Alice Cooper to release Raise The Dead Live From Wacken

Alice Cooper will release a new concert package, “Raise The Dead – Live From Wacken”, this fall.

Due October 21 in North America, (Oct 17 in Germany and October 20 in UK), the set features the rock legend recorded in concert at Wacken Open Air, an annual summer open air heavy metal festival that takes place in the small village of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein in northern Germany.

Recorded live on August 3, 2013, “Raise The Dead” will be available as DVD + CD digipack. The DVD contains 22 songs plus an interview with Alice, while the double CD contains the complete concert.

With "Raise The Dead - Live From Wacken", the German label UDR is starting a new live series of legendary Wacken performances. When Alice learned about the purpose behind it, he was very happy to be one of the first to participate and support the Wacken Foundation.

The Wacken Foundation is a non-profit organization, supporting the new blood of hard rock and heavy metal music. For every CD and DVD sold, one euro will be contributed to the Wacken Foundation.

Alice is currently on the road across North America as the special guest on Motley Crue’s farewell tour.
