VIDEO: Michael Monroe performs with Alice Cooper in Helsinki

Michael Monroe joined Alice Cooper for his 1972 classic, “School’s Out”, at the Tuska festival in Helsinki, Finland on Sunday.

Cooper’s encore with Monroe wrapped up a 24-song set the event as the shock rocker performs on his Raise The Dead tour.

“Hey, had a FANTASTIC time with Alice Cooper tonight at the Tuska Festival in Helsinki!!,” posted Monroe after the show. “Thank You, Alice! Thank You Toby, the Band & the entire crew & everybody there! Good times!!”

The former Hanoi Rocks frontman will release his 10th studio album, “Blackout States”, on October 16.

Produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads) in Gothenburg, Sweden and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, the project is the follow-up to the 2013 Finnish chart-topper “Horns And Halos.”

Monroe recorded the album with his touring band – bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company Of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen) and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig).
