To be fair, it's an Alice Cooper concert, so people are there for Alice. I only know of Arthur Brown because I'm a huge Alice freak, but I'm not particularly interested in his music, and I certainly wouldn't recognize him on stage.

As for the other guy, I think it's somewhat fair. Alice has 26 albums and I don't expect the average fan to know of anything from Flush the Fashion, Muscle of Love, Hey Stoopid, or Brutal Planet.

With that said, I'd love for him to drop some hits in favour of some songs that haven't been played lately. Though I doubt he'll change, I've heard that this tour hasn't hit the UK until now, so he might change it upon returning to North America. At least the Welcome 2 My Nightmare will be amazing (partly because of more songs from RYFAY )
5/21 - Alice Cooper
6/01 - Primal Fear (?)
6/04 - Untimely Demise
6/09 - Striker, Axxion, Manacle (?)
6/10 - Annihilator, Razor
