WEST ALLIS (WLUK) -- The man who made Milwaukee's nickname of "The Good Land" famous is visiting the area this summer for the Wisconsin State Fair.

Shock rocker Alice Cooper is bringing his tour, A Paranormal Evening, to the fair's Main Stage Aug. 3.

Cooper, whose career stretches back more than 40 years, had a memorable appearance in the 1992 movie "Wayne's World," where he gave a short history of Milwaukee.
