Following Alice Cooper’s performance of his 1971 hit “I’m Eighteen” on Friday night at the Plaza Theatre, the 74-year-old singer told the intergenerational audience “That’s ‘I’m eighteen’, not ‘I’m Eighty'” to applause and laughter.
A mixture of young and old rock ‘n’ roll fans filled the 800 seats of the Plaza Theatre in downtown Palm Springs and enjoyed performances by legendary rock singer Alice Cooper, Bad Company and Free frontman Paul Rodgers, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and guitarist Orianthi.
Save the Plaza Board Member and former NBC Palm Springs anchor Gino LaMont described the lineup of the concert as “a little different” than what would have been presented in the theater during its heyday.
“I suppose in a lot of ways Alice Cooper is my generation’s version of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin,” LaMont said. “But I’m so impressed with the level of talent that was willing to come together to help raise money to save this amazing place.”
