On This Day
April 11, 1977
Alice Cooper shocked and rocked off the faces of a total 40,000 fans on a Monday evening in Sydney, Australia. Making this the largest crowd to ever attend a rock show in the country’s history.
Pretty damn good for a Monday! Then again, it is Alice Cooper we are talking about.
As the show came to it’s end, Cooper was met by authorities and placed under house arrest for 2 hours in his hotel, up until he posted bail for the amount of $59, 632. Reasons behind the ordeal were due to an Australian promoter, who claimed to have paid Cooper for a 1977 tour, in which the rockstar did not show.
In the end, the two managed to hammer the issue out, by laying out the facts. Alice didn’t show but the promoter didn’t follow through with his end of that agreement either.
