Alice Cooper has signed on to do his first Detroit autograph-signing event in more than 20 years — and considering the number of restrictions he’s placed on the event, he doesn’t seem particularly thrilled about it.
For starters, fans who want to attend the September event — which is being staged at Rock City Music Company to promote Cooper’s new album, “Detroit Stories” — have to buy a $25 ticket to get in. If they want Cooper’s autograph, they’ll also have to have to also purchase a copy of the new album — because Cooper will refuse to sign anything else, according to his reps. And after spending all that money, if they to take a selfie with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, too bad — his reps say he won’t have time for pictures.
The September 23rd autograph signing will occur two days before Cooper is set to perform at Detroit’s DTE Energy Music Theatre. Tickets for both events are on sale now.
Is it cool for Cooper to charge fans $25 in spite of refusing to sign anything but his new album?
