Iron Maiden+Alice Cooper


Never ones to look back with anger, heavy-metal icons Iron Maiden are restaging aspects of the 1988 tour that supported their gold-selling Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, meaning Bic-ready headbangers like “The Evil That Men Do” and “Can I Play With Madness?” from their mid-’80s albums and a gnarlier than usual appearance by their zombie mascot Eddie. Shock-rock opener Alice Cooper might not be indulging a specific nostalgia trip, but he has an oeuvre of hits, which he’ll bring to life using all sorts of evil implements, including swords and—if we’re lucky—a guillotine.
