Glam Rock: Stage

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

In the light of the overtly fabricated, patched together, and made up nature of glam performance personae, it is intriguing to find a cluster of references to gothic horror in glam rock, particularly to Frankenstein. Within Glam Rock itself, Alice cooper has exploited the gothic connection the most, building first his stage shows, then his entire career around it.

As it is known, Glam Rock is representative because of the usage of feathers, animal print, spikes, dark attires and many other things, a Glam Rock stage couldn’t be simple; mainly this stage is full of lights, glitter and bold metallic shapes.

Glam Rock is something eye-catching and bold, so the big “KISS” sign, a little bit of fire and a lot of lights are the perfect combination to make a great show!
