The Last Temptation is a concept album by rock singer, Alice Cooper, released in July 1994 via Epic Records. It centres around a boy named Steven (also the name of the protagonist in Cooper's earlier work, Welcome to My Nightmare), and a mysterious showman. The showman, with apparent supernatural abilities, attempted with the use of twisted versions of morality plays to persuade Steven to join his travelling show, "The Theatre Of The Real - The Grand-est Guignol!", where he would "never grow up".



The full story was given in a 3-part comic book written by Neil Gaiman,[4][5] the first part of which accompanied the recording. In the comic, the showman (referred to only ever as such) was depicted as Cooper himself. Pages from the comic are seen in the Lost in America music video, while it is being read by Steven.

It was originally published by Marvel Comics and later reprinted by Dark Horse Comics, collected as trade paperback[6]


Music videos were made for "Lost in America" and "It's Me," though they received virtually no airplay. Both music videos are available for download from Sony/BMG.
