2003, Hampton Club Casino, N.H.

October 21, 2003The Hampton Club Casino, N.H.

I couldn't believe Alice performed at The Hampton Club Casino in New Hampshire. It's a small place and during this time Alice was doing his Bare Bones Tour although I notice on SickThingsUK they list it as The Eyes of Alice Cooper Tour. I say Bare Bones because a friend worked backstage gave me his pass the day after the concert along w/ a concert t-shirt. Maybe they just had a few Bare Bones passes left over  and used them up during The Eyes of Alice Cooper Tour.

This was the first time I ever made it to the front of the stage at an Alice Cooper concert. It wasn't a big crowd I don't know if it was because of being in October the off season. Hampton Club Casino is along the beach is a very crowded area during the summer. I was actually in ear shot distance to Brian Nelson but didn't want to bother him. He was very busy running around on stage setting things up.
It was an great show w/ limited theatrics because the stage is small. I remember my friend who worked there told me that previously I think it could of been Brutal Planet tour they tried to get Alice to perform but when Alice's people came down to check it out they said the stage was too small to fit all the props.
But it was good for them to comeback when Alice did a stripped down version and just played songs. Of course Alice used the smaller props like sword and such.
