Alice Cooper and The Cult have announced a six-date co-headline arena tour across the UK, for May and early June 2022. The run of shows will begin with a gig at Swansea Arena on 23 May and end at the First Direct Arena, Leeds, on 1 June. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday at 10am and are available here.

The shows will mark the first time either of the veteran acts has played the UK since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also give Cooper an opportunity to play songs from last album, 2020’s Detroit Stories, which reached No 4 in the UK charts on its February 2021 release and earned him strong reviews.

And there may be more music to come from Cooper, talking to Flood Magazine in March 2021, he revealed: “I’m actually working on two albums right now, entirely different ones. I’ve been home collecting lyrics, collecting music, and I know all the guys in all the bands are writing. At some point we’re all going to get together with Ezrin [Bob, producer] and go through a hundred songs. ”

The announcement follows a statement from The Cult last month in which Ian Astbury and co announced the cancellation of all their planned 2021 shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic: “The Cult will regretfully be postponing all upcoming shows for the rest of the year due to the ongoing flux in the world while we continue to adjust to the ‘new normal’.

“Our shows are a communal space where we share the celebration of live music. It is apparent that the optimism we shared in the performing of live shows for 2021 was premature. We refuse to put a single fan, whom we love and respect in harms way. Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in the Spring of 2022.”
