Hollywood Vampires Reveal Current Lineup, Announce 2019 U.S. Tour
The Hollywood Vampires, complete with a few new musicians ready to sharpen their fangs, will be hitting the road in May.
The group's original founders -- Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp -- remain, as does longtime Hollywood Vampires guitarist Tommy Henriksen. For this run, the band will be rounded out by veteran Alice Cooper drummer Glen Sobel, The Cult bassist Chris Wyse and Aerosmith musician Buck Johnson on keyboard and vocals.
The band's spring tour dates all are centered in the western part of the U.S., taking place May 10-18, starting in Las Vegas and wrapping in Indio, California. See the dates listed below.
Tickets for the Hollywood Vampires shows will go on sale this Friday (March 8) at 10AM local time. There will also be VIP ticketing options available starting March 5. Check the band's website for details.
The group takes its name from the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, where in 1969 a number of name musicians established a local hang at the upstairs bar. In order to join the club, you had to outdrink the other members, revealed Alice Cooper. The stories became legend, and Cooper and Johnny Depp decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live on, minus the drinking. Adding in Joe Perry, they recorded an album that served as a tribute to the original music legends of the Rainbow set. The group is said to be working on a second album, expected this summer.
