Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry Supergroup: Live Dates
Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup featuring Alice Cooper, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan & drummer Matt Sorum and actor Johnny Depp, has announced their first live dates, set for next month.
The name “Hollywood vampires” is in reference to a loose collective of rockers, including Cooper, John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and Keith Moon, who got together in the early Seventies and drink on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow.
Cooper’s new Super Group is releasing their debut album September 11th.
The first Hollywood Vampires concerts will take place at the fabled Sunset Strip outpost the Roxy on September 16th and 17th. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday via Ticketfly.
The group has also planned an appearance in Brazil on September 24th as part of the Rock in Rio festival.
As for the Vampires’ music, the crew plays a mix of cover songs by members of the original Hollywood vampires, including the Who’s “My Generation,” the Doors’ “Five to One” and “Break on Through,” Nilsson’s “Jump Into the Fire,” Lennon’s “Cold Turkey” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression,” among others, along with some original tunes.
