Scranton Cultural Center at The Masonic Temple transformed into the Theatre of Death thanks to the one and only Alice Cooper.
The show featured all sorts of death scenes interspersed between such hits as “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Welcome to My Nightmare,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “School’s Out.”
“If you look away from the stage, you’ll miss something,” Cooper told The Times-Tribune before the show, also noting that “the audience plays a big part in the show. If you’re in the first 20 rows, you’re going to get souvenirs. Be very aware that you’re going to be in the show.”
Cooper seems like he can’t stay away from Northeast Pennsylvania. He returned on Aug. 23, 2011, to again perform at the cultural center and also came back Oct. 18, 2013; May 13, 2016; and March 10, 2018, all at F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre.

Today, Rock 107 made two announcements involving Cooper. The first was the Cooper will be headline a concert to mark the station’s 40th anniversary in June 17, 2020 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Twp. and second that starting tonight Cooper’s syndicated radio program ‘Nights with Alice Cooper’ will air on the station.
