Alice Cooper Supergroup The Hollywood Vampires To Play The Roxy

The Hollywood Vampires, made up of Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, have announced that they will play two dates at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip in L.A. on September 16 and 17.

The rest The Hollywood Vampires for the two nights includes Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) on drums, Duff McKagan (GNR) on bass, Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper, Warlock) on guitar, and Bruce Witkin (Adam Ant) on piano and guitar.

The dates are said to be their only U.S. appearances. Tickets go on sale Friday (August 14).

The band also has one international show scheduled at Brazil’s Rock in Rio. Before that show, the band will partner with Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization that has provided more than 1.8 million free hearing aids to people in need in more than 100 countries, to offer and fit hearing aids to more than 150 people in need. After the hearing aid fittings, the Hollywood Vampires and Starkey Hearing Foundation will bring a number of individuals to the show so they can hear music for the first time in their lives.

“Hearing connects us to life, our families and to the world around us,” said Bill Austin, founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation. “It’s a precious gift, and we are excited to work with the Hollywood Vampires to introduce so many to the world of sound and help them hear music for the first time.”

Three years ago, Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking). An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires live again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album. Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and with producer Bob Ezrin, the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. The new album is set to be released on September 11 and all artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.
