Almost eight months after opening its doors with a superstar week of rock music, the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy is lining up more talent to raise money for the music school. Alice Cooper and Kiss will be there again, as will Vince Neil, Rob Zombie and others.

The Brennan Academy is located in Sioux Falls, S.D., but the Dec. 5 fundraiser will take place at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Tickets go on sale Oct. 11 at the venue’s website. Reserved seats cost $100, with proceeds going to a school known for offering free music lessons and instruction to kids who otherwise can’t afford them. Rock instruments are the focus.

The school’s founder, Chuck Brennan, is a former concert promoter and friend of both Cooper’s and Kiss’. In March, Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger and Sebastian Bach were part of a week-long celebration at the school that also included sets by comedians George Lopez and Louis Anderson. (Recently, Slash jammed with the kids from Brennan.)

Dee Snider, Tom Keifer of Cinderella, members of Europe, Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy, Jack Blades of Night Ranger and Kip Winger will also perform with the ’80s and ’90s cover band Hairball backing everyone.
