Alice Cooper Rocks Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena [Video/Photos]

Motley Crue and Alice Cooper hit the Van Andel Arena last night to kick off Motley's Final Tour in Grand Rapids!

Alice Cooper and his amazing band opened the show with a fantastic set of Cooper hits, one after the other, without any really stopping!

Alice and the gang ripped through the set at a fast pace, never slowing down and never letting up. The sound was great, the band was on fire and Alice brought out several of his famous props and effects for the show!

It's not a Cooper show if he doesn't cut off his head, get in the electric chair, sing in a straight jacket, and let his guitar players rip it up!

The festive and summery Independence Day weekend is here!

Celebrating the Fourth of July holiday this year means a three-day weekend for many and some extra time to truly relax, enjoy and play out on the water.
