Alice Coopers has revealed plans to perform in New England this fall. Just in time for Halloween, the veteran rocker will bring his “Raise the Dead” tour to Massachusetts for a night at the Lynn Memorial Auditorium on Thursday, October 17. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster and range in price from $43 to $67.

Cooper is currently working on a covers album that will focus on what he calls “the time period of the Hollywood vampires” according to a recent interview with Billboard. He plans on completing the album with longtime producer Bob Ezrin in September with hopes of an early 2014 release. On the road, Cooper has been previewing the album with covers of the Doors’ “Break On Through (to the Other Side)”, the Beatles’ “Revolution”, the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Foxy Lady” and the Who’s “My Generation”.

“We’re really happy, all of us, everyone involved in the covers because it’s pretty much what we wanted to do,” Cooper told Billboard. “We specified a certain time period and said, ‘Let’s stay within that. Let’s not move it around too much.’ We don’t want to be doing cover songs from the 80s and 90s when the Hollywood vampires kind of thing was more ’73, ’74, ’75.”

Cooper’s last studio release was 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare. The rocker’s 26th studio effort served as a follow-up to his hit 1975 album, Welcome to My Nightmare. Produced by Ezrin, the album featured an array of special guests including Vince Gill, Kesha, Rob Zombie, Kip Winger and Paterson Hood. Original Alice Cooper Band members Denis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith reunited on three tracks.
