Alice Cooper brought his 'Night Of Fear' tour to London’s Wembley Arena on Sunday night (Oct 28), playing tribute to deceased musicians, including Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Keith Moon.

Towards the end of the set after band exited, Alice Cooper told to the crowd from behind the stage: "The '70s were hard on all my friends. The biggest names went down the hardest. They lived fast, they died young. They left their musical mark on all of us. I hung with them. I drank with them. I rocked with them. We were the Hollywood vampires. We ruled the night. Jim. John. Keith. Jimi. It’s time to raise the dead."

He then launched into covers of The Doors' 'Break On Through (To The Other Side)', The Beatles' 'Revolution', Jimi Hendrix's 'Foxy Lady' and The Who's 'My Generation'.

The set also included theatrical touches, including a monster-sized Alice Cooper dummy during 'Feed My Frankenstein'. Cooper then later strangled some stagehands with a straight jacket.

Earlier in the night, 'Everything I Hate About You' rockers Ugly Kid Joe and former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan's band Loaded performed.

'Hello Hooray'
