Alice Cooper and Cheap Trick Live: Dirty Diamonds Tour

Alice Cooooooooooperrrrrrrrrrrrrrr came to Kanssssssasssssssss and probably didn't enjoy himself too much therrrrreeeeeeee and the stadium wasn't even fullllll but that's what you get for coming to Toppppekaaaaaa, Kansssssasssssss. Actually, this was probably the greatest rock show I've ever been to. So awesome, in fact, that I don't think I'll be going to any more. ... Oh, and Cheap Trick didn't suck. I guess that's a weird-but-true fact... I could have sworn that Cheap Trick would totally suck ...

Overall Concert Score: *Speechless*
