Born Robert Bartleh Cummings, Rob Zombie's creative journey has been a relentless exploration of the sinister and the supernatural. A multifaceted artist with a propensity for the occult, Zombie’s distinct sound combines heavy, distorted guitar riffs with pounding industrial beats, and his unmistakable aesthetic showcases his love for B-movie camp, horror nostalgia and psychedelic imagery. Zombie initially rose to fame as the frontman and founding member of the ‘90s heavy metal band White Zombie before embarking on a legendary solo career with his groundbreaking debut album “Hellbilly Deluxe” (1998). A mainstay on U.S. Top Ten charts throughout his career, Zombie further solidified his status as an icon with albums like “The Sinister Urge” (2001) and “Educated Horses” (2006). Most recently, he unveiled his seventh album “The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy” in 2021.
As a filmmaker, Zombie has unleashed a string of cult classics, including “House of 1000 Corpses” (2003), “The Devil's Rejects” (2005) and a pair of high-budget reboots for the “Halloween” series. Beyond his artistic endeavors, Zombie has established himself as an unwavering advocate for the unconventional, a champion of individuality and a fierce defender of the freedom of expression. His visually stunning live performances, often featuring elaborate stage sets and a cast of outlandish characters, reflect his unyielding commitment to creating immersive experiences that push the boundaries of what is deemed normal.
Known as the godfather of shock rock, Alice Cooper has become one of the most influential and enduring figures in the world of rock music. The band Alice Cooper formed in the late 1960s, and the lead vocalist, Vincent Furnier, eventually assumed the name as their charismatic and twisted frontman. With Alice Cooper at the helm, the band embarked on a journey that would change the face of rock forever.
After pioneering the eccentric and dark realms of psychedelic rock in his early albums, “Pretties for You” (1969) and “Easy Action” (1970), Cooper released the breakthrough hits “I’m Eighteen” and the album “Love It to Death” in 1971. This was followed by a string of iconic releases such as “Killer” (1971), “School's Out” (1972) and “Billion Dollar Babies” (1973). Alice Cooper's stage shows became legendary spectacles, featuring electric chairs, guillotines and boa constrictors as stage props. His unique style, merging shock value with genuine musical talent, was a precursor to the shock rock and theatricality embraced by artists like Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and Slipknot. His enduring presence in the rock landscape is a testament to his dedicated followers and his ability to evolve and adapt over time, maintaining a steadfast connection to his '70s zenith while embracing new musical avenues. Doors open at 7 p.m.
