Alice at his best
4 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I own only a couple of Live concert on video. But this is a must have for anyone who loves hard rock, glam and of course Alice.

I remember seeing this for free on TV as part of a MTV Halloween weekend(i Believe IT WAS 1986 OR 1987) I was only 14 or 15 years old at the time and I knew little about Alice Cooper. In fact all I knew about him was that he was a man with a woman's first name, and that he had been popular in the 1970's, and that he had a wild/wicked persona, and that he sang a song called "Welcome to my Nightmare" aside from that I knew nothing else.

I was surprised as I watched that concert to learn that I knew a couple more of the songs like "Schools Out" and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" - I had just never knew who sang them.

However being a teenager of the 1980's, I was already familiar with other (more MTV oriented) hard rock bands that had (by that time) begun to dominate the pop music scene. Bands and artist like Billy Idol, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Ratt, Twisted Sister and Bon Jovi were at their zenith. and being a teenager of the times I loved those hard rock bands, and thought I'd watch this old school hard rocker named Alice Cooper perform....... and WOW! I was blown away by the Mtv concert (which was released on home video under the title "The Nightmare Returns") Not only did this old guy named Alice Cooper put on a show that was equal to his younger 1980's contemporaries, he blew them away. He put on a great show, the music was great. the visuals were memorable. I went the very next week and purchased a copy of the album "Constrictor" (which was the album that this tour was promoting).Constrictor became one of my most listened to album for the rest of my teen years......

now 21 years later I still own a copy of this concert. It is my 2nd most watched concert video that I have ever owned. ((the only one I've watched more is KISS' Mtv Unplugged))
