Stage Props

Stage-Used Cane

I was lucky enough to get this cane at Alice's November 2007 concert at the Bournemouth International Centre.  I got to the gig well in advance of the door opening time and therefore managed to get to the front row.  

 

I recall being particularly vocal that night, singing my heart out to the whole set.  Alice clearly appreciated this as he handed me the cane (during his performance of School's Out) rather than toss it randomly into the crowd, like he often does.  

 

For this reason it's the most prized item in my collection, despite have no actual worth (it's just a cheap wooden cane).  I wouldn't sell it for ANY money.

Stage-Used 'Dirty Diamonds'

I caught this 'Dirty Diamond' necklace at Alice's July 2008 show at Southampton Civic Centre.  Obviously, this was flung by Alice during his performance of the song Dirty Diamonds.  Again, it's a worthless item but priceless to me!

 

This concert became infamous due to a fairly irate one-legged man!

Stage-Used Guitar Picks

These are guitar picks that I've caught at various shows over the years.  Two of them are identical from Jason Hook and the others from Chuck Garric, Eric Singer (unusual as his is a drummer), Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie.

Green Cooper Dollars (1996 Series)

These single-sided Alice Cooper $100 bills (also know as 'Cooper Dollars') have been caught by me at various concerts.  This is with the exception of the 2 signed ones, the first of which was personally signed by Alice at the Bournemouth International Centre, UK, in November 2005.  The other one was obtained from a member of Alice's tour crew.   

 

The 4 stage-used Cooper Dollars all have piercings from when they were spiked through Alice's sword.

 

All 6 Cooper Dollars feature the same Dragontown era image of Alice on the front, but there are various subtle varitions present (such as serial numbers and signatures for the 'Treasurer' and 'Secretary').  However, they are all stated as being from 'Series 1996'. 

Green Cooper Dollar (1990 Series)

This bill was purchased from a fellow collector and has a sword piercing mark.  This one states that it is from the '1990 Series' but the image of Alice is actually from the Brutal Planet era (i.e. 2000 onwards).

Orange Cooper Collars (1996 Series)

These special orange Halloween Cooper Dollars were caught at the Plymouth Pavillions, UK, concert on 29th October 2015.  They are all stated as being from 'Series 1996'. 

Stage-Used School's Out Balloon

This is a popped giant orange balloon from one of Alice's performances of School's Out.  I can't remember which concert this comes from but I remember it being popped by Alice when it was right on top of me (I got covered in confetti, which is hidden inside).

Stage-Used Hollywood Vampires School's Out Balloon

2018

Similar to the above, Alice also pops giant balloons during his performances of School's Out with The Hollywood Vampires. This red one was collected off the ground after the show at London's Wembley Arena in June 2018. 

USA Flag Shirt

This USA flag shirt is from Alice's wardrobe and is hand signed by the man himself (it also appears to feature some make-up smears).  The same style of shirt has been used on numerous occassions in the past, this includes Alice's appearance in the 2011 Classic Rock Welcome 2 My Nightmare Fan Pack magazine and when Alice took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in August 2014 (during one of his Raise The Dead shows, in Virginia Beach).

 

I do not believe that this particular shirt has ever been used by Alice, the reason for this is that it doesn't feature any of the trademark custom rips that you would expect to see in a stage worn version.  It is more likely, therefore, that it is simply a leftover reserve shirt.

 

Note: The white sleeves are tucked in on the photos below.
