Following The Hollywood Vampires’ wildly successful show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, their massive concert in front of 100,000 screaming fans at the Rock in Rio Festival in 2015, their spectacular worldwide television debut on the 2016 GRAMMY Awards telecast reaching a global audience of almost 25 million people, and their 2018 European tour which won them an SSE Live Award at The SSE Arena, Wembley for Best Group to perform in 2018, fans worldwide demanded more. And now The Hollywood Vampires – Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp – are giving their fans what they want and will play a show at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, May 18, 2019.
Completing the Hollywood Vampires 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.
Joe Perry of The Hollywood Vampires is looking forward to the show. “Here is a gang of friends who came together really by chance and… we were finally able to wrangle our schedules and the energy just fell into place. Playing with this line up is like a dream come true. After seeing the reaction at Rock in Rio in front of 100,000 fans, I know this band is going to tear the house down. Hell, I would want to be in the audience to see us rip it up,” Perry says.
In 1969 on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the original 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). Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both Cooper and Depp, joined them and the Vampires began again as an environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together.
The Hollywood Vampires’ self-titled album, released in 2015, contains original songs by Cooper, Depp and Perry as well as rockin’ covers like their version of “I’m A Boy” by The Who.
