Hollywood Vampires, the rock and roll band featuring blockbuster actor Johnny Depp, shock-rock icon Alice Cooper and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, will tour the UK in the summer of 2023 with a date that also includes The O2 in London. The trio will be joined by Tommy Henriksen for the UK tour, who is currently based in Switzerland with his family.
The band took its name from an infamous drinking club that included Cooper, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz and Harry Nilsson with additional members including John Lennon joining the drinking den at points. The band itself has a rotating cast of performers similar to the rotating cast of drinkers, with the first incarnation of Hollywood Vampires composed of Cooper, Depp, Perry, Guns n Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Matt Sorum, along with rhythm guitarist Henriksen.
The group has featured a lineup of guest performers during their shows including Tom Morello, Geezer Butler, Perry Farrell, Zak Starkey, and Kesha during their performance at the Roxy Theatre and across California, but only undertook their first concert tour in 2016 after the release of their debut album, Hollywood Vampires, the year before.
Speaking about the upcoming tour, Alice Cooper said: "Well, it’s already been three years since the Vampires have toured because of COVID. Also, Johnny has his movies, Joe’s in Aerosmith and I’m in Alice Cooper, so we have to look at that whole thing and see when we can all get a month or two off where we can go out and tour. And, we are going to be doing that, next summer coming up, 2023.”
"I can’t wait to get back with the guys, I really love being in that band. My band is great and wonderful, but playing with the Vampires is an entirely different situation. I don’t necessarily do any theatrics at all, I’m just the lead singer in a band, and the band just happens to be one of the best bands around! It’ll be great to see Johnny and Joe and Buck and Chris and all the guys.”
"We’ll be rocking these places, especially the UK, I can’t wait to get to the UK! Lock your doors, put garlic all around, because the Vampires are coming!"
