9/2/2017 Dateline: Dicken’s Opera House Longmont, CO. When Dragontown Dan (Alice Cooper Tribute Band) played their most recent concert, the last thing they expected was a legendary concert hall ghost to set their 8′.5″ Purple Albino Goldenchild Reticulated Python loose in the venue. There is a storied history of paranormal activity within the facility, especially in the artists green room where the incident occurred. Dan Howell, Alice Cooper tribute artist commented, “We were preparing for sound check as I headed to the dressing room to bring Chronus (the band’s snake), down to the stage with us. The case he travels in has two secure “snap” lock handles. He has never escaped before, however, one of the handles was completely unlatched and he was more than half way out and headed under the sofa when I found him. The case was securely locked a half hour earlier.” Dan continued, “There is no way to open the case from the inside and the room was locked as well. This is indeed a slippery mystery that could have sent concert goers running for the doors!” The Dicken’s Tavern and Opera House was originally built in 1881 by William Henry Dickens a relative of the famous author Charles Dickens. There is a tale of an actor and his girlfriend who were discovered and killed by the irate husband of the actress. They may still be there… now setting more than their spirits loose amongst patrons and guests.
