Alice Cooper at the Stanley Theatre in Pittsburgh

Alice Cooper's first performance in PIttsburgh was at the  Electric Theatre

On July 11, 1972 he played a Pat DiCesare Productions concert at Three Rivers Stadium with Humble Pie (with Peter Frampton) and Uriah Heap. 

The show was originally scheduled at Three Rivers on June 23, but the Stadium was flooded due to a rain storm. 

Pat DiCesare commented:

"Alice Cooper (aka Vincent Furnier) and I got stuck together in his Hilton Hotel room in downtown Pittsburgh during a flood on a summer day back in 1972. I had him performing at Three Rivers Stadium that night. Our conversation fell far from what you would think considering his stage persona at that time. He was a really down to earth guy. We mostly discussed the stock market and the political times. I quite enjoyed him. Eventually he did play a very successful show, breaking the attendance record for a rock concert in Pittsburgh set earlier that summer by my Three Dog Night show at Three Rivers."
