and a disturbing belt-sander-to-the-crotch sequence. Cooper's is in fine voice here, and damn if it doesn't get stronger past the halfway point when he serves up two ballads in a row "Only Women Bleed" and "I Never Cry."

Band members Damon Johnson and Keri Kelli (guitars), Chuck Garric (bass) and Jimmy DeGrasso (drums) offer a tight set.

Thanks to my Dad and his huge record collection, I've been an Alice Cooper fan since birth. I saw him live once back in 2001 and one of my father's friends even managed to dive over a seat and snag a whip Alice threw into the crowd from some poor little kid. Other than KISS (who even claim to have stolen the over-the-top stage theatrics idea from Alice), nobody puts on a live show like him. There are 26 songs on both the Blu-ray and CD that were recorded in December 2009. The DVD runs for a little over 90 minutes and the CD is about 80 minutes long, but no songs are cut. The 10 missing minutes from the CD is the time he spends on stage doing his typical crazy stuff that we all love.

The picture and sound quality are top notch. Alice Cooper still sounds very good live and the band hits all the right notes. I also liked the all over the place song selection. You still get most of the classics, but we get a song here and there from the more recent albums too. This stage show blows away the one I saw some 9 Halloweens ago. Alice dies multiple times and we get all kinds of creatures and masked men running around on the stage.

If you're a fan this is a must buy of course. I've seen his other live DVD releases and this is my favorite by far. I can't wait to watch it again. Maybe I'll blast it Halloween night and scare all the kids away. More candy for me. Thanks Alice.

My expectations were not that high for this latest AC concert DVD, but damn, I was wrong. I love the new and different arrangements of these songs compared to the highly polished versions offered up on Live at Montreux from 2005. That was a great band, half of them are back, and guitarist Keri Kelli and long-time/part-time Alice drummer Jimmy DeGrasso and the others make it interesting even if you've seen his more recent shows or concert DVDs. Thanks to Alice for including Wicked Young Man (my personal favorite) from the great Brutal Planet CD, From the Inside, Nurse Rozetta, and Cold Ethyl. Dirty Diamonds is another standout; Alice taunts the audience repeatedly with those cheap necklaces and it's just a great live tune. There are lots of crowd shots which work well; Alice's interaction with the crowd and their reaction is always a big part of any AC show.

Other than Alice, how many classic rock stars' recent material can stand up with their classics - NO ONE else. His voice has held up amazingly well and the man truly enjoys what he does and it shows. As long as he can get musicians this talented and put on shows like this, I hope he goes forever.

Format: DVD
For the curious, here's the difference between the DVD soundtrack and the CD content: not much.

The DVD is just over 92 minutes, starting with about 30 seconds of instrumental intro and ending with "Welcome to My Nightmare" playing over the credits. Neither of those tracks appears on the CD. In addition, "Only Women Bleed" and "I Never Cry" are two tracks on the CD, but one chapter on the DVD; this is why both discs list 27 tracks. (The "Nightmare" end credits are a 28th chapter, and could well be the album version.) Other than that, the differences seem to be just little cuts to tighten up the show so it'll fit on a CD - 30 seconds here, a minute there, cutting out some of the incidental audio that goes with the more visual "acting" parts of the show. I haven't done an in-depth comparison yet, but that seems to be the case from looking at chapter and track times.

The inclusion of the CD booklet was a nice touch, and I found myself wishing I'd bought this in the "CD with bonus DVD" packaging instead of vice versa. That way, I could've put my Montreux 2005 and Hammersmith 2009 DVDs together in the Montreux case and the CDs together in this jewel case. Live and learn, though. I really would've preferred that the full DVD audio had been put onto the DVD as high bitrate MP3s, truth be told - that way, one disc would do everything.

Don't let the format nitpicks dissuade you, though - this is a wild show and a worthy addition to your collection, in any of the three formats.

Alice Cooper :Theatre Of Death Live dvd...w/ live cd bonus *
Question: If the DVD is 91 minutes and has 26 tracks, how is it that the CD also has 26 tracks? Only 79 minutes fits on a CD so something must have been cut. What's the actual CD track listing?
