My day started off great today, as I woke up to a text from my father, another loyal fan, saying that the Coop-man would be on Jay Leno late tonight and to make sure I watched. Now, I'm letting the rest of you crazy Coop lovers in on the secret as well!

Alice Cooper and his band, including newest touring member, 24-year-old female guitarist Orianthi will be performing on tonight's episode of Jay Leno, which airs at 11:35/10:35 central time on NBC channel 13.

Cooper has just wrapped up his summer No More Mr. Nice Guy Tour, which ended last month. The

 band is on a short break, and will then pick up with more touring on the 22, starting in New Zealand and going throughout Europe, Australia and Russia, finishing up in mid-November.

Be sure to tune in (or record) to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to watch Cooper's performance, as
