[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alice Cooper[/lastfm] will use his own name & likeness in Tim Burton’s feature-length film Dark Shadows…
Filming now in England, it stars [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Johnny Depp[/lastfm], Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Helena Bonham Carter. The movie is set in 1972, and Cooper is hired to play at a ball hosted by Depp’s character, a vampire named Barnabas Collins. Good thinking on Tim’s part…fits right in!
Cooper brought his annual Halloween Night of Fear show to London over the weekend and was joined by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Arthur Brown[/lastfm]. Wearing a flash pot on his head, Brown, along with Cooper, did his signature song, “Fire.”
The show was captured in 3D and was broadcast Halloween night in England. Cooper’s tour heads to Brussels, Belgium tonight. ~JZ.
