The Rolling Stones are plenty, but Alice Cooper just makes the show a whole lot better, said fans lining up for tickets yesterday to the Sept. 23 show.

Under the shade of the Metro Centre’s outdoor concourse area off Duke Street, the group of about 20 fans yesterday evening said they were happy to hear that the famed hard rocker was joining the lineup for the concert.

Cooper’s website reported this weekend that he would play the Halifax Common concert, although nothing has been confirmed yet by the show’s organizers.

Dartmouth resident Doug Glenn said seeing Cooper would be a great addition to the show.

But the 46-year-old crossing guard was the first in line to buy two tickets and it was just one band that mattered to him – the Rolling Stones.

“I said as a child growing up, if they came to Halifax, I’ll go,” Glenn said.

He counts Satisfaction as among his favourite Stones’ tunes, and will take his wife Melissa to the show.

“I’ve never seen the Stones; I couldn’t afford to go to Moncton, so this is sort of a dream come true,” he said.

Lounging on a red sleeping bag with a small cooler at his side, Glenn said he lined up at 7 a.m. yesterday for the two $116.25 general admission tickets.

It took another three hours before he got some company.

Ellershouse resident Terry Anthony, 41, was second in line at 10 a.m.

“I do this a lot,” she said with a laugh, perched in a canvas folding chair.

In fact, Anthony estimated that this is her 15th or 16th line-sit. She did it for the Rolling Stones’ Moncton concert last summer, for Pearl Jam, and for the Juno Awards, among others.

She’ll buy at least nine tickets, she said.

Tickets go on sale starting this morning at 10 a.m. at Ticket Atlantic box offices.
