Alice Cooper and his shock rock protégé Marilyn Manson are teaming up for month's worth of shows in June.
A poster for the Masters of Madness Shock Therapy Tour 2013, featuring the singers' faces and logos, has been posted on Cooper's official website, while dates on June 4 near Salt Lake City, Utah, and June 23 in Pittsburgh have already been announced, with more to follow.
The tour is slated to run June 1-29, closing at Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., while Cooper is also planning more North American headlining dates on his own after that as well as a spot at the Cropredy Festival on August 8 in England.
Cooper is continuing to promote his 2011 album "Welcome 2 My Nightmare," while Manson, who hit the road with Rob Zombie for a Twins Of Evil Tour this year and last, is still thumping the drum for last year's "Born Villain."
