Alice Cooper Shares Opinions On The Possibility Of Doing Live Shows, ‘In Six Months Everything Is Gonna Be Way Better’
In an interview with May The Rock Be With You, Alice Cooper talked about when it will be possible for musicians to start performing live again and apparently, he has a very optimistic opinion about it.
The ‘Godfather of Shock Rock,’ Alice Cooper has been creating hit songs and conducting iconic shows around the world for more than 50 years now. He found one of the most iconic bands of all time back in 1964 along with Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.
For the last couple of months, Cooper was giving details on the album he had been working on. On February 26, 2021, the iconic vocalist released his 21st solo album titled ‘Detroit Stories.’ However, due to the ongoing pandemic, Alice had to suspend his plans to play his brand new songs live in front of his devoted fans until the authorities give the necessary permissions to do so.
Recently, Alice Cooper joined an interview with May The Rock Be With You and shared his opinions on the possibility of doing live shows any time soon. Alice mentioned that unlike many people, he is a very big optimist about this issue and stated that he actually thinks only ‘in six months, everything is going to be way better than it is now.’
Cooper continued by sharing the logic of his prediction which was related to the ongoing mass vaccination in the United States. He stated that in his hometown of Phoenix, there are around ten thousand people who receive the Covid-19 vaccines every day. So, he suggests that within six months almost half of the population will be vaccinated which will make the live concerts possible again by asking people to show their certificate.
Here is what Alice Cooper stated about the possibility of doing live shows in the near future:
“First of all, I’m a very big optimist about this. I think in six months, everything’s gonna be way, way better than it is now. I just think that the vaccine — I know in my hometown of Phoenix, there’s, like, ten thousand vaccinations a day, and I’m sure that Los Angeles and all the big cities are doing this.
And by that time, I would say half the population will be vaccinated. And then I think that if you show your certificate that you’ve been vaccinated, why couldn’t you go to a concert? Show your certificate and get in the show. There’s nothing to fear; everybody’s covered.
I think everybody’s being very, ‘Let’s not rush it. Let’s not this.’ But I’m more of a person that’s looking at the reality. I think that we’re gonna have a really big resurgence of everything in the next six months.”
