This awesome vintage concert tee is for the legendary glam rocker Alice Cooper. The shirt sports an image of Cooper's head about to be sliced by a guillotine and commemorates his 1986-1987 The Nightmare Returns Tour. The tour was used to promote Cooper's album Constrictor, which was released in 1986 after he took a short hiatus from the music industry. The album managed to reach number 59 on the Billboard Top Pop Album chart. It featured the song "He's Back (The Man in the Mask)" which was written for the slasher movie Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, and "The Great American Success Story" which was supposedly intended to be the theme for the Rodney Dangerfield comedy Back to School. Constrictor also featured "Teenage Frankenstein" which became a crowd favorite and was regularly performed during the tour.
A live concert video of the tour was released on VHS in 1987 and then rereleased on DVD in 2006. The video was filmed in Detroit, Michigan 1986 during a Halloween performance and is considered by many to be the quintessential Alice Cooper concert film, perfectly capturing his over the top spooky onstage persona. Footage from this live recording is used in the music video for "Teenage Frankenstein".
Cooper is considered the Godfather of shock rock, utilizing props like electric chairs, fake blood, creepy dolls, and live reptiles. His live shows are a spectacle inspired by horror films, garage rock, and vaudeville entertainment all combined to create a memorably macabre experience.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There are two repairs on the front, see pics.
