Cooper will be hitting the road in sopport of his 2021 album, “Detroit Stories”; produced by Bob Ezrin, the project – which recently debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart – is billed as a modern-day homage to the rocker’s hometown and the city that launched the original Alice Cooper group.

Frehley will be promoting his 2020 covers album, “Origins Vol. 2”, which features songs originally recorded by Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Animals, Paul Revere And The Raiders and more.

The month-long US tour by the pair of rock veterans will kick off in Atlantic City on September 18 after Alice plays his own show the night beforer without the former KISS guitarist.

"We've always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again," says Cooper. "It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!"

"I've known Alice for over 30 years,"
adds Frehley. "We're good friends, and we've toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock."
