Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 6/3/13, reviews, photos, setlists

ALICE COOPER / MARILYN MANSON @ RED ROCKS | 6/3/13 The moment everyone was waiting for and had to guess was coming came at the very end of the show, when Alice Cooper came back on stage for his encore. As the familiar strains of "I'm Eighteen" drew cheers from the crowd, Alice took the first verse of the song, and then Marilyn Manson came up on stage and sang the second verse before the two shared the choruses of one of Cooper's most iconic songs. One of the most memorable moments of the show, it wasn't so much a torch passing as a sign of mutual respect.
