Alice Cooper RockDoc Out On DVD/Blu-ray June 3rd

LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 11: Musician Alice Cooper performs on stage during the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Award Show at Club Nokia on April 11, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
Fans will be able to take the acclaimed "Super Duper Alice Cooper" documentary home next month.

The movie, which premiered during April at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 3, featuring deleted scenes, expanded interviews and Cooper's full interview for VH1's "Metal Evolution" series. A Deluxe Edition will feature a second disc of live performances from Montreal in 1972 and at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2009, along with a 60-page hardback book.

Cooper, who authorized the project, tells us that he was particularly impressed with the footage that the filmmakers -- Toronto-based Banger Films, which also produced "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage," "Iron Maiden: Flight 666" and more -- were able to put together:

"Well, they did come up with a lot of footage that I've never seen before. They came up with things that, all kinds of video stuff and old movies and old things like that, things of us, that I'd never seen before. So they really did their homework. They really somehow found people that had old film and they found videos and stuff like that and they made good use of it. They tried to find stuff that people hadn't seen before."

"Super Duper Alice Cooper" is also set to air during September on VH1 Classic. Cooper begins a European tour on May 30 in the Czech Republic before hitting the road as the special guest on Motley Crue's farewell tour that starts July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
