Trashes The World Tour, Programme (1989)
Trashes The World Tour Contract Rider and Itinerary (1989)
This is a copy of a 'Contract Rider' for the Sweden (Stockholm and Gothenburg) leg of the 1989 Trashes The World tour. A rider is a document where the performers requirements are formally disclosed to the management of the venues where they will be performing.
Included in this document are details on the requirements for dressing room, lighting and power, tickets, crew food and security. There is also an itinerary for Alice's stay in Sweden (complete with hotel names and flight numbers) plus a response from the venue management to the demands of 'Alice Cooper'.
My Valuation: £25
Hey Stoopid Tour, Programme (1991)
Hey Stoopid Tour Contract Rider (1991)
This is a copy of a 'Contract Rider' for the European leg of the 1991 Hey Stoopid tour, with the content very similar to the document featured above from the Trashes The World tour. There is no itinerary or response from the venue management, however.
My Valuation: £20
Descent Into Dragontown Tour Book (2002)
This tour book was produced during the 2nd year of the Descent Into Dragontown tour, but was actually purchased (for £10) in 2004 during The Eyes Of Alice Cooper tour at London Hamersmith Apollo (presumably they had some left over).
The book features lots of images of Alice on tour, the majority of which are from the Descent Into Dragontown tour, but there are also some pictures from older tours as well.
There is little on offer in the way of text other than a short introduction from Alice, which quotes the lyrics to the song Dragontown, some credits and an advert for some of his CDs releases.
As you will see from the first image, the front cover is hand signed by Alice in silver pen making this a nice collectable item. Also, on the back you will note that the ink from another signed copy has made its way to mine so 2 autographs for the price of 1 (sort of)!
My Valuation: £50
Dirty Diamonds Tour, Signed VIP Laminate (2005)
This is my laminate from the 2005 Dirty Diamonds tour Meet and Greet event at Bournemouth International Centre. It was signed by Alice during the 30 minutes or so that my group had with him. My fondest memory from this experience was that one of the ladies present was also called Alice. When he found out he replied, "silly name for a girl"!
My Valuation: £50
Psycho-Drama Tour, Artist Engagement Contract
This is a 'File Copy' of the contract for Alice's 'Psycho-Drama Tour' performance at the Majestic Theatre in Dallas on the 23rd October 2007.
The contract includes details of ticket prices, merchandise commission plus artist royalites.
My Valuation: £30
Theatre of Death Tour, Postergramme (2009)
Theatre Of Death Tour, VIP Pass
This is a used satin 'VIP' pass from the 2nd of 2 Theatre Of Death tour Halloween Special shows at the London Roundhouse in November 2010 (the other being the day before, of course).
Theatre Of Death European Tour Documentation (2010)
This document was produced to member of 'Alice Cooper' who were involved in the 2009 tour of Europe (including the shows at the London Roundhouse, as indicated on the front cover).
It includes a detailed itinierary of the shows on the tour (including show dates and details of hotels and flights), journey times between venues and currency exchange rates. There is also some information provided to all staff regarding claiming expenses and a warning not to "hog" the internet bandwidth!
The itinierary is very interesting as it shows where everyone headed after the final show in Lisbon on 29th November. Alice, for instance, went back to London Heathrow and then had to wait 5 hours before boarding a flight home to Phoenix.
My Valuation: £30

Handwritten Programme Note (2011/12?)
This note is handwritten, signed by Alice himself and is believed to have been penned as part of the promotion for the 2011 or 2012 UK Halloween shows. I've not seen this text printed though so if you've seen it anywhere then please let me know.
It contains obvious references to the dialogue from Bram Stoker's Dracula novel, parts of which were then used in Sir Christopher Lee's spoken introduction to the Hollywood Vampires album.
My Valuation: £150
Raise The Dead Tour, Postergramme (2012)
This nice 'postergramme' provides all the dates and venues of the 2012 and 2013 tours and provides lots of photos from some of the shows. The postergramme unfolds to provide an excellent photos of Alice performing Hello Horray. On the back is a cool skull drawing (I've not seen it before) together with the most usual setlist from the Riase The Dead Tour (no He's Back, for example).
My Valuation: £30

This guitar pick set was only available for purchase at the No More Mr Nice Guy Tour shows of 2011 and features 6 Alice-related picks in a metal tin.
These are tickets from some (but not all) the concerts featuring Alice Cooper that I have attended over the last 20 years or so.
