One of the Valley’s signature holiday events is coming back, and with big names in music to benefit a worthy cause.
Alice Cooper’s 21st Annual Christmas Pudding takes place Saturday, Dec. 9 at Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., in Phoenix. The 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Valley legend will be joined by Sammy Hagar, Nancy Wilson of Heart, Quiet Riot and Sixwire.
The fundraiser benefits Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Centers.
With locations in Phoenix and Mesa, the Rock Teen Centers inspire teens (ages 12-20) to grow through music, dance and art with vocational training in sound and recording, lighting and staging, and video production, as well as a computer lab and facility for teens to engage with their peers.
The Rock Teen Centers are free and are open 2-7:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The Phoenix location is 13625 N. 32nd St., and the Mesa center is at 122 N. Country Club Drive.
