Alice Cooper Rings in 2014 With All-Star Charity Concert
While Ryan Seacrest was hosting the latest edition of ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ in New York City on Dec. 31, Alice Cooper was busy doing a little rockin’ of his own out in Hawaii — and he had some famous friends to help him.
As we previously reported, Cooper spent his New Year’s Eve fronting the latest edition of his annual all-star charity concert, which uses the proceeds from its $500 admission price to help the Maui Food Bank. And what did attendees get this year, aside from the satisfaction of helping out a good cause? According to TMZ, the evening’s entertainment included appearances from Steven Tyler, Sammy Hagar, Richie Sambora, the Doobie Brothers and “Weird Al” Yankovic, all sharing the same stage at the Wailea Marriott Hotel.
Unfortunately, no one seems to have posted a set list from the event, and TMZ’s 18-second clip of the show doesn’t give us much of an idea of what this unlikely seeming supergroup performed as the clock ran out on 2013, but according to Cooper’s previous comments, they were planning to run through some classic hits by bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Based on the brief bit of footage (which you can watch above), it looks like they kicked off the new year in style.
