Live Rock and Roll

Cheap Alice and Black Sabbath

I stopped commenting on the tour plans of bands for the most part because that is a full time job as it is and that is the whole reason behind the “Music News” section of the site but two things popped out at me in today’s edition of “This Day in Rock.”

The first is that Cheap Trick will be touring with Alice Cooper in late August. What caught my eye? Both bands will do a full performance but there will be a brief set where Alice will be backed by Cheap Trick! Interesting.

The other item was that the original line-up of Black Sabbath will be expanding their tour according to their website. The dates:

June 11th – Derbyshire, UK @ Donnington Park (Download Festival)
June 18th – Nijmegen, NET @ Fields of Rock Festival
June 20th – Vienna, AUT @ Wiener Stadthalle
July 1st – Roskilde, DEN @ Roskilde Festival
July 3rd – Stockholm, SWE @ Globen July 7th – Oslo, NOR @ Oslo Spektrum
