American rocker played his first gig at the iconic venue in 1972
Legendary rocker Alice Cooper unveiled his handprints at the iconic Wembley Arena Square of Fame today (Tuesday).
The former hellraiser, who is now a born-again Christian, is the only solo artist to have headlined at the venue in the last five consecutive decades.
The 64-year-old, who played his first gig at Wembley in 1972, said: “Wembley is one of those venues that gives you goosebumps when you walk in the door.
“It’s high on the list of gigs that every band dreams of playing. We’ve been there so many times, it always feels like a homecoming and an honour to this day.”
Alice Cooper’s achievement will sit alongside other world-class musicians including Bryan Adam and Madonna and comedian Lee Evans.
John Drury, Wembley Arena’s general manager, said: “It’s an honour to have Alice Cooper reach this landmark.
