The Monsters Of Rock 2002 Programme
The Monsters of Rock Festival did indeed take place at Donington. But Alice Cooper never played the Monsters Festival. The Monsters of Rock 'Tour' in 2002 was just an attempt to tack on a larger bill to Alice's UK tour on the pretence of it kinda being the festival "on the road". It pretty much sucked, apart from Alice of course. This 'tour' never played at Donington. A further Monsters Of Rock 'tour' took place the following year with Whitesnake headlining but now the idea seems to have been abandoned.
As can be clearly seen on the back cover, the Monsters Of Rock Tour bill was Alice Cooper, Thunder, Quireboys and Dogs D'amour. Thunderdogs (who do exist, or at least did) were not on the tour.
The tour ran from Nov. 16th - 26th 2002, not 23rd February - 11 March 2002 (when in fact Alice was touring the UK Pro-celeb gold tournaments)
There is NO Alice content in the Monsters Of Rock programme apart from a comment from the programmes editor and a one page advert for Alice's Brutal Planet and Dragontown Cds and DVD. It was a complete ripoff. Alice was selling the signed Dragontown programmes on the tour (it was the Dragontown tour as you noted in the text for Dragontown) and apart from the cover image the Monsters programmes only featured the other bands. Of course the merchandisers weren`t telling the fans that and many people got seriously ripped off before realising that basically the monsters idea had been tacked on to Alice`s Dragontown tour.(Si Halley SickthingsUK)
The Guilfest Festival UK 2003
4th July 2003
Alice appeared at the Guilfest 2003 festival Guildford, UK as part of his Bare Bones Tour on the 4th of July 2003. Other artists to perform were Arthur Lee/Love, The Wildhearts, The Darkness and Arthur Brown.
Problems occurred during the event for Alice. Eric Dover's equipment wouldn't work with the in-house Guilfest equipment causing a 20 minute delay to the start of the show. The problems continued though with Eric getting more and more frustrated, throwing down two guitars and pulling his amps over at the end of 'School's Out'. The organisers had to close the show by 11pm and had bands scheduled right up to that time. The result was Alice wasn’t able to return for the his encores ('Poison', 'Elected', 'Disgraceland' and 'Under My Wheels'). (Si Halley's Sickthings UK website)

Brian Nelson, Alice's PA and Si Halley from UK Sickthings both haven't seen this "program before. Si suggests it was a bootleg program from the Welcome To My Nightmare Wembley concert UK 1975.
