With the COVID-19 vaccine moving from exclusive vaccination centers to Shop Rite pharmacies, big acts have resumed planning and announcing tour dates. But while many of the tours booked for the coming months look cool enough, there hasn’t yet been a big-ass tour that’ll get everyone wearing facepaint and doing shots of Listerine — until now, with Alice Cooper‘s announcement that he’s heading out this fall with KISS guitarist Ace Frehley.

“We’ve always had fun touring together and it should be a heavy rock show with Ace and a great way to get everyone back to live concerts again,” Cooper said in a statement. “It should be a great night of virtuoso guitars!”

“I’ve known Alice for over 30 years,” added Frehley. “We’re good friends, and we’ve toured together numerous times and always had a blast. Our musical roots are very similar, and the combination of our two bands make for a great event that nobody is gonna want to miss. Being off the road for more than a year because of the pandemic has been tough on everyone in the music industry, and I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the fans happy, healthy, and ready to rock.”
