Mr. Niceguy is out. Ol' Black Eyes is in.

Hometown rebel rocker Alice Cooper, 71, announced that he and Grammy Award-winners Halestorm, fronted by powerhouse Lzzy Hale, will co-headline a 19-date North American trek this summer including a stop at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Saturday, July 20.

Cooper's touring show, dubbed "Ol' Black Eyes is Back" will have a "very different look" according to the press release. In recent years, the "School's Out" rocker has famously used a giant prop guillotine to behead himself because, you know, rock 'n' roll. However, when Cooper is on the road with his aptly named supergroup, Hollywood Vampires, (where he and bandmates Joe Perry and big screen pirate Johnny Depp keep cosmetic companies and leather manufactures in business with their parade of gothic dad fashion), it's all about original hits, covers, and intimate mic sharing.

Tickets ($29.50+)  go on sale Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased by visiting or
