Alice Cooper fans in wonderland with VIP tickets

Have your say

ALICE COOPER fans won’t wonder How You Gonna See Me Now this Hallowe’en, as they’re being given an opportunity to meet the man himself.

Cooper and his band are bringing their Hallowe’en Night of Fear tour to the UK.

And they have revealed they are saving October 31 for a special show at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, where they will be supported by Loaded and Ugly Kid Joe.

But fans willing to shell out a little bit extra – £318 over and above the cost of the £40 ticket, to be precise – could find themselves Caught in a Dream with a VIP access pass that gets them a host of exclusive treats such as a picture with Alice, signed memorabilia - and even a chance to appear on stage. These kinds of all access passes are becoming a more common way of encouraging fans to attend live gigs by offering them a unique experience. The aim is to stop the trend of illegal downloads taking a significant chunk out of labels and recording artists bank balances.

Madonna’s July concert at Murrayfield also offers a “premium” experience, including a champagne reception, a three-course meal and a post-show party. While ticket cost is included in the £375 price, a meeting with the Queen of Pop is sadly, not included.
