Cooper joined the play's cast for a rollicking rendition of his 1972 hit "School's Out." This week also happened to mark the 40th anniversary of the song hitting #1 on the UK singles charts.
For fans who were paying attention to the singer's Twitter page earlier this week, Cooper had posted a series of messages hinting that he might be visiting to the Rock of Ages stage. After his appearance, he tweeted a tongue-in-cheek message that read, "Gather round Cast & Crew of [Rock of Ages UK]... All here? OK great...KILL THEM!! No no, what I MEANT to say was THANKS! Sorry, force of habit."
Alice recently ******* a European leg of his No More Mr. Nice Guy tour. ***** be returning to the UK in late October for his third annual Halloween Night of Fear outing, which will visit seven cities. Cooper's next North American tour kicks off November 7 in Calgary, Canada, and is plotted out through a December 1 show in Indio, California.
