The Skinny: As the opener on Motley Crue’s Final Tour, Alice Cooper and his band performed a set of greatest hits to an enthusiastic Southern California crowd. The three-guitar attack of Nita Strauss (who recently replaced Orianthi Panagaris), Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henriksen is sterling. With a lavish stage production (boa constrictor, Dwight Fry straight-jacket, creepy-looking dolls, etc.), and a killer sound, Alice Cooper gave Irvine a show that arguably upstaged the headlining act.
