Cooper said in a statement, “We are excited to be celebrating our 20th year with a stellar lineup of talent who dedicate their time and passion to help us raise funds for our Rock Teen Centers.

No too long ago, Alice Cooper told us that he likes to keep the event loose for the musicians: “Y'know, I try to keep the Christmas Pudding to be like a party. When we get to rehearsal, I just go, 'Whaddya you guys wanna play?' I never sit down and say, 'We want you to play 'Come Sail Away' and blah-blah-blah.' And then they say, 'Well, let's play blah-blah-blah,' and I go, 'OK!' And then I go to the Tubes and go, 'Whaddya you guys wanna play?' And then I go to my band and say 'Whadda we want to play?'”
