Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium – Chattanooga, TN
This year has been a great year of for checking off items on the Boomerocity Bucket List. In fact, in the case of Alice Cooper, two items were check off – one of them twice.
1. Interviewing the man, himself and,
B. Getting to see him twice in concert – in the same year!
For the second time this year, Boomerocity got to see one of its all-time favorites, Alice Cooper, in concert and, dare we say, though both shows were phenomenal, he and the band were even better than his concert back in March.
Coop and the band gave a capacity crowd twenty-one hits – each one bringing back memories to each and every fan. From the opening tune (Brutal Planet) through the encore (School’s Out), Alice and the band left fans aching to hear more.
Boomerocity has been a fan of Alice’s since “Love It To Death” came out, loving every note and syllable of “I’m Eighteen” and later finding the “School’s Out” and “Billion Dollar Babies” 8-Tracks under the Christmas back in the seventies. With songs like No More Mr. Nice Guy, Billion Dollar Babies, I Love The Dead, and School’s Out, Coop brought back very special memories to Boomerocity’s mind.
Alice also served up work from his more recent albums including cuts from “Paranormal” (Paranoiac Personality) and Dirty Diamonds (Woman Of Mass Distraction).
We’ve enjoyed shows at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium in the past (Joe Bonamassa) and think it’s a great venue to catch shows if you live or visit the Chattanooga area often.
We’re looking forward to catching more shows there in the future.
