HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES — featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp — have announced spring 2019 tour dates. The band, which previously performed at Rock In Rio and the 2016 Grammy Awards in addition to U.S. and European tours last year, will play several shows on the West Coast in May.
HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES VIP packages will be available beginning Tuesday, March 5. VIP packages may include a meet-and-greet, photo with the band, a premium seat, and exclusive merchandise. Regular tickets go on sale on Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. local time. For more information, go here.
Completing the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live lineup will be mainstay guitarist Tommy Henriksen (ALICE COOPER), along with rock star musician friends Glen Sobel (ALICE COOPER) on drums, Chris Wyse (THE CULT) on bass, and Buck Johnson (AEROSMITH) on keyboard and vocals.
In 1969, on the Sunset Strip at the legendary club, the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar. It was a gathering place for the rock stars living in or passing through L.A. "To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members," says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the original Vampires.
Cooper and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again — minus the drinking. Cooper and Depp were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both, and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. An environment was born for great artists to hang, laugh, and play together.
As Yahoo Music said, "The word 'supergroup' gets thrown around a lot these days, but truly, it doesn't get much super-er than HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES."
New music from the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES is expected this summer.
